Canibeat has done it again with their 4th annual gathering in Princeton, New Jersey. The Princeton Airport has opened their arms to the Canibeat crew time and time again, allowing them to host one of most well-known events on the East Coast for the past three years. As always, this show is impressive, creating an event not just for your specific type of enthusiast, but also for all walks, no matter what the scene. There is no war over EURO versus JDM versus American—everyone is united by a similar passion to build the cleanest cars around.
Didn't make it to Import Expo, one of the East Coast's biggest scene events? Well, Anthony over at Halcyon Photo did, and we're glad he was there. The guys over at Import Expo in Canada hooked up with SNTRL in NYC for one of the premier events of the season at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Some of the best import cars were on display, ranging from slammed Subarus to matching Integra builds. Be sure to check out our full event coverage!
It’s not often a car show puts the best of the East Coast against that of our neighbors in the Great White North. Import Expo, a Canadian import show series, and SNTRL, a US-based tuning culture website, did just that at the Atlantic City Convention Center this past weekend. You can never be sure just what to expect from a brand-new show like this, so we were a little weary on our journey to the event. Could they really pull off a fusion of Canadian and American car culture? True to their tag line of “East Coast, We Go Hard,” the answer came the second I walked through the door.
At the heart of the American Euro scene is certainly the VAG culture. As we pointed out in our coverage from the Leavenworth Drive 2013, there are some extremely well known events that have established themselves over the years. Just about every region in the US has its own unique European event that draws enthusiasts from all over: H2Oi in the Northeast, a few big ones in California, and one of the most renowned in the Southeast is definitely Southern Worthersee, aka SOWO. While each event has its own assets and defining characteristics, they all share the common passion for what is the Euro scene. Here are our two favorites highlighting the SOWO 2013 event in Helen, Georgia.
