Cool is certainly the best word to use to describe this month's Harry's EOMM, both in terms of the weather and as usual the cars in attendance...
We kicked off June's monthly pilgrimage to Harry's with a gathering at local fabrication workshop Racemod Racecars & Components in Wollongong, where owner/operator Ryan and a few of the lads put on a sweet BBQ so we could all get a good feed ahead of the cruise north to Liverpool.
Open to anyone who wanted to come down for a feed and a chat, whether cruising to harry's or not, we saw a great group of local enthusiasts rock up, with the majority of them keen as mustard to have a feed and hit the road.
The cruise up to Harry's was plenty enjoyable as you'd imagine with a tough group of cars like these amongst the bunch...Genuine 9-second streeters, turbo, aspirated, old school and even a few newer rigs thrown in for good measure, it was a solid grouping
Trying my hardest to keep up with the lot in the little 1.1L 4-speed Corolla was a challenge at times but the little rig did well and my co-pilot even managed to get a few rolling snaps along the way... Including this shot of Daniel Nicastri's twin turbo LSX Torrie.
Arriving at the mega-center a bit later than usual, as instructed by the meet coordinators we were quite surprised to see the venue already packed to near capacity, front to back despite supposedly only being open to those attending a few minutes prior...
Even with the cold weather set in there was an abundance of awesome machines on display, including what we'd consider the largest amount of blown cars in one place outside of the Summernats! It was like there was an end of financial year sale on blowers or something; they were literally everywhere!!
Amongst the crowd we spotted quite a few local cars who had made the journey earlier that afternoon including Adam Smith's wicked black Mustang we featured a while back.
Seeing cars of this caliber being used as they should be, cruised on the regular with owners not afraid to put on decent kays is simply awesome!
The main drag was definitely tough street this month, the entry road lined with quality machines like this wicked LH. And they didn't stop cruising through either, with a steady and impressive stream of cars rolling in throughout the night including this crazy 64 Impala which wowed the crowd with it's 3-wheeling entrance...Very cool indeed!
The shear amount of cars that turned up to this months meet was amazing, one of the bigger Harry's meets we've been to by far. Not only were the main areas packed to capacity, the rear car park area which is usually full of daily drivers also had plenty of quality muscle scattered around like this trio.
No matter what your flavor of choice is, as always there was something for everyone. Parked up, cruising through or doing laps, it was a non-stop showcase.
Winding up another EOMM and heading back to the Gong with an all to familiar buzz still going, it's exciting to see the modified car scene going so strong after all the issues we've faced in the past few years.
hile there is still a lot of silly business happening around the place, we feel the greater majority of the car community has woken up and realised that the freedom to enjoy our toys drama free is in our own hands and it's up to us the keep things moving forward in a positive way.
