BOOSTED NIGHTS: When the city sleeps engines roar
Boosted nights, aptly christened so by a friend, may at first seem like a strange phenomenon to the non-car enthusiast. I mean, how do you boost a night? Alcohol? Drugs? Witchcraft? Night running? The list is endless. However to the car lover, the word “BOOSTED” rings a totally different bell.
Every first Tuesday of the month, when the city sleeps, engines roar. Nairobi based car enthusiasts head over to the Garden city mall along Thika road for a car meet.
Whether JDM, German or American, it is an open showcase of fast beautiful cars. The no discrimination policy extends to all car owners and also to those aspiring to own cars.
Organized by Petrol-Holics Anonymous (P.A), a 200 strong crop of car lovers and all things automotive, Garden city mall boosted nights offer car enthusiasts an opportunity to meet and bond with other car lovers, stare at some beautiful and pretty fast machines, expand your knowledge about cars and just get to know more about the car scene in the country.

Unlike Time Trial events where we get to see the gladiator side of the cars and drivers, the Pizza meet by P.A is more of the car sitting pretty and may be a possibility of some polite runs where the boosted machines get to flex a little.
On showcase this past Tuesday, was an awesome line up. Fuji heavy industries had the most representation as always for the SUBIENATION
with the N14 WRX STi’s, one being a spec C, the GF8 STi, the GC8, the 2015 WRX S4, N10’s and the Fozzys.

The Evo’s and Colt Rs repped Mitsubishi.
A blue VW Scirocco stole the show but was evidently still home sick rocking UK plates.
Team Toyo were not left out as a 2010 Mark X flexed with its lovely custom lights amid its predecessors.

A Starlet GT managed to camouflage next to the similarly colored pocket rockets.

Unfortunately, Nissans were not represented this time but we hope to see them beautiful GTR asses next month.
A huge thrill to attend, the Garden City Pizza meet will give you lots of motivation to work towards getting that dream performance car and believe me you will have lots of fun since you will get an up close look at the breath-taking machines.
Be sure to see you there on Tuesday, 1st August 2017. Show up for three or more meets and be a permanent member of the P.A family.
