In case you've been unplugged for the last two weeks, we did a thing in the Pacific Northwest. With support of Meguiar's, we hosted a car show at LeMay-America's Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington. It was the first of its kind and hopefully not the last as we curated a display of 120 Japanese and European cars. With a smaller show field, it meant there'd be plenty of walking room, great photo ops and spectators would be treated to only the best of the best vehicles that the region had to offer. And instead of typical car show awards with sometimes far too many categories, we simply recognized the Ultimate 12 based on overall execution, style, authenticity, cleanliness and of course, what I like to call, "wow factor".
Super Street at LeMay went off with a bang (and to our surprise, without many hiccups!) Perhaps our only complaint is that we didn't do it any sooner! Be sure to check out our previous coverage, Part 1 and Part 2. Enjoy the rest of Renz Dimaandal's photos here as well as our full length video as documented by Samuel Rojas.
Thanks again to everyone who was a part of our first-ever Super Street car show in the PNW. We appreciate your support, and we're penciling in another show for 2020!

Last minute Meguiar's goody bag preparations.
Rich Todd's NSX didn't just look pristine, but also had the turbocharged and built C30A powerplant to back it up. We'll have a full feature on this bad boy soon!
Built piece-by-piece in his own driveway, Adam Nonis and 1966 Volvo Amazon received one of our Ultimate 12 Awards. It's been converted to a two-door, sits atop a BMW E30 chassis, and features plenty of details you never saw coming.
That new-new... Keegan Hollister's SR-powered 510 is one of our latest feature cars.
Ray Stonehocker's fine Datsun wagon rolling onto the field.
Emilio Yancey-Ruiz shining up his Musk Customs widebody E46 M3.
A Datsun 280Z with a lot more under the hood than what you'd expect. Built by Josh Wilson.
Spoon aero, Mugen hard top, CE28 wheels and much more... Sergio Mendoza easily has one of the cleanest S2000s in the area.
The "Wagon Factor" Danny Vasquez is in the process of turbocharging his M3-powered 3-Series wagon. He didn't get it running in time for the show but still transported it nonetheless. Major props Danny!
We had a handful of Toyota trucks on hand, all of which were owned by guys that came from the car world.
This homebuilt LS-swapped S14 by Jon Kramp was a treat to see!
Mr. Zwing always turning heads with his E36 convertible tire shredder. Thankfully no tires were shred on the premises (thanks Zach!).
JJ Dubec brought a whole crew down from Canada that included his Liberty Walk NSX.
An enormous audience was on hand for the live RWB Porsche build happening inside the LeMay museum. The 911 owned by Brian Martin of Phantasy Kolors (https://www.instagram.com/phantasykolors/) marks the fifth RWB converted Porsche finished in the Seattle region.
