On the morning of the 29th, the weather that greeted us was less than perfect for the what was planned later that afternoon.

The Rocklea Showgrounds would yet again have to prove itself against hundreds of car enthusiasts for the April Downshift Meet, since March numbers were approx ~800 cars. However while rain was predicted, the meet was a go-ahead with expected numbers around 500 this time.

BBQ and DJ were popular last meet and were continued at this one as well.

The meet was taken up a notch, by inviting selected vendors such as Just Car Insurance, TruBluTint, and Fulcrum Suspensions

…getting amongst the action and crowds.

And speaking of crowds, WOW, despite the high potential for a torrential downpour, the cars just kept coming through the dates.

Charile’s MX-5 drawing a HUGE crowd, the amount of time and hard work that’s gone into it definitively not overlooked. We’ll be doing an article on this car as soon as we’re able..

The Euros making their presence felt more and more at these events, which I like to see!

Another two cars that made heads turn were Rob’s wingless R35…

And the H3KTIC widebody S15.

As usual, there are too many people to thank for putting together such a great meet…

…and these events are becoming well known for their size, but also for the quality and atmosphere they provide. Stay prepped for the next one!
