Thousands of cars rolled in to Exhibition Park and, in typical MCM fashion, there was a huge diversity in makes, models and origins.

This turbocharged Suzuki Mighty Boy was definitely a stand out, how could you not love this adorable thing?

The MCM guys also brought down some of their most iconic cars from the show. Including “Mod Max” a LS swapped off-road Nissan Silvia S15 and, one of their most quirky builds, “Wasaabi”. A ‘JDM’ inspired Saab 900 Turbo (based on a $3k 'budget turbo' challenge).

The event had an amazing atmosphere and was a great opportunity to meet new people as well as see a magnificent range of cars. It was quite a surreal to have such buzz in normally small-time Canberra.
