- More than 500 modified cars rolled out to our inaugural Car Park Party – an evening car meet that took place between 5-8 pm at Turn 14 Distribution headquarters.
- Whiteline celebrated its 30th anniversary as our presenting sponsor by displaying four vehicles in the featured roundabout, including an R32 GT-R, S15 Silvia, Subaru WRX STI, and BMW M3.
- Commemorative Whiteline x Pit+Paddock YETI mugs were given away to dozens of lucky attendees.
The idea was simple: push the timing back of our Cars+Coffee, throw in a DJ to play live hip-hop and dance music, substitute coffee and donuts for food trucks, then hope for the best. After three successful Cars+Coffee meets this year, we finally worked up the courage to switch out of our regularly scheduled program to launch the first-ever Car Park Party last Saturday. The result couldn’t have been any better, especially considering the scare of rain which managed to hold off until the very end!
More than 500 modified cars overflowed the parking lot at Turn 14 Distribution’s headquarters, arguably at capacity within the first 30 minutes of the party starting. The event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of presenting sponsor Whiteline, who brought out a display of feature vehicles in the main roundabout, including an R32 GT-R, S15 Silvia, Subaru WRX STI, and BMW M3. Whiteline also gave away commemorative YETI ramblers to dozens of attendees in celebration of its 30th anniversary (be on the lookout on the Pit+Paddock Instagram page this week to see how you could win your own!).
Everyone could agree that the Car Park Party was vibin’, mainly because we had the whole venue bumpin’ by the sounds of DJ Swaga. At the same time, tasty sandwiches and shaved ice were provided by Chewy’s Food Truck and Kona Ice (respectively). Throw in the fact that no one had to wake up at the butt crack of dawn made it a lot easier for folks to plan for the drive, especially those coming from over two hours away like master fabricator/welder Jason Schmuck who brought out his insane twin-turbo J-swapped S2000. The boys from Crown SpeedLab also rolled down from NYC with five cars to hang out. We can’t forget several other local highlights like Tim Grace’s immaculate RHD EG6 Civic, Ameen Rizvi’s Toyota Soarer, and John Lee’s McLaren 600LT.
Judging from the feedback, the people want more Car Park Party, so stay tuned in the coming weeks as we begin planning for another one before the end of 2021!
