Sunday morning we rolled out to Dubfest being held out at Irwindale. It was around 11AM when we arrived expecting it to start at 10AM as listed on their event page, but it looked like they were just starting to let people in. There was a poor design to letting people in because they were taking money for tickets at the entrance instead of in the show which does cause quite a bit of traffic getting in and onto the outside road. To our surprise, the show had an extravagant admission of price $18 per a person and the show was only by the drag strip which was essentially, the parking lot.

Spotted this interesting orange Volkwagen build.

It had this very elegant steering wheel and also notice this hardwood floors. This build had a very consistently cohesive theme all around.

Everything was pretty much covered. Also notice the straw ceiling. Quite a bit of detail work put into this car.

Big fan of Corrados in general and this Corrado is justifying my liking for them. Plus this VR6 in such good condition along with that aggressive stance is quite a sight to see.

Nissan Cube I’ve spotted rather frequently around shows.

fifteen52 displaying their Tarmac wheels. I’ve found their Tarmac wheels quite desirable since I first saw them release it. The nice simplicity of a functional wheels without all the flashy lips and chrome.

Nice line up of a couple old Volkwagens.

A bit of AMG in the mix. Mercedes SL65…Black Series. Mind boggling. Coincidentally, the Top Gear UK feature of this car just came on as I like to stream Top Gear in the background while I do my blog posts.The SL65 has always been one of my favorite Mercedes.

If James Bond ever had a Volkwagen, this would be it.

Euro Projektz 8 series.

On the other hand they had these creepy mannequins out by their cars. Never really a fan of the “artificial people” and car shows; kind of like the little dolls at classic car shows.

All in all, the show are average. We were expecting some along the lines of Socal Euro Gathering which was free, but with more cars that were actually showing. Instead, it was a lot smaller, the quality was less than that of Socal Euro Gathering, and the price was far from justified. It was a nice way to blow a couple hours, but I might as well have taken a cruise on PCH instead. This show needs some work and better organization. Usually, the euro scene brings some serious cars and dedication, but this was a disappointment. Felt like I was at race wars with all racing, cars and fights breaking out.
