It has been agreed on by many, Tailored Seattle was by far one of the best most well gathered selections of cars that we had seen in the Northwest in a long time. The atmosphere at the show was just about perfect, there wasn’t much of a competition or even anything in the way of trophies at all, but to be honest i wouldn’t have had it any other way.
While editing photos i often try to think about what i want to write, how i want to write my short summary of the days events, but while editing the photos (more then 200 i might add) i kept coming back to the same thought. WaterWerks, to much of the VAG (and finally BMW’s) scene in the Northwest is much more than just a car show. WaterWerks is much more monumental than just what is likely to be seen on the surface.
Pacific Northwest’s First Annual StanceWars
2011 marks the first of what we hope to be many more years of a show called Stance Wars. The idea behind Stance Wars was to put on a competition to bring out the Pacific Northwest’s most well fitted, stanced vehicles whether it be JDM, euro, classic, mini-truck or even choppers. If it has stance, it was eligible for the show. Stance Wars in our opinion was a fresh new take on every automotive enthusiasts favorite event, and we think a big thanks goes out to Mike Toliver and his team for putting in the long hours to make the show such a good time. It’s easy to see when a show has had a lot of time put into it. The Shutter Garage team was even part of the volunteer crew that helped set up and take down the day of the event, and believe me the organization was thorough, from beginning to end without a hitch, well done guys.
It has been a hectic couple of weeks but it is coming….

Leavenworth Drive 2011
2011 marked the 10th annual Leavenworth Drive, and although the weather was less than optimal, it was no match for the 1000+ excited european drivers who have been patiently waiting all year for the day to come. Northwest European organizes the event each year, and has proven once again to put together a top notch gathering and cruise. They deserve a huge thank you from everyone who attended. Once the drivers crossed over Stevens Pass the clouds parted and the sun decided to shine and the weather couldn’t have been better for the afternoon, in all the day was very successful in all aspects, here are some of the shots that we took…
