Growing up I was always surrounded by cars, most of them BMW’s of the classic variety such as 2002’s, e3’s and e9’s. I feel these earlier BMW’s and cars like the E24 6 series have so much character, it’s hard not to love them! This probably was a key reason behind why the second word I ever spoke was “car”.
Fast forward to early 2004 (at age 15), I decided I wanted a restoration project; something fun, cheap and simple.
Every now and then we meet people in our lives that amaze us. People with motivation and determination; people who are driven. Aaron, who some of you may know as Maximus, is one of those people.
Last week, the minitruck scene in Australia had one of the biggest annual shows of the year, and the oldest on going show to date, the East Coast Cruise. People travel from across the country to attend. Little did they know that Aaron had a surprise in store for the show.
Much like a heart attack, drift attack grips the being of Victorian Drifters and squeezes until all circulation is cut off. Round 2 of Vic Drifts Drift Attack was held at Calder Park, a course that has been off limits for years due to politics with the owners of the track. Drifting used to be a monthly occurrence here, but was closed down due to a decision by management.

When Daniel asked me to do a write up on my build we both agreed that the usual parts list just wasn’t going to cut it. Sure I could rattle of the parts that make this vehicle functional but this build is more than that and I will try and give you an insight into my life and how this build became what you see before you.
Most people would think that the capital of Australia is Sydney. Guess what….
It isn’t. Canberra is the heart of the Australian Capital Territory, where all the politicians gather to scream at each other like children in kindergarden. I’m not exaggerating, google it.
The minitruck scene in Australia is somewhat smaller then that of America, but none the less there are some quality builders here who are willing to put in the hours of labour for what they love.
