Fun in the sun! It was a perfect day to have some fun with your car at last weekend's 'Drive Everything' event. The only downside.....sunburn. We had fantastic variety of cars, including a Factory Five 427 AC Cobra, Delta Integrale Evo II, Porsche 911, Cadillac ATS-V and more! Folks took advantage of the relaxed atmosphere and went on plenty of ride-alongs and test drives.
I'm excited to announce a new partnership between Avants and Achtuning! Avants members can now save 10% on labor at Achtuning.
Thank you to Robb Newby and his team at GodSpeed Fabrication for hosting a wonderful tech session yesterday. It's truly impressive what these guys can do with metal. Everything from fabricating roll cages for PRO3 BMW racecars to designing/building a Mack Truck hot rod.
A small group of lucky Avants members got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity last weekend to visit the Automobili Lamborghini Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory (a.k.a the "Lambo Lab").
Lava Orange 911? More like "Cone" Orange :) We had another great 'Drive Everything' event this past Sunday at Emerald Downs. Participants got the opportunity to try out three different courses.....a slalom, a skidpad and a long autocross-style course featuring plenty of twists and turns.
Another fun Avants Tech Session this morning at C.A.R.S. - Custom Auto Repair Specialists in Bellevue. Great seeing everyone! Special thanks to Paul and Jon for at C.A.R.S. for teaching us all about bumper repair, painting techniques, etc.
That escalated quickly! The weather at Sunday's 'Drive Everything' event at Emerald Downs started out relatively pleasant, but things changed quickly when the hurricane arrived! It's a good thing that folks were able to get plenty of driving in before the weather turned south.
What a great way to celebrate the first sunny day in Seattle in months! Avants members got a private tour of Authentic Motorcars and the opportunity to go for a ride in some amazing automobiles including a BMW 2002Tii, Porsche 356B, Porsche 911 2.7, Ferrari 328 GTS and Lancia Montecarlo.
Not a bad way to spend a rainy Sunday in February! Thank you to everyone that came out to Sunday's 'Drive Everything' event at Pacific Raceways.
Participants got the opportunity to drive a bunch of amazing cars by swapping with other members on a closed-course. Exercises included a Slalom, Figure-8, Small Auto-X course and a Straightaway.
Lancias, Teslas, Alfas, oh my! Great seeing everyone today at The Shop! A little rain and wind never hurt anybody! Lots of great ride-alongs and swaps. Thanks to everyone that made this event such a success.
Thanks to everyone that braved the weather and came out to Saturday's 'Drive Everything' event at Pacific Raceways. The wet surface made everything more fun! Participants got the opportunity to drive some amazing cars including an Audi S6 and SQ5 (courtesy of Audi Seattle) and a VW Atlas (courtesy of Auburn VW)
Thanks to Mark Green at Cars Yeah for having me on his podcast! Always a pleasure to talk about cars and Avants with a fellow car enthusiast!
If you are entrepreneurial and like cars, I highly recommend Cars Yeah. Lots of great guests that span the entire automotive spectrum (celebrities, racers, entrepreneurs, etc).
