Eurowerks 6 – Part I

Eurowerks 6 – Part I

Since this post turned out to have 124 edited pictures, we’ve decided to split it up into 2 posts, with the second post coming after lunch.

Seeing as how we have a ton of pictures to go through, we’ll keep the chit-chat to a minimum. The night before we left, the Roadster’s motor was only halfway connected to the car, Gold Wheels had a removed dashboard and heater core, and the X5 had a lot of candy and children’s toys in it. As always, though, we pulled it together and assembled the vehicles and rolled out just after work on Friday, sometime around 7 pm. Bear in mind we didn’t have time to road-test the Roadster’s newly rebuilt motor, so the test drive was technically the blast up to Minnesota. As with all good road trips, we took a few gas station and rolling shots.

After a bit of confusion regarding parking in downtown Minnesota (the warehouse district specifically, for all you Minnesotans), we grabbed all the (incredibly) warm beer we could from the car and settled in for the night. We woke up to rain, which subsided by the time we hit the road in the morning. After a bit of hunting, we found a self-service car wash right near Eurowerks’ location at the Grain Belt Brewery. And, as you might guess, more pictures were taken. Beats helping clean the cars, right?!

And then we arrived at Eurowerks. The Roadster and Project X were parked on the railroad tracks, with Gold Wheels and the 335 shored up next to an insane chopped-top VW squareback wagon. With no restrictions on sound-related asshattery, we let Gold Wheels loose quite a few times at the crowd’s request. Otherwise, we chatted it up with a great number of wonderful people, took a ton of pictures, some of which are below. Everything was at this show, from a 1100-bhp Fox-body Mustang, to a Formula B Race Car, to a Ford Fiesta RS, to an amazing 911 with 400,000 miles on the odo (100k of which are track miles)! Let’s take a look at the first chunk of pictures from the show.

Alright, that finishes up the first portion of our coverage. The second and final part will contain just as many pictures, and will be posted as soon as our humble photoblogger crams some lunch down his gullet. The rest of the show, the car limbo, awards ceremony and post-event pictures are up next!
