Attending car shows and events is always a great way to get out of the house, catch up with old friends, and make new acquaintances. You also get the chance to check out the variety of cars, and might encounter one that personally stands out above the rest.
The Summer of the Pacific Northwest this year was quite a warm one – with temperatures reaching almost record highs of a scorching 90 degrees and above on the west sound. This created the perfect opportunity to host some great events, including some new like NSX2K and others for their annual showing like StanceWars, The Old School Reunion, and Formula Drift Seattle.

The summer weather of the Pacific Northwest is very spontaneous, but when the sun comes out there is no better car to have then a convertible. I got together with Stacey Vandiver who drives a white BMW E30 convertible that has been to hell and back. I first met Stacey about 2 years ago at a Subaru meet and have enjoyed watching her car grow to what is has become. Even though I’ve known her for so long I knew very little about how she got into the automotive scene. During the photo-shoot I asked her some questions about herself and the E30:
Stance has been a staple of our car culture for the past few years. Met with skepticism from many people in our scene at first – fitment, offset and camber have slowly become a key consideration of so many current builds.
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?
