On the 30th of September VicDrift held the Spring 2012 Drift Attack at Calder Park. To coincide with the on track drifting Gripshiftslide.com hosted their own JDMST Show ‘n’ Shine in the main pit area. Around 100 cars were invited out to be part of the show. Many of the cars were regular JDMST veterans however there were a few new faces around.
This S14 Series 1 was my choice for the show’n’shine. Perfect fitment, stance and aero.
Love the JDM aero front bar on a series one
We even decided to throw the Win Garage daily driver into the show. Probably the most battered car out there but somehow blended in whilst randomly ending up parked next to another VR4.
Very clean R32 GTR. Its not often you see R32 GTR’s this clean anymore. Big fan of the older school ENKEI’s.
When Godzilla’s attack….
R31 + RB25DET + Big Single turbo + Panasport G7’s + Stance = So much WIN!!!
Even though it was essentially a JDMST End of Month meet there was a large variety of cars from JDM to Euro to OZ.
Spotted this dirty beauty parked away under the carport leading up the the main track. Looks like it might have even been a tow vehicle for one of the drift cars on track.
Topstage brought out a few Time Attack prepped cars as well as a clean 350Z convertible and the 240Z development car.
It is amazing to see what these guys can make for even an old school Z. Love to fit a set of overfenders like these to the MkIII Supra project.
Which to choose? FWD Circuit Warrior or RWD Sliding Legend.
Select your weapon of choice…..
A very clean DC5 Integra.
Tough S15 rockin SP1’s
Not very often you see a Proton GTi around these days. It’s a pleasant change to see some of the not so common machines coming out of the woodwork. Very neat stance.
Another clean S15 rocking SP1’s.
Very clean S2K rocking Advan’s.
Work VS-KF’s set this off nicely.
Big fan of the crazy colored wheels on white cars.
Ultimate Tofu delivery machine.
One of the cleanest Chasers I have seen in Oz.
Came equipped with grenades for when you really want to fry your tyres..
A few nice FT86’s are starting to pop up now and this one is no exception.
R Power Motorsports had there R33 GTR out on for the show. Would love to see this thing out on the track sometime.
Its not often you see a Z31 on the street let alone at a show and shine. This example is the cleanest one I have ever seen in Oz. Been to a few 300ZX meets in the past and I have still never seen a Z31 as clean as this.
Another R31 rocking old school wheels with perfect fitment.
Datto Coupe… Very rare and very clean. Hopefully see this again at the Japan Classic later this month.
Another rare car at the show an shine was this SW20 MR2.
There were a few AE86’s at the meet.
Tofu delivery vehicles as far as the eye can see…
Prelude rocking a complete sticker bombed quarter and roof racks.
I think I spot some drift damage.
This R32 is a regular at a few meets we’ve been to now. Its clean and simple. The way it should be.
Neat pair of Altezza’s.
BMW E30 with projector headlights, neat stance and roof racks. Again another rarity at these meets.
Heads or Tails?
L Plater rolling in a very clean DC2 rocking BBS wheels.
Track ready MX5
Woodgrain for the Win.
Another Track influenced MX5.
These wheels set the Gloria off just perfectly.
This JZA80 was perfection. The level of detail was impeccable.
Check out the engine bay.
We can only assume a custom air box will make its way in here soon…
VIVA Garage R32 Drift machine sitting pretty in the pit area.
Overall it was a great turn out and the action on the track was awesome. Hopefully sometime next year we can have the Win Garage drift car ready to enter one of these events.
