Looking back at previous years, i didn’t think that this show could get much better, but after all the changes i saw this year i knew that i was all wrong.

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 than 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.
It is something like a bookmark in time, some of the people I talk with on a day-to-day basis refer to it as a project deadline (you know who you are) and can be referenced at any time throughout the year. Others, while the before mentioned might be true to some extent, just can’t wait to see what the Northwest (and you know the Northwest always does it big) will bring to the table this year.

Alright so this doesnt look to be exactly automotive buuut, looks can be deceiving this event is actually put on by a few people who are a part of German Perversion (myself included) and all automotive enthusiasts are invited. The event is to raise money for The American Cancer Society. Last years event raised about $1100, this years event has raised just over $1800 and opposed to last years event where we only had one person actually finish the massive steak of 4.5lbs, a potato, veggies and a dinner roll, this year we had not one, not two, but THREE eaters devour their entire plate.
Another few differences between last years and this years event is, last year we only had 6 eaters, which is still a lot of people willing to take on this kind of challenge, however this year, we had 9 people attempt the challenge. We also expanded the audience to all automotive enthusiasts against last year that was strictly european oriented, Speed Factory, traditionally, an import shop sponsored Joe Rabon (3rd place eater) and Unorthodox Customs whom is trying to get more into the european and import scenes also sponsored Nate Pickle whom ended up taking 1st place.
There were nearly 30 items that were raffled off at the event a few of the item inluded dyno pulls, photo shoots, a satellite radio, ipods, and even large Griots care care kits. Ok thats enough talk here are some of the pics from the night.

This was WaterWerks’ 3rd Annual 2 day show, but WaterWerks isn’t just a show like much of the rest of the events in the northwest. WaterWerks has a week full of events that precedes the first day of the show, the auto cross, which is followed by the main event, the show. The show is a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association where all the proceeds raised go towards. This years show had more then 400 cars on display and raffled items such as RS6 replica wheels, Podi gauges, numerous other items, and certificates. Here are a few photos from the day.

Just wanted to post a few pics from this years Leavenworth drive, which had a very successful turnout. The drive takes place every June where hundreds of european car owners from all over the northwest gather at Bellevue community college in washington for a simple meet and greet, after what seems to be only a few minutes everyone heads out to the small german town of Leavenworth, WA the drive is about 2hrs east of Bellevue, and is filled with a plethora of twisties, which is always a good time.
