I bought this car brand-new in August 2004 in Fayetteville, NC where I was stationed and started doin’ work right away.  Unfortunately, I was headed in the wrong direction.  I really wanted everything to be “blacked out”.  The first accessories that I bought were monster mats, AEM intake system, and black spray paint.  FAIL.  The next summer I went on my first tour to the desert.  While I was there I got everything on my wish list a Upsolute chip, Koni coils (which would be a big pain) and a BOV. Again, FAIL (except the Konis at the time).  When I got back to Fayetteville I was the fastest car in town, well at least in my own hormone filled 19 year old mind.  This is also when I started to be come addicted to MOAR LOW thanks to the invention of the spanner wrench.

Having owned 6 mk3’s and a 59 bug I was ready to “upgrade” to something more luxurious. So I searched and searched until I purchased my beloved GLI from Auburn’s Super Mall center display in 2007. The car had 24k miles on it, and was driven by the owner of Auburn VW. I daily drove it until 2008, increasing the mileage to 51k miles. At which point it got a Boser hood and shaved trunk by Artistic Creations in Lakewood Wa, BBS LM reps and Koni coilovers. Read more ›

Being from the hot rod scene I had plenty of mechanical knowledge and had more than a few custom cars under my belt, but I had never had one of my own.In September of 2008 my wife pulled me into the VW world, after going on a cruise and seeing the odd ball Scirocco’s hiding from most of the other cars.

WaterWerks 2011

Andrew Events

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.

NW-Built & StanceWars Photoshoot

Andrew Events

This past saturday i had a great time, i met a lot of cool people and had to opportunity to shoot some cars that i dont normally have the opportunity to shoot. The day started out at Griot’s Garage in Tacoma, WA for a meet  put on by NW-Built, who has a reputation for not being make specific, and that everyone with a good attitude can come out for a good time. Saturday was no different and surprisingly the weather turned out be pretty nice with the regular rain shower here and there in the early after noon but cleared up and tuned into a nice day later on, perfect for taking photos.

After leaving the meet a small group of us rolled down to the tide flats in tacoma for a StanceWars photo shoot. A few of the cars that were featured for the shoot was Mark Bello’s Scion tC, Vernon Lim’s RSX, Connor Surdi’s silver WRX, and Billy Gano’s black Miata. Check out the photos and dont forget to head over Andrew Cox Photography for prints of your favorites.
