Nothing gets the Northwest wet like ImportMeet XXX RootBeer Meet

Pictures Woyshnis Media Words Mike Tolliver

In the northwest it’s always just wet, wet as in rain or you feel wet with the amazing cars that we have here. XXX meet was just a previous years selling VIP spots out early and getting the coveted front row spots in a heated social media battle. By the end of the day thousands would stream through the Issaquah area and it would soon be, “Did you take a picture of my car” posts in the event. Every year we work with Matt H on helping get the word out and supporting the event. This year with a few other things on Matt’s mind (a new baby) we stepped the media posts up to insure a fun morning to start the season here in Seattle. XXX RootBeer is the last of the independent pre-hipster burger joints. It’s an auto mega for events. With a car show every Saturday and Sunday starting in March till late sept. But this is the only Import event. Each year it seems to grow from cars lining up at 6am to 3pm and the cars extend for miles down Gilman Street. I would say this year was 3,000+ folks with several thousand cars. We came down to have a booth and brought our sister event Sophisticated Euro along with us. There were vendors from Portland and Yakima (hours away) to sell and chat with customers. We brought out a few local favorites like Bongs RWB built last year. It’s stunning in bright Red and the crowd snapped pics all day long. JJ wasn’t able to bring the NSX due the snow in Canada that morning. Over the next few days  we’ll show you more photos from the day. So enjoy these.
