I was chatting with a buddy of mine and he was telling about this aircooled Porsche show and he kept say “Mike , you need to go to this, you’ll understand when you get there.” I know what he was talking about now. It’s the vibe of something cool, something spontaneous something so relaxed its amazing. It’s just like #SoEuro. Broken into its elements , its a Porsche meet, but add the elements together, it’s one hell of a day trip.
Upon arrival we knew we had to remote park at a lot a few minutes away, grated by event staff we started to notice the love of Porsche once you got into the lot. After a few minutes we were headed on a private transport for the event. Nothing says cool like a fleet of price busses in LA.

I’ve been to alot of shows, and it’s easy to see a great show and crappy one real quick. eurotripper is great show and well worth a visit in the near future. If you wanna drive down, the roads seemed very smooth and easy to drive at 85mph in my rental BMW 430i. I did see some plates from Georgia, Tennessee and many other states besides florida. Paul the owner of the show really puts in the effort and the details that make this a great event.
Everyone loved this bagged dub, three piece wheels and built to harness dublove
had a few minutes to chat with this great guy and awesome ride
Out at the main gate to Eurotripper
I never ran into Sam Dobbins the entire weekend
Who can you name on the stage ?
What you wouldn’t drive your lambo over from Miami ?
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. 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! www.soeuro.bigcartel.com
