Arid Club Car Show 2013

Arid Club Car ShowLast year I just sorta heard about the Arid Club Car show from the Silver Sage PCA and decided to check it out.  I didn't do much socializing at the time since I didn't know that many people and checked it out.  Well Wednesday was time for this year's Arid Club Car Show.  With the Silver Sage PCA getting invited they showed up in mass (actually filled their half of the parking lot to capacity ) with a lovely variety of old school and new cool cars. The other side, filled with cars from members of the Arid Club, had another variety of machinery lined up.

Cars and Coffee, Boise ID

Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 Yes, finally Boise, ID, has had it's first REAL Cars and Coffee event.  There has been some people who have done the whole hey lets gather at a coffee shop and shoot the shit with our generic cars and call it a cars and coffee and of course the Silver Sage PCA club does their own little take on the cars and coffee thing, but this, this was different. An organized effort by three guys set up a Facebook page and set about inviting some of the cool cars in the Valley to the first Cars and Coffee in Boise, ID.

Hot Wheels Hunting

HW Boulevard Porsche 993 GT2Oh dear lord what the hell have I gotten my self into.  When I worked for Wal-Mart all those many years ago I hated the Hot Wheels collectors mostly because they would make a mess of the toy isles and they were not the nicest people to deal with.  Once we opened 24hrs though we hardly saw them just the aftermath in the mornings. Now some how I've become one of those Hot Wheels collectors.  Granted I'm nice enough not to leave a mess or be rude to people.

2013 IR208

Import Revolution 2013August brings us the best Import and Sport Compact car show in the Valley with the Import Revolution show downtown.  This is Import Revolution's third show and the second one downtown.  This year to beat the heat they started the show in the afternoon and went into the night.  I headed down at the start to chat up some friends and take some pictures.  And apparently get a parking ticket.

August's First Saturday Events

Porsche 911 TurboOh yeah another month another First Saturday event day.  Fist up of course is the Porsche Coffee and Cars meet and drive followed by the Volkswagen group meetup.  Typically I don't go on the drives as I usually have other things I need to do on Saturdays before the VW meets but as this months VW meet was going to be very late at night it gave me the opportunity to tag along on the drive.

Sun Valley Road Rally 2013

Porsche GMG Racing 911 WC-GT2About time I get this written up.  It's been a couple weeks since I went to the 2013 Sun Valley Road Rally.  I have to say it was an awesome week.  In short I drove a Cayenne and a Panamera and when I wasn't driving something cool I was watching some cool cars go flat out on Hwy 75 in Ketchum which is what the Sun Valley Road Rally is all about.  Fast cars going fast to raise money for the Blaine County Community Drug Coalition of which they raised more than $1mm during the event.
