The event itself wasn’t so special. About 20 cars showed up, and all of them just new and expensive Audis, BMWs, Porsches and Mercs. Not that interesting, really. Or at least not for me. Just people with a lot of money and not necessarily car enthusiasts. A few of them were modded out though, like a drift-missile style Silvia, a GTR with carbon bits and a couple of BMWs with cool wraps. I mean the participation fee was like 100 Euros.
But other than that, mostly stock expensive luxury cars and a bunch of people crowded around them. Hence the lack of photos.
However, the more interesting stuff was in the underground garage where people visiting parked. A lot of local and not-so-local tuned and modded cars showed up, and chatting with the owners and others interested in these cars was the most entertaining and valuable part of the whole experience. Revving the engines and people standing taking pics and giving thumbs up was fantastic.
The upside is that I’m always surprised at events like this by just how many people here actually are car enthusiasts. It’s just rare to see so many at one place, as car meets here are few and far between. I mean just seeing a car with different wheels or even something as banal as a window sticker is an event for me. And I live in the capitol city, mind you. People just don’t touch their cars here.
It just makes me happy to know that people close to me share the same passion. Looking forward to this event next year, hopefully the local car scene will be even greater in numbers by then.
