BNW 2011 displayed regionally and nationally known sponsors, showcasing the advantages of their custom tuning services and retailing a variety of performance products geared towards Subaru enthusiasts.  Some vendors reported selling thousands of dollars in products, an astonishing accomplishment for a first annual event. Vendors also used face time with enthusiasts to collect insight on new products.  John Herring, Perrin Performance Marketing Director, was excited to be present. "We love the opportunity to interact with our customers and offer amazing show deals," stated John.  "This was exactly the type of Subaru event that has been missing in this region.  Seeing the reaction from the crowds, we think this event will grow larger every year!"

Over 30 competitors in a variety of Subaru models from 1985 - 2011 came out to race in the BNW Autocross event. Hundreds of attendees visited the Autocross track to spectate the all-Subaru competition and were ultimately entertained by the all-wheel drive induced, sideways driving, cone killers. The winners of each Autocross class took home a $100 grand prize!

Japanese Classic Car Show 2014: Long Beach, California

The annual Japanese Classic Car Show is a must attend event for anyone interested in the JDM scene, and the 10th annual event held last fall at Queen Mary Park in Long Beach, California took things to a whole new level of awesome! The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot, there was a light breeze and the clouds were amazing. The show itself was, from what I could tell, very well put together with tons of high-quality cars everywhere you looked. A nice selection of old bikes was a pleasant surprise, but it was the Skylines that stole…
