Yesterday marked the day “Showcased”was held. A Sydney based automotive event held and organized by the crew at The-Lowdown, and what a day it was!
On the day me and a friend decided to drive into the city CBD to have lunch in a small Japanese restaurant called Menya, who specialize in traditional Japanese noodles and ramen. And trust me it was needed as we had decided to leave my car within the CBD and walk 3.1km to the destination, and we needed as much fuel and energy we could stuff into our bodies. As we had set off for the marathon walk, the day was sunny and relatively hot and it didn’t help that we were each carrying about 3KG of camera gear on our backs, and I was also wearing 2 layers of thick clothing hahaha.
And after half an hour of walking for what felt like an eternity we finally arrived at Fox Studios where the event was held. With sore feet and tired shoulders, we were welcomed by the sound of a few modified cars racing through the carpark, making their way to the top levels. And on the way there we spotted a fairly nice Sunkist coloured old school Toyota Celica with what looked like Panasports wheels which immediately caught my attention. As we had entered the lifts to head up to the top levels of the multi-story carpark, we bumped into Justin Fox from Zen Garage who with a few of his friends, were one of many sponsors for the event. And whilst talking to him in the lifts he had told us the event was packed out, which I kinda expected and the reason why I left my car within the CBD. The doors had finally opened and it had seemed like we had stepped into a scene from the movie Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift. Ok that might be a bit of an exaggeration but it looked like it was going to be one hell of a day from the looks of it.
And before I leave you to the photos, I just want to take a few seconds and point out that I didn’t take a picture of every single car at the event, and there were a few fairly big cars that I regrettably couldn’t get around to in the end, as there was just so much to look at and capture that I didn’t know where to start hahaha. So in saying that I’m sorry if your car isn’t in the collection of images that I had captured on the day, but there were hundreds of cameras out on the day so I’m sure your car had it’s picture taken at some point during the day. Enough of that and onto the pictures we go!!!
And lastly before I end it here, I’d just like to take a minute to thank all those who were involved for organizing such an awesome day. And if your reading this I’m sure you all know who you are! I had a great time walking around capturing what I could, and until next time, take care everyone
