JDMST EOMM :: Hoodie Weather

Evo 6 being chased by a Wrx

On Saturday, members of JDM Style Tuning gathered at Docklands for their end of month meet. However, the weather was not on our side. In typical Melbourne fashion, the heavens opened and the rain just didn’t stop! That did nothing to dampen the spirits of all those that showed up and we were rewarded with a fine selection of JDM machines.

GTIR pulsar import, in fast red colour

This guy was like ‘Damn I want me some cool JDM wheels!’
Baby Godzilla’s are becoming rare. It was good to see one that had been looked after so well.

subaru libery, done up, modiffied

A tastefully modified Liberty with a large exhaust system and burnt tips to set it off.

aw11 toyota mr2

One of the greatest handling cars of its era; this Aw11 Mr2 was tough!

type r honda civic

I’m a fan of these Honda pocket rockets! This well customized EP3 was sporting a nice set of BBS shoes.

Mitsubishi Evo 7, black and full of carbon fiber

Evo’s were by far the most popular car at the JDM meet.  This example had many subtle carbon fiber add-on’s.

Levin toyota weapon

Toyota’s answer to the Intergra Type R-the AE111. A very under rated car that has a lot of tuning potential.

Toyota supra

Mark III Supra. You could tell by the sound of it that it was hiding some extra horsey’s under the bonnet.

bolte bridge

The Bolte Bridge is always a favourite for car meets and impromptu photo shoots.

Subaru sti liberty turbo

STI monster. Something a little different to your everyday Rex.

diahatsu mira, curoe

Diahatsu Cuore with nice SSR Mk2 wheels.

Evolution 5 Mitsubishi

This was the oldest and most striking Evo that turned up.

Evolution 7 Mitsubishi

The Adidas sticker sets this Evo off! High performance branding on a  high performance machine.

group shot of jdm meet

Did someone say group shot?

suby liberty

With a feel of luxury performance, these Liberty’s have the best interiors and make a great daily drive with plenty of punch.

Despite the weather this meet was huge ! I have been to car meets where it is sunny and only half as many people show up!
It was impressive to see so many enthusiastic car lovers. We here at Gripshiftslide can only hope to see more of this type of thing come 2012.
