SoCal Euro Gathering

Last Saturday, SoCal Euro hosted a massive gathering of European car enthusiasts at Qualcomm Stadium here in San Diego. I was shooting solo that day so I woke up and just rolled over around 10AM to take advantage of the overcast lighting. There was quite a line up of cars from the freeway exit all the way up to the event as Qualcomm Stadium is right off the freeway. When I finally rolled in, there was already a decent amount of people there and more rolling in every second.

I’ve been seeing this blue E30 around more lately and it’s a pretty simple and clean setup.

I’ve really taken a liking to these old Sciroccos. Nice a boxy,

Ferrari 458 Italia just sitting a tow truck. Kind of lame to not even bother putting it down. It’s like why bring it at all if you scared it’s going to get damaged.

Couple more Ferraris

There a couple of rarer vintage cars around that day too.

I spotted Rich with his VW there. He likes to do his cars a bit differently than most people which is sometimes good. In this case, it kind of works in its own way.

I also ran into Mike who’s got back from deployment and been working on this E30. Its come along pretty quickly surprisingly.

Pretty clean and simple so far.

Lotus row in the back of the lot.

None of them particularly stood out to me.

The Harlequin pair of Volkswagens I’ve been seeing lately on the web.

Volkwagen Thing. I wasn’t really expecting to see one, but I wasn’t surprised to see it either.

IMG_9187

Cool set of wheels, but it doesn’t seem to go with the car all that well.

IMG_9190

This works perfectly.

IMG_9191

I absolutely loved this set of wheels since they first came out. No flashy chrome or deep lip or rivets. Just a raw simplicity of a five spoke flush wheel face.

Interesting rusted BMW I’ve been seeing lately online

Another 458 Italia. Not really digging the matte black on the hood though.

Over on the autocross side of the parking lot, there was someone using a small helicopter to fly a video camera around. Pretty cool technology I saw a year ago, but I still don’t really have enough faith in those to put my expensive camera gear in to it.
