Mazda at the 2016 SEMA Show

Mazda has long been associated with racing and the “Zoom-Zoom” mentality lives on as far as we can tell at the 2016 SEMA show. If you are unaware of what SEMA is it’s, “the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. It draws the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center.” We spent two days cruising around the show looking for the very best that the aftermarket world has to offer. We wanted to check out what the newest and hottest trends in automotive tuning have become, and we can say Mazda is right up there with the best. While Ford may have dominated the show with some off-road, super lifted and crazy trucks, Mazda could be seen by just looking a little lower to the ground.

Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru Rally Fest | Ojibwe Forests Rally Kickoff

If you didn’t know that our very own Scott Putnam of Minnetonka Subaru was a rally co-driver of a 2013 Subaru WRX STI, maybe Travis Pastrana, David Higgins and Lauchlin O’Sullivan coming to town was a friendly reminder. The Subaru Rally Team USA drivers and crew stopped by our dealership to show off their amazing rally Subaru’s and mingle with some fans. It was a fun filled night that also played host to an all Subaru car show, and plenty of food and snacks for all. The best part, Travis, David & Lauchlin put down some lap times in Dirt 3 and had anyone who dared challenge them see if they could beat their best times! If you want to check out all these cars first hand running full-out in a rally event this weekend, head up to Detroit Lakes, MN for the Ojibwe Forests Rally! Check out the videos below for a recap of the event and an interview with Travis Pastrana!

Sure it’s great to take the kids to the Minnesota Zoo and watch them experience all the animals, but half the time they are just running away and you aren’t able to see anything for yourself. Well, now is your chance to see all the animals during adult night at the zoo. You can even grab a drink and some food while you’re there and experience a special keeper talk at 6:30 & 7:30 p.m. at the Lakeside Terrace about different animals.

Victoria Classic Car Night – Wednesday, August 3rd

 victoria

This Wednesday night hundreds of classic cars will descend on downtown Victoria, Minnesota, for Victoria Classic Car Night. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this show is a great reason to get out during the middle of the week and see an eclectic mix of cars that you might not see at your typical show. It’s looking like it will be a hot one weather wise, so I recommend bringing a convertible.

Flying Legends of Victory Tour – July 26th through July 31st

Having spent my fair share of time breaking (I really have a knack for it) and subsequently repairing vintage vehicles, I’m always a bit baffled at how airplanes exist. Particularly vintage airplanes. With this in mind, it is really quite remarkable to get up close to legendary warplanes and see their inner mechanical workings. The Flying Legends of Victory Tour provides such an opportunity and if you’re brave enough to take to the skies in a vintage plane they’ll even take you for a ride in a B-17 Flying Fortress.
