There are only a handful of annual events within the European car community that are extremely well organized and show case a handful of exquisitely built cars. One annual event that has been going on now for 3 years is Euro Tripper, hosted in South Florida by Paul Barney and his hard working staff. It feels like just yesterday we were attending the first Euro Tripper event in Estero, FL.
Cars, enthusiasts, toys, and holiday cheer came together for the 11th Annual Motor 4 Toys Charity Car Show and Toy Drive on the morning of December 7th, 2014. Presented by The Auto Gallery Los Angeles, Coastline Motorsport.net, and Fiat in Woodland Hills, California. Car enthusiasts from all over California came to show their support, with approximately over 2,000 cars and 5,000 people in attendance. A group of 100 members, one of the many sponsors of the event, even drove down to Los Angeles from the Northern California the day before. Other sponsors included HRE Wheels, Audi Club of Los Angeles, and California Car Cover Co.
Words from Cole Young:
“A Euro Tripper 3 Sequel – On our way back me and my good buddies (pretty much family) were going through an old town with a ran down gas station. While everyone was in one spot I wanted to film everyone’s cars. These are the guys that I look forward hanging out with every other weekend and recognizing each other as a family. ”

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.
