In the last post we left the Docklands pre-meet to head towards Monash University. Traffic was much heavier than we expected and the west-siders slowly trickled in instead of arriving together. There were already a number of people there and it only meant there was less of a queue to get a parking spot.  The cars continued to slowly roll in as everyone caught up with their old friends, made some new ones and just checked out the cars in general. The sausage sizzle table was already set up when we arrived with (Nakama)Vu’s beautiful and pregnant wife Bel managing the sizzle alongside his sister in law Cindy.


The benefit of a private meet where everyone who attended was a familiar face, in the 3 hours we were there between 5pm – 8pm, not a single person attempted to hoon or draw attention to themselves by revving.  Such responsible behaviour made it a lot more encouraging that everyone took what we preached seriously in order to allow us to possibly put together another one in the future.  The private setting of the meet made the atmosphere feel more like a social gathering than a car meet. The cars faded into the backdrop and everyone spent their time catching up with friends instead.


At that ride height, I wonder if he really does go “aah” 24-7. Custom repainted in midnight purple and freshly resprayed wheels!


There was also another custom wide-bodied 2Jz swapped Altezza that was present that night who unfortunately left early and we were unable to grab any pictures of.


The old Toyotas that mattered, the Celica had a miniature replica of his car sitting on his roof for the night.


Kenny’s freshly sleepy eyed FD Rx7 alongside Vu’s and Van’s 86s.

There was no shortage of S2000s at the meet and much like the Japanese, each portrayed their own individual style through the way they modified their cars. We had stanced S2000s, stock bodied S2000s with nice wheels and simple bolt ons to Billie’s S2000 dressed in a Voltex bumper and GT Wing!

Nissan’s were out in force at this meet with a nice variety from old to new. These two freshly restored 240z’s drew admirers through the night, only to be outshone by the pack of 180s that invaded later in the night!

This was the first time that Peter’s s14 has been driven on the street in years!


The pack of 180sxs that took over the meet, a number of them rarely ever seeing any street time. Amongst them was Athids track car, stripped interior, built motor and a roll cage that was painted white! The thing looked insanely menacing even just parked!

Similar to the S2000s, the S15s were represented by very different styles, each looking spectacular in their own way.

and what Nissan family would be complete without some BNRs? This particular yellow one belonged to Aaron. The car has fitted some Alcon brakes, CAMS approved roll cage and RE30s. He mentioned that it would be getting a makeover both inside and out by the end of this year and I cannot wait to see what lies in store.

No Japanese meet would be complete if we did not have some Subarus.

This is what many of the people that left early missed. An extremely rare manual NSX showed up later in the night! Sitting on RE30s and fresh Recaro seats, the interior condition looked really new for its age!

These 2 German metals blended in well with the crowd, modified properly and tastefully.


This is Paul’s (PT works) R33 GTR Vspec! In the background you also see Vu, Bel and Cindy packing up the sausage sizzle, tables and chairs. So a great thank you to the few of them who did a large majority of the heavy lifting to make this event turn out the way it did.


Al captures and his liberty Sti.

Most importantly, we have to especially thank Monash University and the Monash RC drift club for granting us use of their location and for making this all possible.

I hope you enjoyed the coverage of this private meet! Do share the post if you liked what you saw !
