Photos and Words by HighwayStar Patrick

It’s not a competition. These words are the basis and motto of Simply Clean.
It’s not a competition. Simply Clean was created with the idea that it didn’t matter what you had, ie. – ratrod, JDM, Euro, etc., but that you executed it cleanly.
It’s not a competition. These words are what compelled Simply Clean to create an event where there was no trophies; No winners or losers; But instead, a large meet where people can come together, show off the hard work that they have, and meet old and new friends.

Simply Clean 5 was held at Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach, FL for the second year in the row. Destination Daytona was kind enough to not only offer their parking spaces to this event, but also surround area parking for spectators, and their main pavilion to help house and show off many beautiful vehicles. For the event, much background planning was put into place to make sure this event ran as smoothly as it did. We at HighwayStar Garage would like to thank everyone that worked and contributed to make this event possible.

With as many cars that showed up for both show parking and spectator parking, below is only a glimpse of what was there at Simply Clean 5.

This year at the HighwayStar Garage booth, we brought out several of our big guns to display. We are all familiar with Roxanne Racekor, but Ramon’s new girl was on display for the first time since acquiring her! Also, Doritos, Ollie and Teddy brought their beautiful ladies out for display. Last, but definitely not least, Jon, our newest HighwayStar prospect, brought his beautiful NSX out to play!

Speaking of Kam, it is always wonderful to see his beautiful VIP Lexus GS on display. Kam’s Lexus always makes an impression on everyone that sees it.

But, even with all the cool cars and vehicles that came out to the event, this event is still about the friends that you make, and the people you call “family” that you can share your love and experience with….
