Meguiar’s MotorEx 2014 Melbourne Coverage
For the first time in its history, Meguiar’s MotorEx made its debut at Melbourne Showgrounds for 2014.
Over the weekend of the 19th and 20th of July, MotorEx drew a record-smashing crowd of over 28,000 Melbournites who were keen to see one of Australia’s biggest automotive events much closer to home.
Spread over 3 Pavilions and an outdoor display; MotorEx provided enough content for visitors to explore over the entire weekend.
Spread among the show was a complex variety of vehicles on display, some cars on display included: burnout, pro-comp, street, exotic and custom build cars.
And boy, was it a good show!
I would like to personally thank Motoractive and Meguiar’s for using Cad Photography as their official photographer for the weekend. It was tight meeting their hourly deadlines but we made it.
I was definitely glad to come home late Sunday night to crash on the couch and watch Fast and Furious (I’m sure I wasn’t the only one that did).
Excluding the photos below, the rest you will find over at the MotorEx websites or Facebook page.
Strugglin Wagon and the other burnout cars on display drew a huge crowd.
MPW‘s NOSHOW reveal — a highlight of the show was the unveiling of the Freestyle Rides that drew a overwhelming crowd.
All the way from Queensland, In Envy was a very strong contender.
FATRX3 Mazda RX3 amazed the crowd as the lovely freestyle rides models pulled the covers.
This BEAST was fitted with a Jaguar V12 Engine! Hows that for different!?
Traders had a huge presence at MotorEx, particularly over in the Performance Garage pavilion where traders showcased some astonishing cars and products.
Liqui-Moly Ferrari dazzled the crowd as the team gave the accelerator a few taps.
Christopher Groves’ REDVE8 VE Coupe 60 Replica that was representing BBOSS Australia, an amazing car which I have shot before. Congratulations mate.
Of course a mention must be made to Holden who had their jaw-dropping concept vehicles on display including the Holden Efijy and the Couple 60. The attention to detail and level of workmanship on these cars is astounding. As a staff-photographer I was able to get right up and close to the cars. Simply amazing.
The Dyno was going off all day, in particular this Ford Falcon YIA10W finished its run with the turbo smoking.
And how could we forget the lovely models and showgirls that were around supporting the whole event! Thanks ladies.

Trip to 2011’s Avalon Air Show in Melbourne – Photographs
I made a trip with a few friends to visit the Avalon Air Show 2011, in Melbourne on Friday 4th of March. Sadly, upon waking up we all saw the dreaded grey clouds covering the entire sky. The forecast was terrible: rain, black clouds, general unpleasantness but we all manned up and soldiered on and drove the long drive to Western Melbourne to the Air Show…
Upon reflection, coming on the worst day of the week (weather wise) was a fantastic idea, as there was essentially no effort to get to the front of the run way to get a great view of the live air action. When we looked at other peoples photo’s from that weekend we were shocked to see how much more busy it was. If you’re going for the spectacle of the live air show and acrobatics then definitely go on the potentially wettest day of the week. Perhaps if you would have preferred spending your day browsing through the show tents and displays among the large show grounds, it might be more ideal for one of the nicer days. Either way, just remember to bring a jacket because it got so cold.
