People say variety is the spice of life. I tend to agree with them. So on that note, I decided to check out the one of the old school hotrod meets we have here in sunny Queensland on Friday evenings.

To be completely honest, I was expecting a congregation of bogans ripping skids in the carpark, but my value judgment was totally shattered. The work and money and care that goes into some of these cars is mindblowing. Some have been handed down through generations with reverence, and barely a tyre screech was heard throughout the evening, despite most of these cars’ ability to¬†absolutely¬†SHRED with their mountains of torque.. The quality of metal on display was amazing, and I could appreciate it despite being of the JDM-persuasion. Anyway on with the pics, click for larger on my flickr!

This Torana was incredible, the paint on it was absolutely mint. And check out those classic Simmons wheels – incredible width AND offset!

A great night, even if I did manage to pick up a cold. Will have to get out there and cover it again in the near future!
