MotorEx – Muscle Car Marvel

by • September 15, 2014 • EventsComments (0)2017


Thirteen years ago, MotorEx was conceived as a club show. True to this heritage, the club element remains an important component of Meguiar’s MotorEx, forming the basis of the popular Muscle Car Marvel section. Each year, a select number of muscle car clubs are invited to bring along an array of classic Aussie and American iron. If it was bold and in your face, or if the factory gave it a performance personality, Muscle Car Marvel is where you found it.


The Falcon GT Club of Australia brought along a superb cross-section of iconic Aussie FoMoCo muscle.

At MotorEx Melbourne, the HSV Owners Club, Falcon GT Club of Australia, REV Classics and the VE Commodore Club all did a fantastic job to come out in force with an impressive and highly desirable line-up of vehicles. These mouth-watering displays were supported by a host of individual Muscle Car Marvel entrants who were not affiliated with any particular club.


The Falcon GT Club member Peter Rujanoski also snagged the Best Factory Muscle award with his immaculate, Starlight Blue 1970 XW GTHO


With mile-wide rear hides and 588 cubes of Jon Kasse big-block Ford squeezed between its shaved towers, it’s no wonder Simon Manigan’s ballistic XY Falcon took out the new Best Modified Muscle category

In recognition of the rise in popularity of classic Aussie and American muscle cars, two new categories were introduced for 2014; Best Factory Muscle and Best Modified Muscle. Both attracted a strong turnout, which really added to the overall impact of the already impressive FreeStyle Rides pavilion. Event Director Owen Webb was overwhelmed with the response from car owners and spectators: “These two new categories proved so popular, it’s obvious we’ll have to expand them next year.” No doubt this strong response combined with the equally-strong collection of adored machinery will ensure Muscle Car Marvel remains a Meguiar’s MotorEx drawcard for many years to come.


Although not a genuine A9X, David Xuereb went to great lengths to build his tribute exactly as Holden did, complete with floor modifications and all the attributes. David notes that many genuine A9Xs were butchered back in the day, so his replica is likely to be more faithful to factory spec than most genuine examples
