This is the second year of the Scavenger Hunt here in Milwaukee. Although I was busy last year during the rally, I heard absolute great things from everyone who participated. This year it was decided that the proceeds from the Rally would go to our good friend Vicky who is dealing with some health issues. As soon as I heard that they wanted to help Vicky out, I decided that I wanted to help. A quick call to my friend Stephen who was hosting the event, and we decided that the rally would officially become the Midwest Automotive presents: 2016 Scavenger Rally for Vicky. Not only did I feel that this was great opportunity to help get our name out hosting an event very different than the typical car show or meet, but more importantly to help out a dear friend. Vicky has done so much for us here at Midwest Automotive, from proofreading articles and editing photos for guest contributors to allowing myself to help host one of the largest import car shows in southeast Wisconsin, that I was going to help out anyways. It was a perfect example of a WIN-WIN for everyone.

WCEC SOUTH WI SHOW

There are very few shows held in this certain part of the state, and it was a good refresher. The WCEC Southern WI show was held in Janesville, Wisconsin. The conditions for the show couldn’t have been better. It was a comfortable 75 degrees all day, and had plenty of cloud cover and sunlight to make any photographer happy. The drive down was beautiful; All back-roads through the small hills of southern Wisconsin. When I got to the show, I met up with Alex and we went around the show videoing and taking photos.

Oh, how good it feels to have a meet at Miller Park again. The United Projects End of Summer Meet was held early on a Sunday morning. I had just come off a dual photoshoot a few miles down the road from the show. At the time I arrived, there was already a substantial amount of cars already lined up inside the lot. It was good to see out of state cars showing up for an added bit of freshness.

TOP SHELF 2016

The next installment of the Top Shelf meet was not held in the usual spot in downtown Appleton, Wisconsin. Instead, this time it was held at an airstrip outside of town. Airstrip meets are always a cool venue and aren’t used often in the local scene. I went up early before the show with a few friends to get ready for the meet.

Intro by: Andrew Smith

Introduction by Andrew: This past weekend had two awesome shows in the Milwaukee area. Brandon was down in Kentucky for Import Alliance, and I was booked with Family plans, so I used it as the perfect opportunity to get two more guest contributors some articles on the website. I put up a Facebook post, and within an hour or two had over a dozen people reach out to me asking to contribute. I wish I could have had everyone help out, but I was only able to have two people. I want to first thank everyone who reached out, your support and willingness to contribute is amazing. It’s all of you guys who make this possible. Next I want to thank both Nick and Matthew for providing the stories and the photos. Their willingness to help out is what you see below. Check out the below for Matthew’s coverage of the 2016 Capture the Culture show, hosted by Jay Baum!
