This medley of trendsetting street cars, highly modified super cars and tuned motorsport cars not only struck curiosity (and education) to the average consumer/attendee, but also the interest of the hobbyists in aftermarket and modified culture. If you're going to do something for the first time you better do it right! And that's what Josh and his team did at the VIAS!

Return To The Island: Berlin Klassik

Give a quick thought to how you entered any car shows you attended this year. It's almost usually through a front door to a convention center, or if it was an outdoor event, up to a ticket booth, which then gets you access to the grounds. In response to some crazy wait times from the past year's show, Berlin Klassik tackled things a little differently this time around. Instead of having registered show cars and attendees coming in through the only entrance to the Guelph Lake Conservation Area and ending up in one line, show organizers booked an open field…
