DSC_0231

As the sun rose from the east down here in Malaysia, The boys from Back wheel Bitches & Twinbladez Stickers finally gathered their nostalgic rides after months of planning to embark on an uphill climb to Genting Highlands Malaysia. The estimated distance from the rendezvous point till the top of Genting Highlands was about a 47.7KM long drive, with a challenging 15KM steep uphill climb which will prove to be a gruelling test of endurance for the classic cars.

Media partners who were involved on ground to witness the heart pumping and adrenaline moments, were RTM Malaysia, Atara Racing Datsuns, Malaysia CCCM and lastly Retro Garage in conjunction with 7tune. There were 30 cars that participated consisting of Datsuns, Toyotas, Volkswagens and a Mercedes, We here at Retro Garage and 7tune was amazed with the high spirited aura radiating from the drivers as man and machine form a special bond to push forward to the peak and their goal was simple; to reach to the top and nothing could stand in their way.

As the drive progresses, The convoy of classics were 25KM closer to the chequered flag but unfortunately there were a few problems that had come up; few cars were left behind as their machine experienced technical problems while pushing the limits of their rides and for some, they stopped for an hour or so to let their cars cool down before they resume another half of torturing drive up fairly steep corners. Eventually the convoy arrived at the peak of Genting Highlands Malaysia with an ecstatic atmosphere and an overwhelming amount of happiness can be seen on each participant’s face. Nothing can explain the sheer excitement more than seeing those drives who made it up like a bunch of kids that just got huge amounts of candy.
