Supercars Up The Intensity At Caffeine & Gasoline

Supercars Up The Intensity At Caffeine & Gasoline

The spirit of spring was definitely in the air at our April Caffeine & Gasoline event, yet rain was still falling from the sky. The vibe was strong, there seemed to be more story-telling going on, and a lot of people lingered after the show was officially over… all signs that more than flowers are blossoming in the great Northwest.

Ferraris For The Win At Caffeine & Gasoline

Ferraris For The Win At Caffeine & Gasoline

For the first time in 2017 the rays of the sun greeted us at our Caffeine & Gasoline® cruise-in car show. The joint was jumpin’ as the place was a buzz with car stories and tuning advice. Donuts are a great way to judge attendance and our 40 dozen was gone in 60 minutes… We could’ve had 80 dozen and still not had any leftovers.

Saturday, February 4th proved who the hardcore car fans really were. In true northwest fashion the show field was being pelted with rain but the faithful still showed up in surprisingly high numbers. Our monthly Caffeine & Gasoline cruise-in car show featured a theme of hot rods.

Our Detail Wagen Delivers The Goods At SEMA

Our Detail Wagen Delivers The Goods At SEMA

We built the Griot’s Garage World’s Fastest Detail Wagen for the SEMA trade show. Standing out in a sea of flashy cars was a tall order because it would take a keen eye to notice the BMW’s subtle, well-executed customizations. Still, we hoped our two-door M3 wagon conversion would be noticed. Boy, did our dreams come true.

Ringbrothers 900-Horsepower Winnebago… You Had Us At 900 Horsepower w/ Video

Ringbrothers, an aptly named shop founded by bothers Mike and Jim Ring, show what a small team with big ideas can accomplish. The shop, located in the small hamlet of Spring Green, Wisconsin, has risen to the ranks of the elite in the car building realm. This can plainly be seen in their three innovate and eccentric 2016 SEMA cars.

Introducing: Griot’s Garage World’s Fastest Detail Wagen

Introducing: Griot’s Garage World’s Fastest Detail Wagen

Our Detail Wagen is set to make a big splash at SEMA but in order to maximize its impact we’ve had to keep it under wraps for the last 10 months. It’s been excruciating, but the day of reckoning is here. We will quickly rundown the specs but rest assured we have a series of buildup articles in the pipeline. This thing rocks.

Holy Bavarian Bombshells Batman! There were tons of BMWs flying the M Power flag at Griot’s Garage as we hosted the BMW CCA Puget Sound Chapter’s M Car Day car show.
