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.
Now john ludwick jr. isn’t new to euro, he’s a godfather from the east. John from NightLazer , The Governors Club & The Rising Sea has been around the block a few times, we were lucky enough to come across these photos from the #H2oi last weekend. You may have seen him rollin hard with his Corvair in the past.
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.

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
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.
