WA Hot Rod & Street Machine Spectacular is a wrap and I have a bunch of people I’d like to recognise that absolutely pulled together and made it a dream job all weekend.
Firstly and most importantly Samantha. You are a precious and rare gift. Your organisation, time management, communication and attention to detail is enviable. I wish I could be 1/2 as good at anything as you are at everything. The Mavens will never understand the effort you put in to running just that portion of your immense portfolio.
Wild Kat Photography, joydrive, Brad Miskiewicz and John Harney, thank you for your support, attention, skill and time over the entire weekend.
Boris Viskovic, you are so helpful and accomodating I am grateful for your guidance during the lead up to and during the show.
To my two panels of experts; “Bespoke Bikes with Bridget” Tony Wong, Lewis Cromey, Durbz, Micheal ‘Pyro’ Hollister, Ben from Rogue Motorcycles. And to the “Getting Judgy” Hot Rod Show Judges Chris Pace, Nathan Knight, Mary Eagle-Frith, Jasmine Green and Chris Bitmead, your insight and experience led to insightful discussions which I hope the audience found some value in. Hopefully this segment can become a regular feature at the show, just because I enjoyed it and learned so much.
The committee of WA Hot Rod Promotions, each and every one of you carried an enormous load into this weekend and there are not enough “thanks” that can be given to repay your efforts.
To the sponsors of Miss Koolsville & Westcoast Hot Rod Maven; Wild Kat Apparel, Saran Pike Beauty, Deluxe Creations and Designs, Cat & Moon Alchemy - the Collective, Curvique Vintage, Retro Metro, Annie's Vintage Wonderland and Pinups of Australia, we would not have been able to showcase these wonderful ladies without your assistance. Also Miss MonMon the most extraordinary stage-mum and the ever graceful and charming Bonnie Biscotti, thank you for your help herding cats over the weekend. My flawless green velvet star encrusted dress was provided by Fluro Sugar.
To the Rosie Button Photography crew, you brought out the absolute best side of me this weekend, transforming me from handsome toad into the best version of myself, thank you!
I need to recognise Corse Motorcycles and Auto Classic BMW also for lending me covers for the debut vehicles, you can’t really debut if everyone can see them 🙊 and I am eternally grateful to you for digging these out at short extremely notice for me Friday morning.
Thank you also Stu Parris, Alan Smart and Richard Borozdin, thank you for your time and allowing me to share your stories.
Special thanks goes to Richie Howlett for just being an absolute Pro, carrying the show all weekend and allowing me the time I needed for all of the ‘special projects’ I was chopping away at. You’re a rock star! Especially when my timing was 18° re****ed.
To all of the exhibitors, vendors and public that I spoke to over the weekend and stopped to offer me kind words; you will never know how deeply moved I am by your support, it means the world to me.
Today was a blast, we are on again at Claremont Showgrounds tomorrow.
Pop it in your calendar now, set a reminder for 9am.

Eeep! I shot with Rosie late last year, she captured incredible photos of Ebony (my greyhound) and I. I am thrilled to hear she’s going to be at the Hot Rod Show again this year, her vintage photography experience is incomparable.

Popped past the ‘Plex last night to show this promising young lady around and had her jump in the booth for a quick sound check.
Were you in the crowd last night? What did you think of this accomplished young racer on 🎤 mic?
I may be biased, but I think she sounded terrific during her interview with our in-house commentator Sean McCabe!

That damn 🐈⬛
The 🐈⬛ is out of the 💼
It’s Bridget Bell and I am thrilled to announce that I will be your host at this year’s WestCoast Hot Rod Maven showcase at The WA Hot Rod and Street Machine Spectacular!
I am a self-confessed pageant addict. I can not tell you how many I have entered. My modelling career started as a pre-teen and I have dabbled in commercial modelling and promotion work throughout my entire adult life. The flexibility has been fantastic for supplementing my income, with the added perk of providing exclusive backstage experiences that I would never have dreamed of accessing otherwise. I mean, who gets to do cool stuff like this every weekend?
That is why I just love a good pageant; where the playing field is fair and the ladies get to celebrate their individuality in a wholesome setting.
For every pageant I have competed in, I have found a new network connection, a new friend and typically my next gig.
Like when I entered Miss Koolsville in 2019 I was just a light vehicle mechanic. Now look at me; stepping into these gorgeous kitten heels and introducing the lovely ladies of Westcoast Hot Rod Maven to you.
We welcome Bridget Bell as our host for 2022 ✨☺️
Entries are open now, email [email protected] for an application. Entries close Friday 21st October.
Where my girls at? Honestly the best fun and whole weekend of opportunity.
Surprise! Applications are NOW OPEN!
The Westcoast Hot Rod Maven Showcase is part of the WA Hot Rod & Street Machine Spectacular, November 26th & 27th at Claremont Showgrounds.
We have some amazing prizes lined up including sparkling trophies sponsored by Pinups of Australia and a special photoshoot lined up for our lucky entrants. A weekend jam packed with opportunities, fun and friendships.
Reminder, you do not need to be a pinup, performer or have experience on a stage, this showcase is open to all experience levels and does not require a routine for each round (of course if you would like to do this, you are welcome to), we have lovely and well known supports in place to help answer any stage questions you may have, our biggest aim is for you to HAVE FUN!
To apply, please email [email protected] for an application :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me also.
Entries close 7pm Friday October 21st :)
