Event Coverage: Last Minute Wax – Part 1

Near the end of 2014, We at Auto Fiend were given the opportunity to be involved in a static car show to be held during the Just Car Insurance VicDrift – Drift X.

The event was named Last Minute Wax and was presented by Zeroclearance.com and supported by a few other companies as well as us, here at Auto Fiend. We were also fortunate enough to have our photo used for the official event poster.

A huge variety of cars rocked up to the show, from modern Japanese machines.

To older European marque’s.

With some very tidy fitment to boot. Ferrari Center caps just set these wheels off.

Some friends rolled up in matching cars.

_MG_7983

Some shared platforms but different models, like these two JZX100 toyota’s, but in the form of a Chaser (Black) and a Mark 2 (White).

_MG_7979

Two similar yet quite different cars. This one was very clean and seemed to be aimed at street use.

Whereas the Mark 2 was more suited to Drift duties, whilst retaining its street registration.

Street cars were definitely the staple of the event.

_MG_7987

As shown by this clean R34.

_MG_7990

And equally clean S13 (you may recognise this car from other event coverage).

There is a lot to be said for keeping your daily tidy and usable.

_MG_8001

It is not overly common to see an E36 M3 BMW at a show like this as they are either under covers in garage’s or out on the track.

_MG_8007

The humble KE70 Corolla has a tough life, But they don’t require much to get them looking the business.

_MG_8008

Some rear guard work helps a treat too, allowing the fitment of substantially wider and deeper wheels to be used (The Idlers reference is spot on too).

_MG_8020

This JZA80 needs no introduction, a very understated car, given how vibrant the owner is.

_MG_8019

What an eclectic mix.

_MG_8016

Some *E7* Corolla’s are in much better condition than others, It is a refreshing change to see someone put so much time and effort into the maintenance and appearance of their old rolla, so often they are abused and seen as disposable.

_MG_8012

Big props go out to MR DPB for maintaining and preparing such a show quality Corolla. And that engine, Beautiful.

_MG_8040

You can probably guess what this EK Civic is all about, and the well executed bonnet mural is a bit of a give away. Very tidy, B-Series, Rays TE37V wheel choice is on point and car is in generally great condition, So simple.

Well that is all for this post, Check back soon for Part 2 with the rest of the photos from the show.
