Midwest airport meet celebrates fifth year with biggest event yet

Jul 7, 2015
Photographer: Ryan Belville

We love bringing our fans event news from all across this great land and beyond, and this year Michigan-based shooter Ryan Belville hooked us on coverage from Euro Hangar 2015 – a meet that takes place annually at the Park Township Airport in Holland, a town about 30 miles southwest of Grand Rapids. It isn’t often car shows make it onto airstrips, which is one of the big reasons why Euro Hangar is so unique.

Roots of the show go back to 2011, when a small group of friends decided to leverage the success of their European Car Club to create a proper event. Once the idea was hatched, it took the crew a short but busy seven months to secure a location, build a website, find sponsors, devise a marketing strategy, and completely plan the car show from scratch. Different names for the event were kicked around until all the organizers agreed Euro Hangar sounded the coolest (and we have to agree).

That first year planners got some 300-plus vehicles to show up, and the number has only grown since, encompassing everything from high-end supercars to the most modest of VW Beetles. The ensuing years saw Euro Hangar become a nonprofit, with the money brought in via registrations and sponsors used only for the expense of organizing the show and helping it to grow, and a portion going to the airport to put to use in improving the facility.

As you can see from the photo gallery, this year’s Euro Hangar was another success. VW, Audi, and BMW all appeared to be represented well, with handfuls of Porsche and Mercedes-Benz among the mix – and with enough digging you’ll even find a right-hand drive in there, too. Looks like someone brought out a mobile dyno, ta boot, but we’re not sure how many bagged and slammed cars were taking advantage of that. Give the photo album a flip, click here for results from the event’s Top 25, and enjoy the sights from this year’s Euro Hangar car show.
