Besides the title of this post, I’m going to be a good boy and leave out all the Anchorman quotes and puns… So its Sunday morning and I have nothing to do really. I’m laying in bed trying to decide what whats for lunch. Then I remember a few of my friends were heading down to San Diego to attend the Big SoCal Euro Gathering over at Qualcomm Stadium. I kinda hesitated, just because. This year I’ve sort of taken a bit of a hiatus with attending car events, just to really take a break and enjoy my summer. That and my girlfriend was about to kill me because last year we attended almost every show, hahahaha. But since it’s labor day weekend and I have an extra day of work, why not!
A few hours later, I arrived to Qualcomm Stadium and my god was this event packed. Cars as far as the eye can see. As much as I wanted to see every car, this event was way to huge and to hot for my husky ass. I was breathing heavily as soon as I saw the event from this view, haha. I generally took a glance in the main area.
Correct me if I’m wrong. I believe this is an Audi 50. I did speak to the owner to confirm the model. Out of all the cars in attendance in the main area, this really caught my eye. Such a classic look and looks so well maintained.
An engine bay from a simpler time.
I stopped over the drag strip area. Though it was only an 1/8th of an mile, it was actually pretty entertaining. Though one disappointment is seeing a lot of these euro’s being beaten by a lot of America and Japanese :X but that’s none of my business. Hahahhaa, I kid.
at least that Porsche was able to beat that Civic EK *chuckle*.
E46 M3 over at the MotorsportHardware booth.
A future Ferrari owner.
Caught some of my friends car’s over at the Toyo Tires booth.
Though I don’t know the owner of this Audi. I personally love the GT Style done this luxury sedan.
Creaminz Porsche GT3 / Volkommen Design / LTMW
Floss_Design’s Porsche GT3. I love the Center lock wheel setup. So unique being on a daily car.
Phaze2 Mizzark’s M5
A beatutiful E30 M3? Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m not much of a euro fanatic.
Spotted a Audi RS5’s on Air by the guys over at TagMotorSports. I would not mind!
Another Audi sedan right next to it.
E30 triplets in the good old Red, HaWhite and blue color way. Merica. Hahaha
Rob The Crook 458 and Liberty walk 458.
I was actually on the way back from the portopotty. Spotted this gorgeous Benz.
The even’t kept getting more humid so I sat in my car with the AC blasting. Took this lazy shot of the Liberty walk GTR / LTMW

Phaze2 Mikey warming up the Liberty Walk 458 for our Journey home.

Just to let you know, unofficially. A trip to San Diego cannot be done without eating at Phils BBQ, it’s the rules. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
Beef ribs to die for!
and a cure for dehydration.
Now that we’re about 5lbs heavier. One last stop to the gas station to fuel the way home. Another shot of the Liberty walk 458
Creaminz Porsche GT3
even the LTMW Toyota Tundra got some style. Gotta love those’s TE’s.
Do you know how awkward it is to caravan this all these amazing cars and here I am with my 1995 Toyota Corolla Wagon. lol -_-. I can’t wait to get my GS430 back from repair! I miss cruises like this. Probably still wouldn’t be able to keep up, but i’ll be left behind in style 8)
Victor Wu’s new new new m4. This is the first time I’ve seen an M4 up close and my oh my is it beautiful. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a transformation really soon.
US border control checkpoint. You should’ve seen the look at all the officers seeing each of these car’s pass by, just priceless. While they were distracting the agents, I got away with all my illegal drugs! Bwuahahahaha.
Its now about midnight and we just hit Orange County. I parted my way’s while the rest of them trek back to LTMW.
