PHOTO COVERAGE :: THE-LOWDOWN.com 1st Birthday At Bodyform

By on Mar 31, 2011 in MOTOR WORK | 3 comments

THE-LOWDOWN.com has only came up in the import scene for only a year and from hearing about it in school when it was first established till now, it has dramatically escalated from the point of being one of the many well-known car sites in Sydney. The location for their birthday was at none other than at Bodyform, a workshop that specialise in mainly custom fabrication and body kits. However, they also branch in other modifying areas such as engine work. This would have to easily be one of the best meetups in a while, even though there were light showers it didn’t stop a strong turnout for the support. Walking around it was great to come together, feel comfortable, and talk friendly to anyone there about what they’ve poured all their money into. The quality of cars there for me stepped up another notch in the modifying scene in Sydney. One outstanding car that caught my eye...

One of my memorable motoring events would have to be the Gymkhana Invitational held last year at Irwindale. Though the event was really a “Ken Block” modified event, with loud bangs, explosions, and everything catering to the general public, I still enjoyed the event. With some talk here and there, Thunder Drift decided to host gymkhana events for 2011 season. Today marked TD’s first gymkhana event and for its first go, everyone had a blast. I usually stroll along to Thunder Hill around noon as my Sunday morning’s are busy. However, I made the hour and a half trip from Sacramento to Willows to witness the usual epicness. Took the S14 for a spin as I haven’t been driving it around much. It was a bumpy drive, but it settled down when cruising the highway. I arrived at Thunder Hill while the cars were finishing up the morning run. The turnout was pretty good...

Such a nice chassis. Japanese cars are legit, but I sure do love some Euro from time to time. Here’s a little parking lot snap. :. Michael Cabuco [fblike]

AUTO SNAP :: Sunset Smoke Trails

Since we output tons of pro photos, sometimes we’re overloaded with content for a single post. Some photos don’t make the cut, not because they weren’t clean shots, but because we avoid overloading our readers. To keep this photo blog rolling, we’ll be posting up photos from the Autoshooters Archive. We’ll start it off with a neat photo of Al leaving smoke trails all over our beloved Thunder Hill. :.
