On the east coast in Somers, CT at Pleasant View Golf Center, on October 13, 2013, Staggered held another one of there car shows, well-known for the diversity and also for the amount of cars that come out to show off what they got. Not only was it a perfect day, but the fall weather along with the changing leaves made the absolute most desirable scenery to house so many equally beautiful cars. Who knew the east coast could bring so many sweet rides in one place? The people, the atmosphere, and of course you can’t forget the cars, made for such an amazing day for those who call themselves gear-heads.
Fatlace never ceases to hold great shows. They have come to be known as a worldwide ambassador of spreading the flush game to all the carheads of the world. With Fatlace traveling the world so much and spreading the name, it seems like they sometimes forget about their home up here in Norcal. This year however was on point, with a lot of the big Norcal crews coming out to support the show. Bringing some of the best that Norcal has to offer.
Waterwerks On the Bay has come and gone yet again, with another great show under their belt. I get excited for WWOTB every year because it is the one and only show where you get a refreshing taste of what the Euro scene has to offer here in Norcal. Waterwerks brings out freshest Euros from all over the Bay area to as far as Canada with a wide variety of different builds from off-roading Beetles to aired out Audis. This year surprisingly had a lot more BMWs representing, half of them being from the CarsxHype.com Norcal car crew. Check out the event coverage by clicking that MORE button!
Hellasikh threw their Summerbash carshow this past weekend, which turned out to be a great success for this being their first show in California. It took place right on the San Leandro marina, which was a prefect spot since you had the beautiful marina as a backdrop to all the photos. The organizers of the show drove all the way from Texas on a 24hour straight drive to hold one awesome show & get their name out in California. Id say the trip was well worth it, because they were able to see in person some of Norcal’s finest.
Waterwerks on the Bay is back! Coming August 25th, it is only a couple weeks away and there is still time to register for the show. If you have a clean Euro in Norcal make sure you register for the show! For those of you that dont know, Waterwerks on the Bay is like the Wekfest for the Euro scene bringing the cleanest Euros from all over the Pacific Northwest including; California, Washington, Nevada, Utah, & even some as far from Canada make the drive down to be in this event. Last year Waterwerks introduced the Limbo contest to the carscene here in Norcal, this year though they are bringing a new contest called the “Wheel Roll”!

In todays TBT I bring you back to 2012 with our 3-part weekend event coverage of Wuste 2012!! If you dont already know what Wuste is, it is the biggest Euro event on this side of western states. Its as CxH author Michael Kolonoff claims “an epic gathering of Euro cars that takes place on the Las Vegas Strip”. If you missed out on Wuste last year (like I did.. :/) or never heard of it, definitely make sure you check it out this year! Its a drive if you’re out here in the Bay but its a well worth drive to see one of the biggest and most organized car gatherings you’ll ever experience. “for many it’s a chance to brush shoulders with industry leaders and internet famous cars and their owners” – M. Kolonoff. Check out our 3part coverage!
The camo sticker you see on the back of Mike’s Mk4 is one of CarsxHype’s rarest and most exclusive stickers. A lot of our viewers have probably never seen this sticker. If you have one of these exclusive camo stickers you’re pretty bad@$$! There was only a VERY limited run on these and they were released just in time for Wuste.
It seems nowadays that Southern California cars have been taking the scene by storm. There are lots of shows and events for crews to come out to. When you combine this with exposure on forums, facebook, tumblr and many other media sites the scene becomes saturated with the same cars. The Northern California circuit is much different. This collection of rides comes straight from the SF Bay. I am proud to present to you some of the cars of my personal friends. We were graced by our Tucson correspondent Otis who was in Norcal for the weekend at Pebble beach. I called Mike, Dom, Carl, and Calvin to participate in some photoshoot shennanigans with Otis!
First up is Dom’s BMW E36, Dom is 100% Euro to the core. He is so Euro that he was born in Poland. Dom’s style is nothing short of immaculately clean. I have never seen his car dirty once in my life, and I see him pretty frequently. His car sits static on custom Broadway Static edition Fortune Auto coiliovers with some uber rare BBS Bugatti wheels.
Wuste Las Vegas is what you make of it. To some it’s a non-stop weekend long party, to others its a chance to catch up with old friends, and for many it’s a chance to brush shoulders with industry leaders and internet famous cars and their owners. To me Wuste was a mixture of all three and one epic adventure I’ll never forget. I cant quite remember who said it, but Wuste is just full of good people. For those of you who don’t know, Wuste is an epic gathering of Euro cars that takes place on the Las Vegas Strip (Well only a couple blocks away) I’ll take you through a journey of the main show event day!
The cars began rolling in to stage for the show. This MK4 and MK6 Jetta Wagon are posted up at the Winn VW booth. We actually cruised past these guys on the highway on our way to Las Vegas from SF.
One of the defining characteristcs of Wuste Festival, is that it is full of clean cars and good people. For this reason, one of the first stops after our 600 mile drive was a well deserved bug cleansing with some of the best folks around! The Wuste app which was created for the event goers to use over the weekend actually directed us to a nearby low car friendly car wash. This was just the beginning of an epic day!
I would like to preface this post by thanking Michael Pama, Carl Malolot, and Pablo Marx for driving from 9pm to 7am straight through SF to Vegas. Paige and Roxanne totally slept through this ordeal. Just kidding, Roxanne actually did a solid job navigating for us and bringing us to our destination as well as taking some really nice rolling shots.
Fueled by 91 octane gas, Hello Panda chocolate snacks, and really lame jokes, we set off for Las Vegas. Our lineup consisted of Mike’s 1.8T Golf MK4, Carl’s 1.8T Jetta MK4, and Pablo’s Turbo E36 M3. We decided to leave in the middle of the night to avoid the harsh desert heat.
In commemoration of this joyous adventure, we at Carsxhype printed a limited edition Wuste sticker. Mike was given the honors of being the first to receive it.
Looking mighty good on that rear hatch glass.
