We wanted to mark the second birthday of DownshiftAus with a grand celebration of close friends and sweet rides, and so the Downshift Invitational was born. Thanks to all for attending, we had a great day, so on with the pics!

When Tom rolled in with his slammed EG to our first meet spot at BP Coomera, jaws dropped. One of the lowest street-driven cars I’ve seen at the meets.

No shortage of EG Civics, but I just never get sick of looking at them.. The FFamily guys making a strong showing:

Emilio’s EG with genuine OEM hood bra, and rare-as-hen’s-teeth¬†front lip, which is actually a first-mould item. The only one in Aus?

We rolled north on the freeway, and I got the chance to hang out of Rory’s GT for some rolling shots. Have tried a few different edits here, let me know your thoughts guys! Lets kick off with one of my favourites, Alex’s EGg:

We then rolled into Morayfield BP, where heads were turned, especially by Chuey’s BNR34 GTR on 19″ TE37s, and more tasty bits than a meal at Sunnybank (can you say Z-tune guards?). These 2 riders were certainly not immune, despite belonging to a different camp…

JustDave was kind enough to let me quickly check out the new Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS II. Check out the compression in these shots:
