With an attendance record of over 7,500 people, the event continues to be the largest Subaru gathering in the world. But have no fear, because tomorrow is Big Northwest, Subie Events LLC’s West Coast version.

I attended Wicked Big Meet for my second time and debuted the Baja’s new paint job. I also shot Facebook Live videos of Subaru’s “new” BRZ Series.Yellow and my ride-along with Global Rally Cross driver, Bucky Lasek (who will also be at Big Northwest).

Now when I say that there were Subarus of every model and style, I’m really not kidding. There were off-roading and mudding Subies...

It’s obviously not a Subaru, but who wouldn’t want to see Prime Motoring’s RB26-Powered Scion FRS in the flesh.

There was even an auto-cross competition on the actual track where the winner took home a trophy and cash prize.

Whether you’re a fanboy of Bucky Lasek from his skateboarding days of the past or his current competitive driving, you also had a chance to get his autograph and win a ride-along with him in the S207.

As a classic Subaru fan (I prefer the stuff from the 70s and 80s), these shows don’t offer much for me. I went to the Northwest Subaru Show back in ‘08 with my ‘83 GL 4WD wagon. Those of us with older cars got stuck in what I called “the museum area” and were largely ignored by everyone except the 10 or so people who had brought older cars. These shows are mostly about showing off your mods on Imprezas, which is OK, I just wish there was a classic Subaru show out there somewhere.
