Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride 2014

The Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride is a must attend every year for me. It’s a laid back atmosphere with beautiful Porsches of all years, great conversation with owners, builders, restorers, and friends, and good coffee and food all right on the main strip in the little West Vancouver village. It’s an event not to be missed if you are any bit into Porsches, which of course, I am.

Italian Car Show at Lonsdale

With a limited amount of time on Sunday, I decided to stop by the beginnings of the Father’s Day Italian Car Show at Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver before hitting the Dundarave Porsche Show & Ride. In hindsight, I should’ve done things the other way around, as the Italian collectors seemed a bit slower on the arrival then the Porsche guys who were out in full force between 10 and 11am over in West Vancouver. There were only about 15 cars out when I arrived at Lonsdale at 10am, but my were they gorgeous. The Maserati 3500 GT Superleggera and the Alfa Romeo 1600Z pictured below were two that caught my eyes right away. No Ferrari’s or Lamborghini’s had arrived yet, which was actually kind of nice as it allowed me to focus in closely on the details of just a few cars, the Alfa Romeos, the Fiats, Maseratis, and Lancias. I love the details, I love seeing all the interesting little things that these more unique cars came with. Todays vehicles just can’t compare in any way.

Leavenworth Drive 2014

We took the casual way. A quiet drive in a Dakar Yellow BMW M3 down South to the Bavarian town of Leavenworth, Washington. We arrived early, enjoyed drinks, and Bavarian bratwurst, and took in the sights, sounds, and smells of the Mountain surrounded village as the hundreds of european automobiles rolled in.

Audi Downtown Vancouver Exclusive Grand Opening Party

One week ago on a sunny June 5th evening Audi and the Dilawri Group of Companies celebrated the grand opening of a gorgeous new dealership, Audi’s new flagship showroom, Audi Downtown Vancouver. The subtle, sporty and sophisticated modern two floor building on Burrard and West 2nd features a design that is unmistakably Audi, and much like it’s cars, will stand the test of time well.

Complimentary valet parking, a very friendly welcoming party, a good selection of shiny S and RS Audi models on display, and wines along side Bollinger champagne from Cru Wine Selections were certainly a delight to be taken in, and if that wasn’t enough, the hors d’oeuvres served up by the attentive and talented staff of Hawksworth Restaurant were absolutely superb.

A large screen showcased many of Audi’s models throughout the evening and played background to a host of remarkable individuals. Emcee Zack Spencer(Driving Television), Ajay Dilawri(President of the Dilawri Group of Companies), Martin Sander(Senior Director of Sales, Audi North America), and Wolfgang Hoffman(President, Audi Canada) all spoke of the past successes and future endeavours of the Audi brand, and of the effort involved to bring this particular project to fruition. Mayor Gregor Robertson gave a video address welcoming the new showroom to Vancouver, and Audi Downtown Vancouver premiered a short film put together by Barbershop Films showcasing the new building as well as an aggressive Audi R8 in action. Canadian jazz musician Matt Dusk helped to progress the evening into full celebration as the setting sun cast a golden glow throughout the showrooms. The crowd displayed a good deal of enthusiasm all throughout the evening, revealing that the new flagship showroom is and will continue to be well received in the Vancouver community.

Volkswagen GTI’s on Display at the 2014 Vancouver International Auto Show

I was recently commissioned by the producers of the VW Magazine of Canada, Volkswagen Canada’s official magazine, sent to 120,000 customers across the country. I was asked to photograph the display of GTI’s at the Vancouver International Auto Show. The display featured GTI’s from the 1st generation up to the newest 7th generation. The photos were used in the just released Spring/Summer 2014 issue of the magazine to showcase the cars featured in the booth along with write-ups about the owners of each car.
