Big SoCal Euro 2016

Big SoCal Euro 2016 

One of the hottest shows in SoCal, Big Euro has something for everyone. From new cars to classics, from vendor shopping to drag racing, it’s all there. Gathering at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego California, this event brings thousands of car enthusiasts together. A big thank you to Lon Mok and his team for organizing one of the best events on the coast. We are looking forward to attend next year’s event and hang out with our friends again!

E30 Picnic 2016

The E30 Picnic is what most car events should aspire to be like. It's more of a leisure social gathering for E30 fanatics than it is an all out concourse or car show. It just so happens there is lush grass to park your 25+ year old BMW coupe on, and everybody around you is equally as obsessed as the next person. At the E30 Picnic, it's possible to see every E30 variant, including a touring, baur, and even a custom pickup. Furthermore, this year's attendance was roughly 200 cars (and yes all were E30s), with some people driving from as far as Nebraska! Needless to say, if you live anywhere in North America and share the same addiction for the E30 chassis, attending this event is a must.

Luftgekühlt at Modernica 2016

Luftgekühlt at Modernica 2016

For more info see:

In the Porsche vernacular, Luftgekühlt represents all the air-cooled cars in the the manufacturer’s history, from the Pre-A 356 through the 993 model line, which ended in 1998. More specifically, Luftgekühlt is the brainchild of two-time Le Mans class winner Patrick Long and noted Southern California creative director Howie Idelson. A true Porsche happening.

Luftgekühlt™ is a brand founded initially as a series of automotive-themed events featuring a tightly-curated list of historically significant or interesting cars – both race and street. There's no set formula for our events, but we're excited by cool venues, fun people and creative expression, so you can bet those elements will always be in our recipe. We like coming up with wild ideas that celebrate the passion we have for all things air-cooled, and we love collaborating with likeminded people and brands.

Global Motorsports Group, known as GMG Racing, opened the shop for everyone to see during their annual open house. GMG is a company inspired by racing. Since 2001 they have been focusing on professional racing and servicing those race cars.

The open house showcases projects and customer cars. Walking around the event you will notice that the event is sprinkled with exotics and rare cars throughout history. Classic cars from Audi, BMW, Porsche were all present. It was a lively event with lot's to see and new people to meet. Here is just a few photos from the event.

Look back at Sema 2015

Sema is the worlds biggest automotive show in the USA or maybe even the world. We have been going since 2002 and this year was no exception. We had applied to present 3 different cars at sema. And this year one of our cars was accepted and it happed to be our BMW e3 Bavaria. Our goal at CAtuned is to build classics in a different flare. And show our parts that we sell and use on a daily basis. The Bavaria is not a finished car or one that isn't perfect in any way. But we were happy to show it and even more happy to see like minded individuals enjoy it at the show. 


And now some awesome highlights from the show:

SOWO 2015 Main coverage

Saturday, the day of the actual show. The field was filled with VWs, Audis, and Porsche as everyone came together for the main event. Outside of the field everyone one else was out on the streets, walking around, driving around, or buying merchandise from the vendors. A lot of beautiful cars, a lot of beautiful builds, just have a look for yourself.
