Totally lame show, not a single D to see, not any really outstanding cars this year, Maybe a white bentley, or the champ white NSX-R. And for 30 bones this year I think I was ripped off. I didn't even stay to see Shawn Kingston or Richboy. Only about 300 cars this year. Definetly not like years past where the had to turn down applicants due to space limitations. It was Bunk

Northwest HIN's are not as good as CA ones... Next year I know I will have 2 D's there at least.. My Pro Street CRX and the Street Performance Sedan.... Along with many other quick drag cars from my camp....

The car show scene is definitely losing steam the past few years. HIN isn't making it any better with their crazy 30 dollar prices! But the thing is , here in the bay its either HIN or a much smaller car show JDM Theory. We don't have too many options for car shows =(

Not in CA and on the eastcoast.. Its on fire still.. It seems that nobody up here in the Northwest is very serious about thier cars as other areas and States... People up here think that I/H/E is built. So chrome wheels and underglows is custom???? It whack up here. Wait til next year....

Dude what in the hell are you talking about??? Have you been to the HIN's in CA or anywhere on the Eastcoast??? It is not the same as it is up here at all. Most guys/girls up here think that their daily driver is a show car.... Thats not the case in most other places. They have trailer queens for these kinds of shows... People up here have a different perspective of what is "Show" quality.... Where was your show car if eveyones car was so horrible? Did you make the effort to even show your ride??? Or you just went to talk shit?

Hey Don how long have you been up here from CA? Lots of people up this way aren't of the opinion just cuz its from or how its done on the east coast or in Cali it gets extra "cool" points I value your thoughts and input on the site and I am not trying to be a dick so please don't take me that way,but maybe its just a perspective thing. I didn't go to HIN so maybe I'm talking out my ass but from my experience the street/hotrod shows are very nice and the import stuff not as much.
PLEASE don't take offense with me cause none was meant my D-series brother

No offense taken at all. I have been up here almost 2 years... People up here have a different perspective and thats cool . But for some noob to come on here and blast the show is all wrong. I am not sayiing that the show sucked. But I boubt this kid even has a car worthy of going to the show.. But his typing sure makes it seem like he is a pro.... 12 year old noobs dont need to be on here running their mouth. When they have nothing to stand on.

This guy is talking alot of crap on a show that he went to go see. Not attend. And he is blaming promoters.. As far as I know, HIN has been here around the same time every year for the last few years. Promoters have nothing to do with the style of cars at all.

Thanks for the compliment though.. :TU:

Yeah,
when I saw the $30 price tag for tickets,
I said "fuck that"
and I stayed home and got durnk :p

But I agree, from what I can tell, Cali type shit is a whole 'nother world.

I mean, just look at some of the CA guys that do their massively meticulous builds with FULL body restoration (inside and out), Kswaps, full wire tuck etc, etc. (<- and those are 'street cars')

not many import enthusiasts up here on that level.
Personally, I love that shit, but could never afford it. lol.

i personally had a great time at the show. i didn't see more than a few cars there that i couldn't appreciate. there was very little rice. i think it's really cool that there are that many people here that put that kind of love into their car. maybe they don't have a ton of ridiculous money to throw at their ride. who cares. not everybody can build a true show car. not everybody wants to. i'm just glad to see that many people that really take pride in what they love.

agreed on the promotors, its powered by demand... but i gotta say same time my ass. last year it was near the end of september. not to mention i was going to go this year and even scheduled vacation for it... i had to schedule in late january early february... and the HIN site at that time said it was in september... next thing i know my vacation is end of september and the show is early august. that bit of misinfo screwed me a wee bit. as for a different perspective on cars, im guessing its close to how it is here- they love their classics and muscle with a good dose of 4x4. over here the import scene has literally died. where once i saw dozens of nicer imports, now there are zero. no joke, not one car of any quality. seriously if i get my cars body straight and the go fast bits done, ill have one of the nicer imports again.
