DSC_0139Travis’s 2003 Nissan Skyline 350GT
This is the third car we have featured now of Travis’s, and it’s now time for this – his new toy!
Anyone that knows Travis would know how he is when it comes to cars. Always kept immaculate with only the highest quality parts. His new whip, a Nissan Skyline 350GT in pearl white, his previous car (370z) was unfortunately written off when he was hit in the side by a commodore. Travis sustained a back injury in the accident, and so with his new car was looking for something safe, comfortable and above all – Japanese!

The light weight Forged Nissan wheels and Kumho tyre package hug the car to the ground, assisted by the aftermarket coil overs supplied from the TEIN comfort sport range. Only a few basic, subtle – but high quality modifications to see here.

Travis’s plans for the car include lowering the car some more, some new aftermarket aero pieces, and some further performance mods to the engine to harness some more of its potential.

Yesterday we finally held our 7th main event, after quite some time without an event we have hit back hard with a massive turn out.

I’d estimate we have 130 cars there at least, and probably twice as many people. A great turn out and thank you so much to all of you that coming down.

I don’t know if many other photographers were down there but I got what I could in the short time I had to get around to all the cars.

Photography by Ryan Chappell exclusively for www.perthimports.com

We started out at City Beach, a massive turn out for the meet, a great atmosphere – everyone was very well behaved here so we appreciate that.
We went on up the coast, through a few meet points and ending up in Kalamunda where we went through the Zig Zag scenic drive and then on through the tunnel.

A great variety of quality cars there last night, hope to see you all on the next one.

Sunday Night Photography Fun

March 5th, 2013 | Posted by chappelle in General - (0 Comments)

Last Sunday we went out scouting some photography locations, it was a good night out enjoying the scenery and driving the cars. Anyone into photography will know you may take hundreds of pictures, only to end up with a few good ones.

I am new to photography, but I feel I get better and better each time I get out with the camera – If you’re interested in a photo shoot of your car, I’d like to shoot it, get in contact with me and we can organise some time we can shoot it – I can’t shoot my Evo and Travis’s 370 forever! Hit the contact page above and send me an email.

A night of photography is always good fun, usually entailing your usual driving around looking for new places to stop, we can easily chew through hours of shenanigans during a shoot

Anyway, here are some of my favourites we managed to pull together that night. (more…)
