it’s time to go a little bit bigger

Sophisticated Euro Logo


I’d like to tell you that my passion for cars and the burning passion I have for european cars has lead me to just do what I’ve wanted for so many years. I’ve created an ambitious goal to bring Sophisticated Euro on the road for this #twenty18 season. I’ve been involved in many events over the years but I have year to truly forge my own trail. In the spring of 2017 I wanted to take “So-Euro” to Las Vegas for Sunday after StanceWars but I was advised to wait by many of closests friends. That was hard advice to swallow at the time. I knew that would set my plans back a full year and might derail my dream of passion for european car shows. After some consideration I followed my advisers plans and I just put more effort into my Seattle show. A year later I’m hear to announce that Sophisticated Euro will now follow StanceWars to Las Vegas in the spring, follow to New Jersey in the fall and Houston for the Winter. Bringing the total number of shows for Sophisticated euro to four in #Twenty 18.

April Sophisticated Euro x Car Show x Las Vegas 2018
August Sophisticated Euro x Car Show x Seattle 2018
Sept Sophisticated Euro x Car Show x East 2018

November is still pending this years event.

Our Official 2017 Film of Sophisticated Euro​

In 2016 we started “So-Euro” with an idea of everything from Austria, Germany and England combined into one event. I worked on many other european shows prior but this would be my chance to show my vision without compromise. in 2016 we didn’t even have an official video, our setup was slightly off and vision needed some work. Here is what two years of work can get you. While it’s not perfect in 2017 its was enough to prove the idea and get everyone excited for 2018. RSVP for 2018

My first year covering Sophisticated Euro, was such a dope day. Mike and his team always go above and beyond with their shows. Seriously impressed with the turn out this year. Can’t wait to shoot the next show.

Scores from our 2017 show


Each year we will, and always will show you the scores from the show. We’re human and we make mistakes but this year we resolved them before the end of awards. For 2017 we used three judges.

Judge one – Body and paint

Judgetwo – Interior , truck and safety – Mike Tolliver

Judge three – Engine,  wheels and tires



If you have never shown this format there are a few things to know to help you. Safety and truck are missed by most and its 20 point combined.

For safety insure you have five this visible at all times.  Oil , gas, water, tools, spare, jack , flares, jumper cables, fasten seatbelts, firstaid kit. Any five will get you five points.

Trunk – A closed truck get you a zero, and clean but full trunk will get you a few points. Remember there are 15 points here. Display your safety items , vacuum and  add some flare.

Hints on Interior – Are your door jams clean, like hinges ? Also take a  look at your gas pedal , is it clean or dirty. If you took the time to clean your pedals, you took the time to clean your  car thoroughly


Thank you Seattle for our little show



Well first I want to give a huge thank you to my staff who worked so hard today. Thank you to the hundreds of folks that came out to our second show and first at this new venue The Sanders Estate. We are super proud of the show today. Cool and small was what we hoped for and I think we hit that mark. Please take a minute to Like Sophisticated Euro to stay up to date on our shows. Next year maybe adding Las Vegas in the spring, NJ late summer and Houston in the fall. Tomorrow we’ll add the merch to the store in case you missed out today. This was a perfect end to our summer show season, again thank you all for your support!
