Australia’s Most Impressive Custom Car… What a title! Any elite level car builder would love the chance to show their pride and joy on an international stage so when Meguiar’s Car Crazy gave away the opportunity to do just that the entries came rolling in. A highly respected judging panel from the motoring industry was put together to determine the best vehicle represent Australia. Cars were judged not only by build quality but also by the story surrounding the car.
With a prize as prestigious as this and value of more than $15,000, the pressure was on to narrow down the field. A weekend of deliberation saw the 4 motoring journalists and 1 representative of the motoring industry cut the contenders from of 15 to 4. Then after further discussion, a decision was reached and announced to an anxious crowd… The winner of Australia’s Most Impressive Custom Car went to Adam LeBrese and his 1978 Ford XC Coupe!
Much of Australia’s car culture is based around Bathurst and the Touring Car Race scene where the XC falcon has ra ced and won in our history, highlighting this vehicle. With so many of the parts on this car hand fabricated including, suspension, chassis, interior and undercarriage you would never find another like it.
