On Sept. 8th I organized the 'second annual' Multi-Forum Mt. Baker Meet & Cruise. Over 120 cars turned out at Cascade Mall in Burlington, WA to munch on Krispy Kreme donuts provided by H&R Springs and make the two-hour trip to Mt. Baker. The turnout was impressive, with cars showing up including a '72 Datsun 280Z, to a plethora of EVOs, Imprezas, SRT-4s, 350Zs and Civics, and a few R32 & 33 GT-Rs, FDs, E30s, MKIII and MKIV Supras ... and tons more. Nate047 even came up from Portland to photograph the event for an article that will appear in a future issue of a spo-com magazine.

Here are some pictures from Gerald (g2kap1v2) and Scott(3dscott) on http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=2037442&page=3.

-one of my best friend's cars. Also a car going off the street for awhile... this one to have a fresh 2.8L low compression stroker motor built and dropped in over the winter (200k miles on the stock motor, 2k subjected to a harsh harsh life at the hands of am tuner armed with megasquirt and a laptop and a driver with a very heavy right foot)

Basically, everybody began meeting at Burlington Mall (about 15 minutes South of Bellingham) at 10:00AM. There were Scoobies, BMWs, Evos, Supras, SRT-4s, Skylines, Civics, G35s, 350Zs, etc. It was a real multi-forum meet. The first thing of interest was how well behaved and polite everybody was. Unlike some of the Lower Mainland events I'v been to, the attendees were great, interactive and happy to be there. The different groups all meshed well.

At 11:00AM we got back on I-5. The organization was fabulous and they had split the crowd into numbered groups upon arrival and each group was assigned a pace car to follow on the route to Mt. Baker to help moderate behaviour and ensure that everybody got there safely. The pace cars had vinyl decals on the back actually providing directions lol. My group followed a silver STi. It took about 2 hours of cruising and an unexpected stop but we finally got to the top.

The drive was astonishing!!!

The cars were great and it was the best car meet/event/cruise I have ever attended.

I have about 200 shots here:

From abawp on VW Vortex:

Went on a local cruise to Mt Baker and thought the CL would enjoy some of the event as well. All in all, some nice automobiles and a fun drive. This was a multi-forum gathering, with folks from clubsi.com, dtmpower.net, the RSX forum (I forget what its called), myself from vwvortex/TCL, and I am sure several other forums that I am unaware of. This is my first picture post on the CL (at least of my own photography), so I will apologize in advance for my amateur photography (and p-shop) skills. Pictures were taken with a FujiFilm S700 digital camera.

Everyone kept raving about this supra. Supposedly it hit the 900whp mark on the dyno.

Many Evos, even more subies:
