Cars & Kopi – Happy Chinese New Year 2017!

Taking a short break from our Tokyo coverage, we head over from one carpark to the next! But this time, we’re back home in sunny Singapore and once again it was time for a Cars & Kopi meetup, held during the Lunar New Year period.

The weather was fantastic with a nice cool breeze early in the morning, coupled with light traffic due to the holidays, it made the drive down to our meetup locale very pleasant indeed.

The great weather also meant that turnout was fantastic and once again, the carpark was filled with a lovely mix of cars and many were early!

I don’t see many of these Suzuki Ignis (Swift) Sports left, which is a real shame, they drive really well and are just so much fun to throw around.

A pair of lovely air-cooled Porsches. Which vintage would you prefer? 993 or 964?

I brought along the E88 this time since it was a nice morning for open top motoring.

Shortly after the Lamborghini left a drop top Z4 parked alongside our “Super cool black car”.

These GC era WRXs are now starting to show up more often and many have been reverted back to a stock or mild tune look.

964 meets Kujira (Blue whale) Crown. Don’t ask me why it was called the Blue Whale, i have no idea.

This bone stock S15 Silvia might be even rarer though. When was the last time you saw such a clean S15?

Sunny meets Altezza.

Awesome looking Spec-C and V-Spec GTR.

Can’t go wrong with TE37s on a GTR. (Or most other cars for that matter)

I used to lust after these DC5Rs.

Great looking Type-X styled S13. Interesting funky fuzzy seats.

I think we can safely say that this meet went to the cars from the Rising Sun with the Germans close behind.

The awesome turnup made for some nice group shots!

New meets slightly old.

ANOTHER Spec-C turned up. Where do all these hide?

Then this showed up…

Followed by this…

355 and 308… Surely this is what happens when dreams come true…
