Custom Cars and Coffee has always been one of the ‘must go to‘ car shows for any car enthusiast and the Sunday just passed was no exception. Jason Fuller, the founder of the Perth based event announced that Septembers meet would be the last for the year, so all and sundry knew this was going to be huge!
Gates opened at 8:30am and by 9:45am the venue had well and truly exceeded its capacity, a first for the Midvale Speed Dome, which has been home to the experience for a year now, after outgrowing its original roots of the ‘Munchies’ carpark in Fremantle.
There was a feast of all styles on the go and I mean everything could be viewed – from Aussie muscle to exotic Euros, JDM makes, hot rods and even a few cool bikes thrown into the mix. The gathering really had a bit of everything to look at and admire and show just how diverse Perth’s car scene is – exactly what FORGED magazine is all about.
I have been visiting the Custom Cars and Coffee meets since event number two, where there were no more than about ten cars parked up in the ‘Munchies‘ carpark with just a handful of owners standing around. Jason told me that he had never imagined that the event would grow so big and then keep growing steadily over the number of years it has been on.
It must be said that Jason and his small band of helpers and volunteers do an exceptional job and it his passion for modified cars that keeps him working hard and providing such a great event. People have to give credit where credit is due, so if you see Jason at the next event go and shake his hand and thank him for his efforts. Rumour is, the next event will be in March next year, just so the warmer months can be avoided.
