SOME people dismiss souped-up cars with booming sound systems as a nuisance, but for others they are works of art.
For operators of Phatt Audio Concepts they are also reaping rewards on the show circuit.
The Braeside business and its sister company Polo Bodyworks have been around for just four years, but have built a reputation as one of Australia’s most outstanding custom-car creators.
“We seem to always pick up an award or two at every show we go to, which is always a good thing,” co-owner Brett Morris said.
The latest in a long list of accolades included three awards at the Melbourne Auto Salon show.
The company won the Killer Audio Install award for its work on a Dodge Nitro, the Smooth as Silk Paint gong for its job on a Holden VT Commodore and the Best Airbrushing honour for its artwork on a Mazda RX7.
The car that turned the most heads at the Auto Salon was a Dodge Nitro, packed with enough decibel power to rock a whole neighbourhood.
The result took $250,000 worth of work carried out by three staff members working seven days a week for six months. “When you’re doing jobs like that you’re thinking, ‘Why do I keep on doing this?’,” he said. “But when you see the final product it makes all those hours worth it.”
