Wicked Big Meet CT 2017 PASMAG 48

The entry into the show was quick and proper. You could tell right away that they had experience from the show's previous instances. By the time I had finished detailing my car, it must have been around 7:30 AM yet the venue already felt busier than a typical car show around noon. It's at that moment that I knew this event was going to be HUGE.

Exhibitors were busy detailing cars or setting up their booths while the WBM staff were prepping the countless goody bags and t-shirts for premium ticket holders. The typical rumble sound of the boxer engine could be heard non-stop as the car show participants kept pouring in, mixed with spectators already lining up at the gates, well ahead of time.

When taking photos at a car show, I like to start as early as possible. The early hours are the best time to photograph cars with the owners; shots of them working on their car and caring for them. It's also a solid opportunity to take pictures of the booth cars that you know will be surrounded by crowds an hour or two later, making it near impossible to snag that perfect shot.

The event had all sorts of activities for spectators to enjoy; autocross runs, exhaust competitions, tech seminars, professional driving demos, autograph signing sessions and raffles. Drones were frequently seen scurrying across the clear blue sky. A few models well known in the car industry made an appearance, such as Faith Marone and Bear Dellinger.

Spring Break Nationals 2016: Daytona Beach, FL

Thirty years. That’s a crazy amount of time when you think about it. That’s 133 dog years. Thirty years ago, Mike Tyson won his first ever boxing title, the Chicago Bears won the Super Bowl, Top Gun was the highest grossing film of the year at over $8 million dollars, and the average price of a house in the US was $89,430. Of all those things that happened in 1986, one stood out as possibly the most important in any automotive audiophile’s life: the first year that Spring Break Nationals (SBN) took place at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach,…

Import Face-Off 2010: Epping, NH

Photos by Cliff Wallace 1st annual New England IMPORT FACE-OFF May 23rd, 2010 at New England Dragway in Epping, NH. After noticing no other national Import events were going back to New England this race season, Import Face-Off continued to fill the void by scheduling New England Dragway in 2010. The event was such a success, Joe Lombardo, New England Dragway manager, has already scheduled the 2nd annual New England IFO for the same weekend in 2011 and most likely a second one in the fall. The stands were packed (see pics) and car show score cards were sold out…
