Just when you think things are going to quieten down a bit due to winter finally kicking in, the enthusiasts of the Illawarra switch things up and come out in droves for the June Monthly Meet.
With a solid 80+ cars in attendance, this month's meet looked to be our second largest gathering yet!
As always, the variety of different makes and models parked up was awesome and continues to put the point across that there really is something for everyone at these meets.
Throughout the night there was a steady stream of cars rocking up and rolling through the venue including plenty of previously unseen local rides as well as a few we've not seen out for a while.
Making things that little bit more special on the night, we were pumped to see local tyre fryer Nik Fraser and his crew rock up with his monster blown Corolla MELTEM on the trailer, ready to put her on display for the night.
Having crazy competition cars like this on display certainly mixes things up and helps to provide some added 'coolness' each month, keeping everyone wondering what might turn up next month...
Joining in on the fun were a few out-of-towners, making the short trip south for the night. While these meets are held to showcase the local scene, enthusiasts from all over are more than welcome to attend so long as they're on their best behavior as these guys were, respecting the venue, people and other cars to help preserve this drama free thing we have going.
Everywhere you looked there was quality, no matter what your interpretation of the word is...
From rusty relics to damn-right gorgeous show stoppers like these two stunners owned by the Carni family. Both of these amazing VWs snap necks whenever they're brought out and we couldn't be more thankful for Tina and her partner bringing them out for the night and supporting the meet. they were definitely among the crowd favs on the night!
One car that really caught out eye on the night was this gorgeous XB Coupe. With it's stunning black duco, panel work as straight as an arrow and the perfect stance over a nice set of FR Simmons, it had us having to pick our jaw up off the floor a few times... Hopefully we can line this one up for a feature shoot some time soon...
After a great night out it was smiles all around from all who attended and we're pleased to say that the positive feedback we received this month was overwhelming.
Seeing and hearing that people are enjoying their night out each month is what keeps us going, keeping us motivated as we work on preserving and promoting this awesome local scene of ours.
it's a group effort and each and everyone one of you is part of it, so you all deserve a big pat on the back!
We've got some big plans for the future, involving these Monthly Meets as well as a few other events so be sure to stay tuned to the IMCC website and Facebook page.
