THE modified car community gathered in Ryde on Sunday ­— to bid farewell to Michaela Logan, who died in a crash in Arreton in January.

In spite of the stormy weather, more than 100 dedicated individuals, and a legion of modified cars, amassed at Tesco Extra for the occasion ­— organised by Michaela's brother, Tom Logan, and Facebook car group, Wight Modified Family.

The 19-year-old, of Carisbrooke Road, Newport, was driving a Ford Fiesta when she crashed at Hale Common.

Paying tribute to Michaela, her family previously said: "With a smile that lit any room, she leaves an irreplaceable void in the lives of those who loved her.”

Adorning their cars with stickers of varying colour, depicting the letter 'M' flanked by wings and tipped with a halo, gatherers paid their respects, and the turnout was such that Isle of Wight Police were in attendance.

All money raised from the night went to Michaela's favourite charity, Wight Brainy Bunch.

In a post on Facebook, Maxine Emma Jackson said: "Loved being a part of this very special occasion. Thank you, Tom Logan, for asking us to be part of it ­— rest in peace, M."

Adam Harrison posted: "An outstanding turn out by everybody, and a truly memorable meet. A touching tribute to Michaela ­— sleep well, Pebs."
