The Nadi-based Street Demons Car Club hosted an inaugural car show for a charitable cause at the Nadi Muslim College on Saturday.

The event went beyond expectations attracting 40 cars. It raised close to $1000 that will be handed to the St Minas Children’s Home in Martintar, Nadi.

Club president Sharoof Shah said this was one way they could give back to the community especially during the festive season.

“This is the first event we have hosted in the west and the takings from the event will directly be given to St Mina Children’s Home for charity,” Mr Shah said.

He also added they attracted some car owners from Suva.

“I am trying to bond all of the car owners in the west, nationwide and abroad together for charity event; basically it’s like a reunion event.

“Our heart-full appreciation goes to major sponsor Chicken Express CEO Ashwin Sharma, not forgetting NZ Fijian Car Club, Satellite Rentals, AIMS Rentals, and Paddys.”

Among these there was sports car enthusiast Edwin Nair, displaying his Toyota Celica GT which he acquired in 2010.

“We need more events like this in the west as this is a good venture where we all come together to be part of this worthy cause in assisting St Mina Children’s Home,” he said.

Mr Nair said he had spent about $35,000 converting the standard car by upgrading its engine, new paint, and lights.

“This is better way to show what we have invested in the car rather than doing nuisance on the streets.”

He is an ardent competitor at the Fiji Car Club drag racing at the Nanuku Resort Airstrip, Pacific Harbour.
