The Only Way is Essex.

Post by adminsdd 08/10/2012 0 Comment Car Meet's,
Being from Essex and the recent popularity of that horribly scripted but somehow very addictive TV show The Only Way is Essex, It has put us Essex boys & girls in an even more so negative light. It portrays us all as, if put bluntly; Fucking idiots who only care about their hair & making sure people out in the nightclubs think they're better than they actually are.Now there is no denying that there are a certain amount of people that live round this way are like that, to the point where if you drive through the town center of a Saturday evening, everyone looks identical haha. It makes for good viewing but whatever; each to their own.S2kWe arn't all like this though, I put out a tweet asking if anyone was free in the evening as I wanted to get my Camera out. Word got around and I managed to get a little group of Colchester kids to come out in their cars for some pictures.Now, me being the ever professional. I forgot to check my equipment since I had last used it. I had a camera with half a battery & an external flash with No batteries haha so we had to make due, we found a warehouse which had awesome lighting & loads of sensors that never actually warned us we wernt allowed to be there, but thankfully when the jacked up dude came down to give us shit about being on his property he allowed us an hour to do the pictures then we had to be on our merry way, which I thought was decent of him as he could have just told us to fuck off and we would have been done for the night with zero images & loads of wasted time.Like i said, no flashes...little help from my friendsI thought as it was nothing serious and none of these guys were paying me I'd just experiment with my camera settings as to be honest, I don't ever practice and I would like to get better. This picture I think its a bit too dark but kinda has a nice atmosphere to itsevenserm...zakS2000I believe these may have been the last pictures of Sam's S2000 on the SSR's...rear agPete's DC2 gets a lot of love on the Facebook page I see this guy all the time yet have never done a real photoshoot of this car, I'll be sure to get one before winter is in full effect..DC2dc2DC2 frontI really love how it sits on the Advan RG1'sFront 2Another front angleDc2from behind...rearrearRob's CRX is one of the newest additions to the local Honda contingency, I've known Rob a few years now meeting through mutual friends when we went out clubbing and getting drunk every Thursday and Saturday as "teenagers" haha, he's always said how much he has wanted a CRX Vti so I'm glad he finally managed to get himself such a neat example. We just need to find him some rims now & he's good to go...CRXcrxWas cool for me to hear once he got it one of the first things he text me about was getting some 6TWO1 stickers on it. Still feels great when people offer support to myself & the site!Rearharsh lightingUK V JDM - Fellow CRX Owner Richard lined up with him..crxsRich's CRX SiR...richCrxCRXTom Crowther who I have known mannny years now recently purchased this UK Spec AE86, It stayed this standard for about 2 weeks, Its now dropped on a set of SSR's but stay tuned in the future for much more on this car...AE86rearNow like I said at the start, Colchester can be misconceived as being full of reproduced bellends that's only goal in life is to make sure their precious little hair cut stays trim and that the cool kids up town think they are still cool, looking down on all of those that have hobbies and ambition. But, even though this is the case for some, not all hope is lost, some of us managed to escape the retarded fashion gene pool & strive for other ventures. A good friend of mine Vinnie started up a clothing line called OWN THE NIGHT, which offers a alternative look whilst sticking to the musical routes that it grew from. I recently got a few of the products and I was so impressed I asked Vinnie if I could sell them on the 6TWO1 store, he agreed and all products are now online here to purchase - Click for OTN GoodnessZak actually took this creep shot of me rocking one of the vests. It was a warm evening. lol.otnFinishing off with this, when I arrange something, even something as small and off the cuff as this was, I want to make it fun & I know we are all a fan of a gunpush picture? For those that do not know, a gunpush is when someone drastically tries to make themselves look hench in an image by pushing out their biceps with a folded arm pose and pushing out "the GUNS" With the hands in the background. So we grouped up to get a Group Gunpush.GunpushIf you have a 6two1 sticker on your car, send us your gunpush pics next to your car with your address to : adam@6two1.com and I will make a gallery on the facebook page for a bit of fun. You'll also receive a free 6TWO1 Gunpush sticker.Thanks for reading. haha...
