Perth 2014 Hot Rod & Street Machine Spectacular Review

A big day out at the Perth 2014 Hot Rod & Street Machine Spectacular and as usual I made a special effort to check the car park of the event which provided some great shots of spectators cars. While this may sound a little strange, I’ve found spectators have great taste in their classic cars and well worth a look. Ironically, one punter expressed the same sentiment to me and even said the cars in the car park are “better” than those in the show.

Put it this way, the cars in the car park are part of the show anyway 😉 So I’ve divided the photos into car park photos and show photos.

This year’s theme seemed to be a western / outlaw setting. Staff however failed to dress the part unfortunately which would have been a nice touch (such as law enforcement officers perhaps). Though, I guess some may question why a car show needs a theme anyway…but what the heck who’s complaining.

Check the full album of photo’s from the event on the Brakehorsepower Facebook Page.
