With the cooler weather now upon us, there's usually no better place to be on a cold night than at home on the couch with the heater cranked... Unless of course you're a car enthusiasts and there's a meet on somewhere...
They say variety is the spice of life and that's exactly what we got at last night's Monthly Meet with another awesome turnout of 80+ cars from almost every corner of the car scene.
Those who attended were treated to a smorgasbord of fine automobiles and the same great enthusiast atmosphere these meets have become well known for.
As usual we had plenty of out of town visitors dropping by, mixing it up with the local talent and enjoying the night out amongst like-minded individuals
No matter what manufacturer, badge, scene or crowd you follow, everyone and every kind of car is welcomed and although you may see separation and segregation at other car meets, that's definitely not the case here. We're all enthusiasts sharing the same passion.
There was plenty of new faces and fenders out and about this month which was great to see, proving that the word is getting out there and we're doing things right.
The amount of positive feedback we've been receiving is awesome and hearing people say that they can't wait for the next meet and that they're going to invite more of their friends along next time shows just how much not only our local area but the scene as a whole has been waiting for something like this to come about.
Having the support from the local area command is a great thing also, showing that unlike what many people would have you think, modified car enthusiasts and authorities can get along and work together given the right circumstances and most importantly with the right attitudes. Having regular patrols and interaction with car owners is always seen as a big positive for these gatherings.
The quality of cars that are showing up each month is just phenomenal; a great showcase for the talented car builders, workshops and individuals that make it all happen.
To have high profile machines like Dean Crook's recently finished Pro Tourer Mazda RX3 and Craig Lewis' 7-second twin turbo Cortina roll in certainly gets people excited and keeps them coming back each month to see what other crazy cars are going to rock up.
Cars like Patrick Scullino's crazy blown 1200 ute which stopped by on his way home from another show at Picton earlier in the day. Although not a street car, hearing this animal start up and roll through the car park was just insane and the crowd loved it!
And it's not even just cars either. Often there's a few nice bikes mixed in amongst the group and you know what, why not...?
Modified bike owners are just as passionate about their rides and when they're as clean and cool as Joel's V-Rod here, they fit right in.
In the end it was another great night out and like everyone else, we now can't wait 'till next months meet. Until then though, head over to the Event Gallery page HERE and check out some more snaps from Saturday night.
