A look back at: Eurowerks 6: Grain Belt Brewery, Minneapolis, MN
With its sixth installment this year, Eurowerks kicked off Saturday morning in quite the trending fashion. A dark cloud cover and rain greeted the early risers on Saturday morning, just as it had in previous years. Thankfully, as show time approached, the inclement weather retreated into the distance. Staff was busy making sure everything was in place for over 300 cars that filled the parking lots adjacent to the historical Grain Belt Brewery in downtown Minneapolis, MN.
As the car scene has evolved, the enthusiasts within have become more accepting to things that may not lie within the limits of their particular community. Eurowerks was a great example again this year by allowing an exhibition class for those cars that didn’t fall within the original European-based limits of the show. The exhibition class didn’t upset either; a wide range of vehicles, including a diverse group of Subarus, as well as two very clean Datsuns, were scattered amongst their European rivals. Two noteworthy cars, a Ford Escort RS Cosworth and a ’78 Ford Fiesta RS (which won Best of Show), divided the two main lots for registered participants.
Vendors and local performance shops displayed their projects, as well as wide variety of swag to choose from.
