This weekend, the annual Seattle Auto Show will highlight almost 500 vehicles from car manufacturers around the globe, along with local auto-centered companies, engaging your gearhead nature and providing great entertainment for your friends or family (or both).
From Subaru, Honda, and more showcasing the latest in sedan, SUV, and Cross-over goodness, to Jeeps’ new Renegade and the Chevrolet Colorado, to high end cars you’ll only (usually) get to see on a showroom floor or on a movie screen, such as a McLaren MP4-12C or the Corvette Stingray.
Check out the many alternative fuel vehicles – from the Nissan Leaf to the Chevrolet Spark to Tesla’s Model S, and more – for the more eco-friendly car enthusiast in the PNW.
For those wanting a more hands on experience, about a dozen manufacturers will be offering free test drives of the latest models. After you’re done looking in and around names like Scion and Toyota, you can head out to the garage and sign up for a free roll around the block – trip comes with free, in-car auto-rep.
When you’re done looking at all the new cars and trying out your select few, head over to Tacoma’s very own LeMay America’s Car Museum exhibit to take a look at the custom rods, classic Fords, and cool cars from across the eras.
The Seattle Auto Show really has something for everyone – if cars isn’t your thing, let your gearhead friend drag you along so you can get your hands on some new Microsoft products at the Xbox One tour car, featuring the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 computers.
Tickets for the Seattle Auto Show are $14 for adults and $11 for seniors over 62, while children under 12 get in for free. E-tickets can be purchased online for easy admittance.
CenturyLink’s doors open for the Seattle Auto Show at:
Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Friday from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
While the Seattle Auto Show may not have the pomp and circumstance that Paris or New York auto shows may have, it will still get your gearhead heart pumping. Check it out this weekend only at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
Note: Some Mazda fans may be disappointed to not see the ND Miata, however, since there’s only one or two in existence currently, it’s hard to blame anyone. The 2016 Miata is a hot commodity! (And by that we mean it looks amazing [in images].) You can still romp around in the roomy and beautiful 2015 Miata and check out the full ZoomZoom-fun Mazda lineup.
You are not your mod list, but you are reflected in the fit and finish of your machine. [Read more…]
The 10th edition of the Sports Car Spring Rally took place in April 2012. As part of the tradition; it was held in Maastricht, The Netherlands, at the Novotel. A wide variety of cars were present as usual, varying quite a bit in value as well as in age. It was all about the cars that weekend, and the price of the cars or brand was insignificant.
For me Justin’s Civic is one of the nicest in the Netherlands and he really deserved this interview. He’s installed a lot of rare parts and doubled the horsepower by swapping the original 1.5L engine for a Japanese TYPE-R engine. This is an interview with a really passionate owner of a beautiful ’93 Civic.
The 1979 Honda Civic; first generation of the quintessential Honda classic. Quite a few were killed by the rust devil. This generation Civic was notorious for rusting in less than three years from purchase where salt was used in the winter; even complete cars were bought back by Honda because of this, but here’s one example that survived. It went from original to old-school and back within a few years, but it remains a cute little car. [Read more…]
I think you can call Dick and his wife Jinske real Honda lovers. A collection with four (really beautiful) Hondas proves it. I thought two of them, a Honda Civic Motul replica and a very rare Honda Beat, are really interesting. So I found Dick and this is the result. A nice interview about two really beautiful Hondas!
A few months ago, I was chilling on my balcony (road-view) with my girlfriend. Suddenly I heard a ridiculous sound and I saw a white F16 flying over the main road. After I few seconds I remembered that white F16s don’t exist. That was my first introduction to Lars’ Nissan Silvia S15.
This weekend, we’re in Prescott, Arizona, USA, attending the Prescott Rally, part of the USRC championship. We’re posting pictures to our Gearheads-United Tumblr (GU+) outpost until the battery on the Blackberry dies (which it did about an hour ago). [Read more…]
Todd Williammee of Frederick, Colorado, is an auto tech, tuner, and engine builder. We caught up with him on CarDomain and talked a little bit about why he stuck with the D16, $4 parts causing $2800 in damage, and how the number 13 can be both unlucky and lucky at the same time. [Read more…]
This week was the 64th Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung, or Frankfurt International Autoshow. The autoblogosphere is rank with autowriters showing you all the same pictures and paraphrasing the same press releases. If you’re lucky, your favorite automotive media outlet had boots on the ground there this week, taking original pictures and telling you why the stories matter, how they will impact you, and what makes their coverage newsworthy.

If you know anything about racing in the Honda world, then you’ve also heard these two words: Cortney Green. Mr. Green has been building Honda’s since 1998. Not one, but two of his Civics have reached the 9 second club. He took a minute from wrenching and tuning cars to tell us a bit about himself.
The first new conversionist interview for the new year is another first for EV Gearbox; A motorcycle !
