We had the pleasure of getting in to see all the wonderful hot rods, muscle cars, motorcycles and Aussie classics during the pre-show press launch at the Meguiar’s MotorEx yesterday afternoon. This included the press conference with the talented Chip Foose, who is this year’s celebrity attendee.

We stuck around for a few hours and snapped off a stack of shots for anyone unable to get there this year. So without further ado, CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to view 111 images from the 2013 MotorEx.

MotorEx 2012 went off in a big way over the weekend at Sydney’s Olympic Park in Homebush, NSW. Hundreds of top quality Australian show cars and street cars filled every available hall in the massive dome and the overall quality of all cars on show was impressive. Known as Australia’s premier indoor car show, Hosking Industries was there to capture the event and we’re pleased to bring you 160 images from the show in 1280-resolion which would can use as desktop wallpapers.

We’ll be bringing you a full report on the show in upcoming issues of Xtreme Holdens, Wild Aussie Choppers, Heavy Duty Hot Rods and Custom Utes magazines, so stay tuned for those! For now, enjoy the images.

01 Feb

We attend a lot of car shows. Most of the time we’re there to cover the event for one of Australia’s many excellent performance car magazines. Over the weekend we got out to two events, including the Lady Luck festival in Katoomba and Pinky’s Carpark Showdown Round 1 in Mount Pritchard, NSW Australia.

On this occasion we were out looking for potential feature cars and as a result, the coverage we captured on the day won’t see the light of day in print. That’s unfortunate for us and good news for you, because it means you get to see the photos straight away!

MotorEx 2010 in SydneyMotorEx has long been one of the biggest and most impressive indoor car shows in Australia. Sadly though, the shine had worn off the event in recent years due in part to the influence of both the former owner and the hotrod club that controlled much of what went on and how the event was laid out. Thankfully that all changed last year when MotorActive bought the show – lock, stock and barrel.

MotorActive is owned by Bruce Morrison and distributes a number of high profile product lines in Australia; including Meguiar’s, House of Kolor automotive finishes and Liqui-Moly. For years, Meguiar’s had been naming-rights sponsors of the MotorEx. So it made sense that MotorActive should take it on. With Owen Webb – one of the country’s top elite show car judges – taking the reins of the show, it returned this year with a renewed vigour and vitality that it’d been long lacking.

Walking into the expansive dome, the quality of the vehicles – as well as the quantity – was immediately apparent. For a few years past, most of the main action took place only in the front of the venue, with the rear halls consisting pretty boring car club displays of restored and classic cars. While there was always a smattering of modified cars ‘out back’, the quality drop was like falling off a cliff as you walked out of the main dome area. Not so in 2010!

This year, the quality from the front to the back of the full-sized venue was excellent with all makes and models well represented. Whether you were into the rods, muscle cars, late-model muscle, bikes and choppers or high-tech Jap’ stuff – MotorEx had you covered with some of the best examples in the country on display.

Owen Webb did an amazing job of pulling all the cars to the event and being the show’s big anniversary, organised for all past winners of the show to come back and compete against one another again. It was truly a spectacle to behold and the punters lapped it up.

So, without any more rambling; check out our 127-image gallery from MotorEx 2010. All images are 1000-pixels wide and you can click on the thumbnails to see some of our favourites at full size – or CLICK HERE to visit the full gallery.
