Best Presented Award

Let's Go Cruisin' implemented this award back in 2008 at our major events to recognize the blood, sweat & toil that many car enthusiasts put into preparing their favourite car for an event. We know the time, cost & effort required to detail your car to the max.

The good folks at Turtle Wax supported this ward by supplying car care products for prizes to winners. We want to thank them for their support but like many good things, they sometimes come to an end. We’d like to thank Turtle Wax for their past support and we will endeavour to secure a new sponsor of this popular award.

In the meantime, here’s the winners list from past events.

Best Presented Award Winner

Texas Hold'em 2013

First off was the presentation of the Best Presented award to Sam D’Angelo for taking out the day’s Best Presented award. Sam’s 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe is an automotive work of art. His Mustang was presented to ‘show’ standard which made it a worthy winner. Congratulations Sam.

November Cruise Night 2012

At presentation time we kicked off by announcing Steve Neal’s Reef Green ’70 Falcon GT as our pick for the Best Presented award. Steve gave us a brief history of his beautifully detailed XW. The car has been in his family since new and was restored in ’89 and has only 77,000 miles on the clock. It was flawlessly turned out and Steve picked up a bucket filled with around $200 worth of premium quality car care products.

October Cruise Night 2012

The LGC crew selected the first Best Presented award for this summer. Lucky winner of a $200 worth of car care products was Sam’s 1967 Chevy II Nova SS. 

Sam’s Grenada Gold Nova with matching interior is equipped with a highly detailed 327CI under the hood. It’s a great looking ride and was beautifully prepared for its outing, deserving its selection against lots of competition for this night’s award. 

Congratulations Sam.


March Cruise Night 2012

Alby had cruised in earlier in his very fresh '32 Ford Roadster. 

This Dearborn Deuce convertible fitted with an LT 1 Corvette motor was an excellent example of what it takes in preparation to take home the $200 worth of car care products. It was flawless. 

Thanks for bringing it along Alby.


February Cruise Night 2012

The Best Presented award was taken out by Rohan Hutson’s ’55 Chevrolet convertible. 

This orange and white beauty is hard to miss and with its rumbling big block lurking under the hood, you can’t miss it starting up either. Rohan took home a bucket filled with car care products to help keep his ‘vert in great shape.


Texas Holdem 2012

The Best Presented award was probably the toughest one we’d ever had to judge with so many great cars beautifully presented. The nod went to Ward’s Ice Blue ’66 Mustang with you guessed it, custom number plates ICE - 66. What some people will do to collect the $200+ of car care products! To collect this award against the competition at this event helps describe how well Ward’s Mustang was turned out. Congratulations.

January Cruise Night 2012

Col McQuinn took home the bucket filled with car care products when his beautifully turned out bright orange ’69 Chev Impala convertible was given the nod as Best Presented car on the night. Colin had plenty of competition as a good number of cars had been very well prepped.



Melbourne Cup Carnival & Cruise Night - November 2011

First presentation was to Grant from Frankston, tonight's Best Presented winner. Grant‘s ‘Safety Yellow’ ’32 Ford Coupe street rod was a great example of a well prepared car. Grant went home with around $200 of car care products to help keep his Coupe in prime condition.

Mid Winter Cruise 2011

The Best Presented award was then presented to Bob Opperman who had bought along his stunning 1951 Ford Victoria. This Blue and Taupe beauty attracted lookers all day. Bob proved that top quality cars such as his can get out in the winter chill.

Back to the Drive In 2011


As busy as we all were hosting this event, we did spot a number of deserving candidates for the Best Presented Award at the Dromana Drive In. Darren Pelacchi caught the judges eye as he cruised through the Drive In’s gate in his immaculate and ‘improved’ 1958 Chevrolet Corvette. This Black and Silver stunner is fitted with ’91 Corvette driveline and 18” Boyd’s to fit over the late model discs. It rides and steers with the help of coil over’s and power steering. In other words, if you’re really setting out to enjoy cruisin’ in an early ‘Vette, this is the way to go. Darren’s car was beautifully turned out and he took home a bucket filled with car care products to keep it that way. Congratulations Darren.

January Cruise Night 2011


The Best Presented award for the night was taken home to Toorak by Warren Skinner in his bright yellow 1923 T bucket. There was plenty of competition from the many well turned out rides on display but Warren’s T bucket was too hard to beat on this occasion. The bucket must look cool parked in Toorak Village amongst the Rolls, Bentleys and Porches that hang out there!

Santa Cruz 2010


There were lots of well presented cars on show at Santa Cruz 2010, but the nod went to Steve Hillmans very desirable 1972 Plymouth Barracuda. Viper red paint, late model hemi running gear pro toured styled muscle car was a standout. Steve collected a bucket filled with car care products to keep it this way. Congratulations Steve.

Mid Winter Cruise 2010


Colin McQinn cruised all the way from Mornington in his ’69 HT Monaro. This silver beauty was showing off all the attributes of its recent rebuild, with a custom interior Bayside Customs in Hastings, flawless body & paint by Exotic Kustoms in Carrum Downs, 18” rims and engine bay stuffed with an injected 355 CI ‘stroker’.
Imported back from Sth Africa, the HT was given the full rotisserie treatment before returning to the road earlier this year.

Back to the Drive In - February 2010


As is becoming the usual, it was a challenge finding just one deserving winner but eventually Michael Kibblewhite’s ’51 Chev Ute got the nod. Michael collected around $200 worth of car care products to keep his Black Ute in top shape.

Cruise Night February 2010


Craig Mc Cluskey bought his very fresh [registered earlier that morning] 1967 Chevelle Malibu along for its first outing and picked up the Best Presented award.  With a candy apple lacquer applied over black, Craig’s new wheels stood out from the many cars that challenged for this award. Selecting only one winner each event is getting tougher! Craig went home with a bucket filled with car care products to keep the Chevelle in great shape.

Texas Holdem 2010

Simon Collins not only cleaned up his candy gold and white FC Holden to take out the Best Presented Award at the 2010 Texas Hold’em Poker Cruise, he cleaned out the prize table at the Poker Games ‘Flop’ as well.

Simon’s Holden was one of many very well prepared cars that cruised into Williamstown this year. But the polished blower sitting on top of the shinning small block Chevrolet convinced the judges that Simon had put plenty of elbow grease into prepping his car for the day’s cruise. He collected a bucket filled with car care range to keep it in top condition. Only a few minutes after collecting this award, he was back at the prize table collecting more prizes when he had the winning poker hand in the Blue game.  His boot was overflowing when he headed home. Congratulations.

Cup Day Cruise 2009


There were many great cars that cruised into the Lifestyle Centre on Melbourne Cup day but it was the  beige Falcon XM sedan belonging to Scott Weir-Smith from Somerville that caught our judges eye. This ride had more to it the deeper you looked. Tucked into the engine bay was 289 Windsor, backed up with a C10. Lurking out the back is a 9''. This award is all about presentation and Scott's Falcon was flawless from bumper to bumper. Scott collected a bucket load of car care products to help him keep this beauty in top shape.
