2010 Eurowerks Show - Eurowerks 4

Despite Poor Weather, Eurowerks Again Demonstrated A Great Reason To Visit Minnesota.

It still surprises us how much glorious sheetmetal comes out of the Midwest year after year. And even the rain at this year's Eurowerks didn't prevent it from bursting at the seams. Held at the Historic Grain Belt Brewery in Minneapolis for the third year by the Minnesota-based club bearing the same name, Eurowerks 4 once again proved that if you want to come to a big show with a low-key atmosphere, you have to plan to make the trip up to the great white north.

As in previous years, there were countless examples of different Euro styles - Mk4 Jetta coupes, flush E30 BMWs, track-ready Porsches, dumped Audis, period-correct cars and even a zombie-themed Mk1 Golf.

The show was stacked with cars pushing every boundary, whether it was how low a daily-driven car can be, or how much power can be squeezed from a VR6.

The extra-curricular activities had also expanded this year, with the addition of a crazy bearded fellow yelling Euro trivia questions into a crowd of people. Some were so hard they stumped even the most diehard dataheads, but the new attraction joined established events such as the ravenous cupcake-eating contest, sparkplug changing challenge and famous custom-trike races. The DJs also returned, playing custom sets to create the chill vibe the show is known for.

It culminated in an awards ceremony, where custom-made beer taps were handed out as trophies to the show winners. The People's Choice award came down to the narrowest of margin, ultimately going to Jess Clewell's long-awaited bagged, shaved, carbed 'n clean Manila green Mk1 Rabbit.

Despite harsh weather, Midwesterners still pump out top-shelf material every year, leaving the loyal attendees wondering what will show up next year. We can't wait to find out, and hope to see you in Minnesota for the 2011 show.
