Whether it was the fact it was a long weekend or the cold weather turned people off, the June IMCC Monthly Meet was somewhat of a quiet one compared to past meets even though there was still 100+ cars out on display throughout the night.
Since last month's meet there have been a few changes to the Plaza venue including upgrading of the lighting in the VIP parking area which is now lit with high output LEDs resulting in a much brighter space which everyone was thankful for.
Another benefit of having the lighting switched over to single colour LEDs is vastly improved lighting for photos which we're sure we weren't the only ones that were happy about.Once the whole complex has been converted it will be even better!
Attending the meet Saturday night were a few special guest cars if you want to call them that including Nathan Patterson's Summernats Elite 60 LOWLUX ute. An awesome looking machine that made the trip up from Albury for the weekend.
Local burnout legend Nik Frasier also brought out his blown KE30 Corolla competition car as well as his new KE20 'party car' as he calls it, also powered by a 6.0L LS as well mind you.
All prepped and ready to battle it out at Sunday's Brasher Nats event, Nik and his crew brought the cars out to do some promotion for the event and also to help us create a bit of a buzz, or should we say RUMBLE at the meet... The blown monster definitely did not disappoint!
While on the topic of LS Corollas, we also had our project car of sorts out on display this month, fresh from a bunch of upgrades from Custom Plenum Creations in Wollongong.
While she's still a fair while from being completed and cruising under her own power, it was a great opportunity to give people a first-hand look at the car and the work that's been carried out by local businesses.
We spotted quite a few cars at the meet that we'd not seen before which is always a good thing. This immaculate VL Calais was one of them, nothing over the top just a very well presented and tough sounding rig that we'd certainly love to get in front of our camera lense again for a full feature!
We're sure many of you would be familiar with Craige Lewis' 7-second Cortina 'RAD14L', well check out his new family cruiser! Craige rolled into the meet very discreetly, almost undetected thanks to a stock 6 cylinder powering this beast at the moment but we're told by Craige a stout Windsor combo is already on the cards which will produce a tad moire noise and power, not to mention AC too for those summer cruise sessions.
If you prefer things 'Low-n Slow' when it comes to cruising the USO CC Australia boys had you covered with their wicked Impalas...
We also loved the look of this clean, slammed Commodore wagon as well. A nice, clean family cruiser.
In the end the meet was another success and from everyone's feedback it was enjoyed by all. We also had another cracker night with sales of the IMCC stickers, topping our efforts from the previous meet with a total of $720 raised on Saturday night for the Beyond Blue group!
That's over $1200 raised in the past two meets to bring the total tally so far raised for the charity to $1840! That's an awesome effort from all of you and we can't say thank you enough for the support! Be sure to give yourselves a big pat on the back!
