Peter Fitzpatrick's TRILOGY Wins Car Of The Decade at MotorEx 21

Aussie street machining legend Peter Fitzpatrick has made waves once again with TRILOGY, taking home the coveted Car Of The Decade Award for the second time in MotorEx history.

Fitzy’s FC is one of the most decorated cars in the street machining sport and has taken out just about every award you can think of in the thirty-plus years its been on the circuit. Through its many iterations, the FC has claimed stake to six Street Machine Summernats Grand Champion titles, Meguiar’s Superstars Best Of Breed and a whole host of bling from shows around the country.

Its latest triumph came at MotorEx 21, where it was inducted into the Show Car Hall of Fame and awarded the prestigious Car Of The Decade - the second time for Fitzy and his FC after winning it back in 2010.

“I actually got pretty emotional winning this one. I did it once before, and I’d never expect to do it again. When it was announced it really hit me, it just means so much to us,” Fitzy said after claiming the trophy on Sunday afternoon.

A roaring success, the all new Show Car Hall Of Fame Hall of Fame came together to celebrate the incredible achievement of some of the must influential builds Australia has ever seen. 

It was a true honour to walk through this hall and spot some of the cars that have really influenced the wider car scene, from Les Lawry’s winning 1930 Ford Victoria at the inaugural MotorEx in 2003, Mark Tarabay’s 20B rotary S15 ‘SUBLIME’, Mick Fabar’s carbon-neutral ‘ZERO’D’, and all the way up to last years Meguiar’s Superstars winner - it was certainly special to see all these cars together.

To win this award once is impressive, but to win it twice is a testament to the quality of the FC. Fitzy’s passion for the sport of street machining world and all the hard and work and long nights home in the shed have more than paid off, cementing himself once again as a true legend.
