If you haven’t noticed by now, Florida offers year round car events. In bidding farewell to 2014, the crew from I Love Driving Slow held WinterFest at the Tampa Executive Airport.
This love affair of mine starts back from one day walking out of school and seeing this beautiful green lump of late 70’s metal parked up outside. I then didn’t see this car for another 18 months…but when I did, it was amazing to see it again. Now I know a lot of people will be reading this and wondering exactly what it is? Well this is the Golf’s little brother, the Polo. First made back in 1975, it also included a twin version: The Audi 50. Both being rare back then, and even more rare now.
Once a year in late November the group from UroTuning gathers all of us in Bradenton Motorsports Park for an event called FixxFest, already in its eleventh year its one of the few events in Florida that gathers the european community and lets everyone showcase their builds they have been working throughout the year.

There’s not a lot of shows that originate out of Florida, but the ones that do. Well, those are the ones that always draw a giant crowd no matter what it is you drive. You see Florida is a pit stop for shows like Nuro Tag, WekFest, or even Formula D for that matter. But one of the few shows that originates out of the state that attracts people from Miami to Pensacola, hell even people from up north, is Simply Clean. There is no other show that comes out of this state that draws a bigger crowd, bar none. But the most amazing thing about the Simply Clean events is the immense progress that it has built from over the years. Simply Clean one started out at a small parking lot by UCF at a local Boba hangout spot. Since then, its grown to a show that floods an area a mile long. Yes that’s right, no I’m not exaggerating, literally a mile long. It’s like a fairy tale in ways. As far as the eye can see there are cars and people. I mean did anyone go to SC4 two years ago? It was so big that the exit for Destination Daytona was shut down on i95. Process that, that’s how many cars were building up on the HIGHWAY just to attend an event run by one man with the help of a lot of locals. I’m sure by now you’ve probably guessed, this is our event coverage of Simply Clean 6 at Destination Daytona in Daytona Beach, FL. Me personally, I suggest you bust out bottle of lotion and a box of Kleenex.
Come autumn in New Jersey opens up so many great opportunities for people in the car scene. Boost weather is always present and shooting cars is always beautiful. I had the pleasure of shooting one of my favorite static MK4 Jetta’s around, Joe Macchiaverna’s (@moejacc). Joe and I had always been solid friends throughout high school and college, so it was nice getting back to reality after school and having such a beautiful car to write about for the first episode of Me In My Garage.
