Sydney Dragway this month played host to United We Meet, with many car clubs showing up despite the drizzling rain! Some eye-catching cars were out and about, and these are our picks for October.

1974 Volkswagen SuperBug

Dave’s Volkswagen Beetle was a 16th birthday present from his dad, Steve, and built this car as a father-son project. This particular model was a 1974 SuperBug, or also known as a 1303S, with a special aerodynamic windscreen and a MacPherson strut front end. Dave and his dad fitted a 944 rear end with matching brakes to improve the chassis and handling. Its 1.6L motor has been stroked to 1.9L and breathes through twin 40mm Dell’Orto carburettors for some old-school motive power. Its headlights came from a classic Porsche 911, while the wheels are off a more modern 996. It’s clear to see a ton of love and care has gone into this Superbug. We could go on listing the mods but it’ll take up at least 6 pages, so we’ll end it here!

Mitsubishi Legnum VR4

Black, sleek and menacing, Daniel’s Legnum VR4 wagon caught our attention when it drove past. Once we got Daniel to pop the carbon fibre bonnet, we realized this was not your standard Mitsi. It has twin TD04 turbos running on E85, and feeding those sweet fumes out the back was Daniel’s own fabricated turbo back exhaust. Making 230kw at the wheels, it runs an impressive 12.8 seconds down the quarter. Hauling it up are a set of Brembo calipers from the Lancer Evolution, paired with Bendix performance brake pads.

Mustang EcoBoost

Not loud, not garish, and we certainly did not dive out of the way when it left the meet. The new Ford Mustang is imposing, even in factory form. This model here has the Ecoboost 2.3L turbocharged inline four motor, which is good for 0-100kph under six seconds. The owner has big future plans for the car, such as a full turbo back exhaust system, intake and wheels. We are excited to see more Mustangs pop up at EOMM!

Holden Commodore VK Calais

An immaculate Holden Commodore VK Calais is a rare sight, at a meet normally dominated by Japanese imports and Euro cars. Painstakingly restored, Costa’s VK Calais has a subdued leather trimmed interior, with brand new bits used wherever possible. The old engine was swapped out for a fuel injected 5L from a VS Commodore. We love the period correct Venetian blinds on the rear window, and a set of HDT wheels with brushed metal finishing completed the whole look.

Toyota 86

Tim’s Toyota 86 strikes the perfect balance between power and looks. Equipped with a full exhaust system, including extractors, the 86 brings the noise wherever he goes. With a slick tune using ECUTek, it’s got the bite to match its bark, putting down 133kw at the wheels. Programmed for flat foot shifting, rev matching, and launch control, the Tim’s 86 will take abuse all day every day, then ask for more. Handling is sorted out by a set of XYZ coilovers, and the rear is furnished with rare Junyan tail lights and the TRD duck tail.
