When you have almost 500 modified European cars rolling out together on a beautiful spring morning in the Pacific Northwest, you know it's going to be a day to remember! After winter months collecting parts and building projects, everybody is eager to bring out their European automobiles and show off the fruits of their labor.

Port Townsend, WA has graciously played host for the last six years as members of the Northwest Euro community invade their quiet town. This year, participants also pulled together to collect an astonishing 1600 lb of food for NW Harvest, a non-profit organization supporting food banks in Washington state.

Previous events indicated that the growing number of participants would make planning the annual Port Townsend Cruise more of a challenge. But with the help of VW/Audi specialists Achtuning and the car care pros at Griot's Garage, the 2010 event couldn't have gone smoother.

Griot's opened shop Sunday morning to allow attendees plenty of parking space while Achtuning handed out directions and parking passes. At Port Townsend, Achtuning had rented Memorial Field, the town's baseball stadium for parking and a comfortable tailgating environment on the lush grass.

This year's event was reportedly the largest automotive gathering the City had ever seen. The cruise turned show 'n shine, also provided plenty of eye candy and socializing opportunities for both the participants and residents, as a variety of Audis, BMWs, Mercedes, Volvos, Porsches and VWs were proudly displayed throughout Memorial Field. The town itself is also great to visit, with plenty of attractions to keep everybody entertained.

Achtuning will continue kick-starting each season with the Port Townsend Cruise. So if you find yourself in the Northwest in early March, don't miss this great event!
