Meguiar’s MotorEx Sydney 2015

I have a thing for cars. I am not really sure what it is about… I think I like the variety and possibilities ,s and I love to see people realizing their ‘car dreams.’ I love watching shows like ‘American Pickers’ and ‘Storage wars,’ simply because someone’s junk is someone else’s treasure.

That is exactly what MotorEx was all about. These people looked at a simple car, a standard model, or even a wreck, and they saw limitless options. Love it! From older models to new ones, every car can be turned into something bigger, better, more beautiful, more colorful, and faster.


Some of these people spent over 15 years completing their dreams, getting parts from all over the world, waiting until they’v had enough money to get that one special item that would suit the car perfectly, to restore it to it’s original, or a better version of it. The same goes for bikes; but most bikes I saw were mainly flashy, new, big, and very colorful and artistic.

You could pump your car with the biggest of sub-woofers, so that every single fiber in the car vibrated if you put some music on; or you could choose to go for beauty – sleek and shiny. Work with colors and shapes to influence the aerodynamics of the car or just put in a massive powerful engine to boost your horsepower. If that wasn’t enough for you, there was always the possibility to add in some nitrogen to the mix!


To top it off, there were some amazing, famous cars from movies and TV shows. A few of my favorites: The Scooby Doo Mystery Machine, the General Lee from Dukes of Hazard,  the car from Back to the Future, and one of the Batmobiles – plus plenty more!

They even had drag racing cars on display; along with partially electric cars, plenty of Lambo’s and Ferrari’s, some big outdoor trucks; coupled with an on-the-spot spraying trailer and a full motion race simulator.

The word that any motor-head would be looking for at this point is “wowsers.”
