Good Times at East Coast Cruise 2003: West Gosford to Sydney

East Coast Cruise 2003 was the first minitruck cruise I attended in November 2003. Little did I know that this event was the start of my lifelong minitruck obsession.

As soon as we arrived at the Chopper Shop in West Gosford it was like a kid in a candy shop, not knowing where to look because there were so many cool rides parked up.

East Coast Cruise

It’s the type of show that brings people together from the edges of Australia. So, a bunch of folks from Victoria and other parts of Aus decided to hit the road and spend the weekend hanging out with their mates who are equally obsessed with the MiniTruckin’ lifestyle. Picture this: cool trucks, good vibes, and a whole lot of passion = good times!

Everyone met at The Chopper Shop in West Gosford in the morning and we all got to meet each other and hang out for a while. This was also my introduction to the DW Customs and Defect Wars guys. After lunch, we all rolled out and hit the road down to Sydney.

A huge amount of custom minitrucks and other modified cars showed up for the event which made the easy choice for East Coast Cruise to become an annual show.
