Re: Car shows
i have never been to a motorvation event (i find the vast majority of V8 guys are as insular as anyone else in the car scene and regard all 4 cylinders as crap, irrespective of make of car, history of car etc) but if it is the case that kia mentors with 12" subs are on show, then motorvation will simply die. i agree that if cars are going to be shown in a high profile event such as motorvation, then the standard of cars has got to be high. i also believe that these kind of shows need to be representative of all cars on the scene, whether they are WRXs, XR8s, HSVs, hot rods or minis. it is not easy to exclude certain types of car because they are made in japan, they dont have enough cylinders or the fact that they have their own shows, such as auto salon (which i also dont go to). there are plenty of events such as cruises, all ford days and even big al's poker run early next year.
i hope you can get in though, you seem really keen. good luck.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
