When an obsession becomes an addiction: Patra Negara’s Mercedes Benz W114 280 1975 on Borbet B wheels
Alwafi Auzan

You have your regular Mercedes enthusiasts, then you have your proper Mercedes nut cases, and then at the top of the tree you have Patra Negara. Never gave we met someone with this much adoration for the humble old European car. Since Patra started driving, he has owned this car. He grew up on the back seat of an old mercedes benz. Both of his parents had similar car too when he was a kid. There is for sure has lots of memories from this car. 

He figured that this benz would be an inexpensive car to start all the memories with. He also said to us that he never expected this beauty to get to where she is now. It is no surprise that Patra draws a lot of attention on the road. His 17 inch Borbet B wheels are real attention grabbers. Measuring 8.5 inch width at the front and 10 inch at rear, there is enough dish to swallow the factory 15 inch rims.

To compliment his simple path, Patra has compiled the period correct W114 1970s style in several sources. It was safe to assume that he has owned one of the best looking W114 that we had featured of to his date. This is what it looks like when an obsession becomes an addiction. But who can blame him? Instead to say more about his positive attitude to resurrects this lady in a correct manner.

Cargasm December Rain 2 show – Hussein Sastranegara Bandung
Iman Machmud

There’s something about Cargasm event that brings cars out of the garage works. It’s the one of the best event in Indonesia’s scene that drags cars out of the garage or home without compromising the quality of participants. No one the participants dreaming about achieving silly trophies of best A, best B, best C, until best Z then showing off his/her glorious victory from the cheap looking event then end up by getting a great exposure in all over media. This event was successfully held in Hussein Sastranegara airport on 26/12/15 last year. Things that we realized when we came down to the event that perfectly organized by Cargasm team, it’s about several cars cruised down from Jakarta, and other areas near West Java were interested in joining this event as well. Easy to say that this event has it’s own strengths that built by their good reputation and classy events so far. This series 3 of Cargasm December Rain for us personally is truly becoming the most wanted car show that all enthusiasts should be waiting for. Over 200 quality cars entered into this year’s event venue with hundreds of spectators walking around the showcase. So many cars wanted to floss before the event, so the organizers had to shut down registration early due to the given venue’s capacity. Besides the display cars, plenty of beautiful food truck vendors were on hand as well. We’ve highlighted some of the nice rides here, but remember to spend some times to visit @cargasm_id on Instagram for their upcoming event series. Now we please you to check our latest photos set brought to you by Alwafi Auzan.

Iman Machmud

We confident to say that Cargasm meet up is one of the most interesting car enthusiasts gathering in Indonesia.  Automotive enthusiasts especially from Bandung-West Java gather for a day long and we know it was never a disappointment to be a part of this meet up. As a matter of fact the word is that Cargasm even saw an increase in attendees at this latest 2014 meet up. Perhaps you wondering how they were looks in our previous partnership called Breeze of Summer, you can click here to see more. Talk about end 2014, we surprised that receiving an invitation from Cargasm guys that they want to held their 11th meetup called by #decemberrain. The good things about this event were seemed to be more rousing because several automotive shops and others such as: JAP Wheel Clinic, Allriginal Wheels, F*ck Wheel Dude, 169 Autogarage, R-Kups vape, AutoMobile Bandung, Bandung Food Trucks, and Piston Project were happy to became a great sponsors and supporters for this event. At this meetup, Cargasm open their gate to all car enthusiasts to join with an extra IDR 150,000,- fee included tshirt, F&Bs, and some voucher from sponsors. Yes, there were a handful of JDM / USDM / Stance and Fitment style present, but there were certainly not as many as people on social networks knows how good the enthusiasts in Bandung. But honestly said, our biggest disappointment is the fact that we failed to join. Heck, our friend Ardie Pichaus cheers us with his coverages and successfully cured our dumps. We’ll be dropping a coverage throughout this glorious meet up today, and we hope you enjoy these next couple photos and maybe even get some inspiration for your future builds.

Focus to the fullest: Raka’s converted Ford Focus RS
Iman Machmud

Perfection can be seen to define and even more difficult to done with it. Regardless, most of Indonesian car enthusiasts find themselves on the journey to achieving perfection with their suitable theme or style that they want to achieved. In spite of the most condemning commentary from other enthusiasts, or event parents, sometimes online forums can offer we are often our own toughest comments. Luckily, the endless style of modifications offers the opportunity for continuous improvement in the pursuit of our own perfection. Ford Focus has been on their own destiny towards one of the best compact city car in Indonesia. Fans of the Ford Focus often joke at the odd nature of its you-hate-it-but-later-love-it car on this today’s platform model. Although opinions on styling vary it is tough to argue against the fact that the chassis has more rigid, the brand new features refined, and the Ford Focus RS model is the most powerful line up from this model. Raka Andhitio Brian, the owner of this fully transformed Focus RS, grew fond of the body style following the magnificent Ford Focus RS to his native 4-door Ford Focus. After purchasing the car new in last two years, Raka and his best friend from FA Garage set out on a quest for Ford Focus RS exterior transformation.

Can you ever truly achieve perfection? What does it actually mean to be perfect? And who exactly is the judge of it? People will spend their entire lives trying to chase after something they can’t or hard to achieve. Raka modified his Focus for his own liking, to be the best Ford Focus RS transformation on the street. People these days gain attention by losing respect, but I can say for a fact that Raka is far from that kind of person. He is a true believer of everything being about having fun, taking risks, and and execute any details with perfect action.

It’s hard to know where to start when describing the all-new 301bhp Ford Focus RS that became Raka’s obsession to followed. In simple terms this is the second generation of a car which cost Ford an awful lot of money at the beginning of this century, but that also did lots to restore the public’s faith in the RS brand. In the raw the RS looks like a proper thug-mobile. From its gaping grille to its 19in wheels and tyres and enormous wing, the RS leaves you in no doubt about its intentions. The transformation began with bought some original parts including doors, fenders, and almost every parts of the original exterior from Ford Focus RS by helps from FA Garage, Bandung-Indoensia. The color of Raka’s Focus is super white paint that as though Raka trying to shown the perfection details of his works. It is a very dynamic and changes quite a bit depending on the light though. It’s basically a pretty suit versatile color; Works surprisingly well on a sports hatch, but I could also see it on any other sleek stance cars out there.

If size matters, this Ford Focus has got it made. Massive 19×9.5″ and 11″ Work Wheels shrouded in sticky Toyo tires sit at all four corners. The fender enlargement is fair enough on a based of Ford Focus RS and it takes large wheels to balance the look. The 19×11″ wheels look fantastic on the car, finding the right balance between just enough lip with just enough stance looks.

Raka is one of those individuals that sets a goal and then proceeds to kick ass accomplishing it. Not one to rest on his bed, his future plans for the car are already underway with complete engine swap from Ford Focus RS and another set of wider wheels, although these plans may take a time to execute. At the end of the day, we hope that you can build your car on your way and taste, but always remember why you’re doing it and keep it in that direction. Who knows, you may end up paving the way for others to follow.
