Driven 2013 Part 1 – UCCC

To start my coverage of Driven 2013, I figured I’d go with the UCCarClub (UCCC) display. We had 10 cars in total, covering numerous decades and makes. A big thank you goes to everyone who participated and helped us have such a great group!

While I had attended Driven in previous years, this was the first time I had actually participated and entered my own car. On Friday we arrived at around 4:30 and pulled our cars into the oval. From there, we were given our location and began working out how we would arrange the vehicles. It was after 9 when the last of us finally left for the night, after hours of positioning cars, cleaning, and taking care of other details.

The show started at 1 the next day, but by 11 we started showing up to take care of more last-minute items and to have a chance to see what was present before the crowds arrived.

The photos below were taken in a random order throughout the day, so some are from before the gates opened and others after.

Sam’s F30. Brand new. I was not a fan of the headlights and grill when I first saw the new face, but I really like them now.

Kyle’s Celica, which won Best in Show Restoration. It was a crazy weekend for Kyle; just hours before roll in the Celica was in the paint booth getting a couple of panels resprayed.

Taylor’s WRX. Taylor was actually showing with the Subaru club but he’s a UCCC member so I’m including his here.

The cars were all looking their best but we wanted to go a little step further.

Terence made sure it was apparent which display ours was, so he had a couple of banners made to put up on either end; one by my car and one by Hari’s Supra.

We even had license plates to replace our actual ones, and ensure everyone had the UCCC logo somewhere on their car. As a final touch we even had commemorative decals on our windshields.

Again, a big thank you to everyone involved as it couldn’t have been done without you.
