Lol it made me stop right in the middle of the parking lot, stopped and stared, walked all around it and took some pics :p I was actually hoping the owner would walk up when I was looking around the car

Nice, there aren't any ST205's in my area, not that I've seen anyway. Maybe I'll make it down to Kelowna with my '92 after I've done the head. Are there ever any non-Ogopogo meets organized?

underscore

We've got a cruise coming on the 17th, chances are my RC won't be running but the GT-S will. There are a lot of unofficial meets and cruises here, look up KelownaCarLife or Classified Motorsports on Facebook and you should see some info when some pop up.

Thanks, I'll check those out. I'm near Kamloops but Kelowna isn't that far to go. Anyone here frequent the Knox hillclimb? I'm usually there with my buddy who races his Mini.

I try my best to check out the Knox Mountain hill climb, but the timing doesn't always work out for me. I did manage to catch it this year. Which mini do you know...the white stock looking one or that really modded green one. I've taken pics of both :)

Here are some pics from the 2011 hill climb that I took: 2011 Knox Mountain Hill Climb photos (http://www.flickr.com/photos/trialsmaster2/sets/72157626790960986/)

Those are your photos?? I've seen some of them before, nice work! #441, the white stock-looking is the one; he had it down at Laguna Seca this year and it was the second-fastest Mini ever to run there on 10" wheels. The car is all metal and is totally insurable. I did some machine work on his last engine, but the one he's running now is much more impressive.

trialsmaster2
09-13-2011, 10:34 PM
Yep, those are my photos from this year's hill climb. Actually the owner of that very same Mini emailed me not too long ago regarding some of the Knox mountain photos I had taken of their car. I love the wheel lift that little Mini gets in turn three! I've always had a thing for Mini's so, I always find myself taking photos of that one :)

Nice shot of Larry's car in the back, too! Tm2, if you're heading through my area shoot me a pm - if Geoff is around I'm sure he'd like to talk Mini's to no end. We're also building a couple of Honda-powered Minis...they probably won't see the road for another 2 years though.

trialsmaster2
09-14-2011, 04:20 AM
Well, I head to Salmon Arm everyday, Monday to Friday. I'll have to drive solo instead of carpooling sometime to check out minis and an Alltrac :)

That's a great shot of not one but both minis perfectly framed, Jon! Maybe next time we can aim to be at the Knox Hillclimb at the same time.

I saw an absolutely beautiful RA25 today, brown with a cream coloured stripe down the side, gold mesh rims, what looked like a stock spoiler and rear window slats. It was so sick I slowed down so I could drive just behind it the whole way to work. Anyone have any info on it? (if it's local)

trialsmaster how long have you had that Delica? Any chance you once drove it from Victoria to the Okanagan a few summers back and saw a black Dodge Stealth/3000GT with a wing about 5 times?

trialsmaster2
09-14-2011, 05:03 AM
Hey, underscore, do you mean this one? If so, it's a local Kelowna car that plays on the same softball team as my sister in law. http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/trialsmaster2/6146256478/

We have had our Delica for 3 years now. Interestingly, we have never had it on the island...so that wouldn't have been us that you saw that time. :)

Hmm SA huh? Well I'm about 40 minutes west of that, and from my place it's way quicker to head back down hwy 97. But if you do decide to come out let me know as it would need to coincide with work schedules out here.

sweet. i like the rims. :P they'd look good on my celica lol

bleST
09-15-2011, 02:25 AM
Thanks and yeah they would look good on yours! I'd prefer some 5-spoke with a bit o' dish, but these are nicer than the stock ones. I've got a set of Tein coilovers waiting to go in as well, that should lower it an acceptable amount.

Hmm, rhd. Are there many all tracs around Kelowna? At least you know where to find that one, haha...

I have a '91 narrow-body jdm gt-four parts car as well, body parts only though...if anyone's needing anything. Not really wanting to ship stuff though that's why I'm not advertising it.

Different corner lamps and different tails (both jdm now) :p

gah I need those tails.

Definitely Andrew's old car. We should let him know it got spotted. :)

He probably added the ctech sticker after ogopogo, since I was doling out tonnes of them for free.

I sold him those tails and front clear corners at ogopogo 2010 :)

saw a white gt4 with white rims downtown tonight... never seen it around town before. looked good!

underscore

Nice! Hopefully it's a local.

That teal Celica got hit on the rear quarter about a year or so ago, no clue if it ever got fixed as I haven't seen it since.

Those rims are the same ones in Gran Turismo 2 that I would put on a red RC that I always started my save file with and bought first thing. They were labeled as Yokohama rims in the game... I know Rota makes a knock off, but it's 4x100 or something. I tried scouring the net for them, but couldn't ever get any solid results. (Yes, I know the date on this... still posting anyway).

underscore
04-02-2014, 04:34 PM
Have you tried talking to Rota and seeing what they're a copy of?

No response, to any email I've ever sent them.

underscore

A quick google shows those are the Rota HM3, which is a copy of the Yokohama Advan SAR3.

Are you going to make it out to the ogopogo at all?

underscore
08-07-2014, 08:11 PM
I don't think so but I'm trying to make it out for AutoX or a cruise at least.
