The reach of Meguiar’s MotorEx extends far beyond Australia’s borders. And rightly so, given the event represents the very best of the Australian automotive enthusiast culture.
This years’ Meguiar’s MotorEx is certainly no different and in conjunction with exhibitor Mal Wood Automotive, the team are proud to announce that U.S industry heavyweights, Cherielynn Westrich and Ross McCombs will be bringing their experience, celebrity and industry knowledge for an exclusive down under Meguiar’s MotorEx experience.
If the name Cherielynn Westrich rings a bell, it’s probably from her 10-odd years on the hit TV show Overhaulin’. Cherielynn’s role was car builder on the A-Team, working alongside the one and only Chip Foose. Cherielynn has pedigree, having built over 60 cars on the incredibly popular car restoration show. Her fame doesn’t end there, appearing as fabricator and builder on shows such as, Rock My RV with Brett Michaels and on Detroit Muscle with Factory Five building a racing Cobra on the ‘All Girls’ build. When not behind the camera, the passion remains, with Cherielynn working in her own workshop, ‘Mavin Associated’ in Orange California, building and restoring muscle cars and hot rods.
Cherielynn is no stranger to Australia, having spent considerable time on the east coast over the years visiting friends and enjoying the beach culture, but this will be her first time experiencing Meguiar’s MotorEx.
“After seeing the hard work and dedication on Overhaulin’ and Foose Design you become appreciative of hard work and talent on any level. I know there are some excellent builders in Australia and that Meguiar’s MotorEx is a showcase for that talent. I’ve had the pleasure of working with a few Aussie’s here in the US and I’m looking forward to seeing new things,” said Cherielynn.
For industry specialist and former race-car driver Ross McCombs, the aftermarket world is in his blood. Ross turned Quick Time Performance from start-up into the world’s largest manufacturer of steel bellhousings. Ross is also Senior Design Engineer at Holley Performance Products, and is intimately involved with the latest and greatest technologies and designs from the world’s premier automotive aftermarket company.
“We appreciated the invite by Mal Wood Automotive and Meguiar’s MotorEx and will be honoured to come out and be part of what I have heard is the biggest show of its kind in Australia. I’m looking forward to that crazy Aussie automotive spirit,” said Ross.
Cherielynn and Ross will be based on the Mal Wood Automotive stand engaging with fans from across the country, as well as offering their wisdom and insight. In between times, they will be exploring an Australian automotive showcase like no other.
It will be a massive weekend, with 25,000 thousand fans set to pour into Sydney Olympic Park. The wildest, never-before-seen block-buster builds will be unveiled during Saturday morning’s House of Kolor Inauguration. Get your horsepower fix in the Liqui-Moly Performance Garage, then marvel at Meguiar’s Superstars – Australia’s biggest gathering of super elite machinery.
For 2017, Muscle Car Marvel is featuring a huge celebration of Camaro’s 50th birthday and the 60th anniversary of the legendary 1957 Chevrolet. Combined this with gourmet food vendors, the best of the aftermarket industry and hundreds of the country’s best cars, Meguiar’s MotorEx is the car crazy experience.
