As seen by Matt.
Enjoyed this year a lot more and didn’t shoot as much, but still got enough to throw together a little video…hope everyone enjoys.
Disclaimer* Mauncho is drunk as fuck at the beginning of the video. It was taken 10 seconds after changing his clothes on my rear seats. Contemplated burning those seats.
So as Gill stated, I was SUPER late to Cars and Coffee due to a wicked hangover. Word of advice; $3 tequila shots are NEVER a good idea. BUT we had a busy day ahead of us and I wasn’t worried about that one meet, apart from the 190E that was there. Anyway, I met up with the boys in Aurora where we started our impromptu shoot with the air cooled guys “West side dubs”. I’m pretty sure Matt is still editing those photos, so I will leave those details to him. Next, was the Seven Automotive BBQ… Free food. Honestly, I love going to Japanese meets/shows; there is always free food. Euro scene get your shit together, seriously.
A very tastefull STI
LegitGraphics’ WRX. I love the decals on this Subaru and the overall style its going for. Probly the only bug eye I like at all.
After the Seven BBQ we headed to Meeting of Mazdas (MOM). To be honest, I don’t think we even would have had any interest in the Mazda world, if it wasn’t for Dave from StanceIsEverything. I was pretty happy we showed up, it had a wicked location and then we saw this MINT Miata. Nothing about it was out of place and the interior was on point. As you can see, I was bent over looking VERY interested in that interior.
Recently I decided to go with the fad and plastidip my car, after much trouble and 6 gallons later. It turned out to be this POS. Overall it does look better then what my car looked like before BUT I do wish I did another color. Overall I’m done with the car and ready to move on to a different chassis, 190E hopefully.
Here we are on to the last meet, the grand finale, the one I was waiting for alllllll day. The GotAss? Car wash. I really had to push the boys to go because everyone has a SO and I’m literally the only single one so I personally think they had to put the blame on me that they attended. Oh well, I was happy. (asses were to ratchet to post- Gill)
This low rider had UNREAL detail from the paint, trunk set up and even the frame of the car. I was blown away at the detail and had no idea that the low rider scene was like this.
As Gill said; we have a lot of fun at these “small” customer appreciation BBQ’s. The wide array of cars affords everyone something to love.
For me, it was this 993.
I also spent a good deal of time drooling over these 2 M cars.
Bagged widebody cars? Check.
One of the few cars that actually looks good with a big ass wing.
After Cars and Coffee and Subaru Hypermeet came the TIres23 BBQ. Year in and year out the BBQ events that local parts stores put one are my favourite. Maybe I’m just a sucker for free food. Definitely wasn’t missing the Tires23 event either. I’ve only been there 10 times or so this summer alone .
Awesome looking Prelude. Don’t see these stanced out often.
Matt recently shot this 86 for a print feature.
I see overfendered, kitted out Silvias and think, THIS IS WHATS MISSING IN MY LIFE.
Pretty sure this car won the sound off. Eardrums certainly thought so.
Thought I missed this car when he left the Subaru Hypermeet early. Luckily caught it here
Brian’s boner dissipated long enough for me to snap this pic. EF fiend.
Not much needs to be done for 1Ms to look awesome.
Previously a metallic blue. The plastidip Camo green was lookin good.
Volvo has decided to run a full factory effort in the 2014 V8 Supercars Series. They will build and design a 5.0L version for their 4.4 V8 from the XC90. Holden, Ford, Nissan, Mercedes and Volvo. Racing in cars that look like real cars. With USCR, North American DTM, DTM, the revamped WTCC, SuperGT(now with DTM spec cars), Superstars Internatianl Series, AND the V8 Supercar Series. Top tier touring and sports car racing hasn’t been this good in years.
A look back a Volvos previous racing endevours.
It has not been a good week for me. Speeding ticket, an accident in Detriot, and pulled plates (still unresolved). It was good to get my mind off of things. CSCS at Mosport. Brian was kind enough to drive.
Still lovin this MR2 we previously saw at Fitted.
After the Chrysler 300 I fender bendered (minor bumper damage), I don’t entirely hate these cars. The 8 speed auto on the other hand? Horrendous.
I have a soft spot for 4 door R32s.
Doppleganger. These weren’t the only two. There were more than Mauncho and this random dude in a black tee and camo shorts. At least 4 chose this EXACT outfit today. They all happened to be black.
Bronson, doing his best to hide the quarter damage. Commendable.
Waiting to hit the track.
Was great to see this car out and about. The booth at the Autoshow did not do it justice.
Horsepower is not needed to drift. Riley’s hardbody prooves this. KA power.
Chalk up Eurokracy 2013 as over. These are the last images we have. I think Matt saved the best for last.
We had Steve’s E30 and Mauricio’s Mk2 in our booth. If I’m being frank, I think both of these cars could have easily taken home a Eurokracy plate got their categories.
Eurokracy’s bread and butter. The plethora of VAG cars.
Fortunately the Eurokracy organizers still love outsiders.
