On Sunday March 25, Northwest Nissans held Nissan Fest at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. This event was the first of its kind for both entities and it was without a doubt a success. The event replaced a meet NWN had held in previous years at another location where turnout exceeded capacity. The track handled the drifting event with NWN help and NWmotiv.com handled the car show aspect. Did I mention the whole event was FREE to spectators?
One of our missions here at nw-built is to provide the Pacific Northwest with an outlet where cars and people of all different types and color can join together in one place – in essence, bringing to light the diversity of our region. Last year we took it upon ourselves to fulfill that mission by hosting an event at Golden Gardens in Seattle, WA. It was a huge success being our first big event, and welcomed over 400 cars. Most importantly it showed that people and cars of all types can get together without all of the e-thuggery/flaming, to have a great time and enjoy the Pacific Northwest automotive scene & atmosphere.

In late January, a bunch of Nissans parked behind a building in the rain.
On January 28th, a bunch of local car enthusiasts got together at the local Triple XXX Rootbeer in Issaquah. Triple XXX has been well known for hosting all sorts of car meets – from Muscles, to Hot Rods, to Imports. Most importantly, it’s a great place to get together because of the great food and large venue to accommodate lots of cars.

2011 was an amazing year for me, both personally and automotive related. I had ups and downs, but in the end I reflect and realize how much I succeeded as a photographer, entrepreneur, and most importantly as a human being.
nw-built also had an event filled year. 2011 was its first full year, which meant there were many instances of trial and error throughout the journey. We had our first big events, invested time and effort into the ever growing Social Media, and most of all created the foundation for our fans and supporters from which we now continue to build upon.

On December 17th, 2011, I got to attend PNW Nissan and Infiniti‘s Winter Meet. Everyone met up at Burnstead in Redmond, WA and we all hung around and talked with one another as we waited for more cars to come. The plan was to go on a cruise route and it consisted of first going up to Lynnwood and meeting at the new Dick’s in Edmonds and then head back down to Alki.
On Sunday the 23rd of October cars from all over western Washington descended on SyKart in Tukwila for the monthly nw-built.com forum meet. Individuals and crews from Olympia to Seattle participated in a successful event. Well over 30 drivers showed up for the evening to show off their rides and to compete on the Karting track.
Last Thursday marked the fourth “not so loko” Pacific Northwest StanceWorks meet. Much thanks to Paul Bruney organizing another cool event. The location this time was Juanita Park in Kirkland, WA – and while it wasn’t the greatest of locations for numerous reasons (parking, cops – see below), the overall meet had a laid back feeling and it was great to see old and new friends. Plus it was at the beach, and the sun stayed out all day.
