hey all,

here some of my pics from tonight. wasnt a bad meet, though not enough jdm cars for my taste. still kinda new to photography, and found it quite difficult to take pics at night under certain lighting conditions.

Massive line up. I heard the guys at the front of the line were there 4hrs before the gates opened.

nice shots buddy, I like the one with the boot lids open.. With your logo usually people do one of two things, either make it smaller and pushed right into a corner so it's clear but doesn't take away from the photo itself, or if you are worried someone using your shots make you logo much lighter and drop it right in the middle of the shot so it couldn't be cropt out.

nice pics there, looked like a decent turnout in terms of types of cars was expecting alot of "autosalon" type cars and etc lol

if you have a tripod makes taking pics at night easier through a few different modes doesnt take long to pick up the basics though

what camera are you using?

Nice pics man. I was pretty keen on going but I couldn't wait I had to see it on Wednesday. And waiting for hours and not getting in would have not been fun

I assisted the organizers on the night, we got there at 3:30pm (in the purple Evo for those who were there)

At 3:30pm there were about 30 cars lined up already. By 4-4:30 there was a double line up back onto Reservior Rd by 5:30pm one of the drive-ins staff called in late to work because they were stuck back on the M4.

If anyone noticed we actually had the chopper fly over a few times.

The capacity of the drive-ins was 800 cars
They let in 981 cars
and aprox 180 cars were turned away.

There was people from all scenes who showed up, JDM, Sexspec, Hot Rods, Classics etc.

As far as were aware there was only 1 P plater booked on the night for being a tool once they got down towards the M4, we spoke to the police they weren't defecting anyone so long as people were doing the right thing. Some of the cars there had a long list of defects that could have been handed out.

A massive thanks to everyone who made an appearance & supported the Sydney car culture...

An even bigger thanks to out sponsors meguires, freestyle, liquid moly, fusion, hot4s, fast fours, imodify, house of kolor, motive DVD plus heaps more...

We had full police support on the night as long as you behaved which is fair in anyone's books...

There's a picture from the M7 overpass showing it was banked up to there at approx 6pm & will post it up once I get my hands on the picture...
