Well it was the end of the working year for the lucky-some (my self included) and I was coaxed into attending only my second Downshift meet for the year, I think even the first one I didn’t even take my own car to. But none the less, it’s quite stunning to see the exponential growth of this event. You see threads and photo’s scattered over the forums post-event, but it’s just not the same, you have to be here to really appreciate how far this has come.

Two weeks ago I was invited to a Honda only meet, what was going to be a lazy Sunday evening at home turned into a busy night of moving cars and taking a few hundred photos as the sun set over Melbourne’s docks.
Organized by a few friends and an attendance list of only 20+ cars, it was quite the surprise with over 60 cars in total!
It went from a large meet to being a small group due to the poor weather and unforeseen construction zone. This was going to be a big sixty plus OzHonda meet, plans fell through but a backup meet was quickly organized.. Read more
