In 2006 a group of VW/Audi enthusiasts saw a need for a car show in the Portland area. The first PWL was in Blue Lake Park and started with 50 cars and 3 sponsors. Through the years the show grew and has become the largest and most anticipated European car show in the Pacific Northwest.

In 2008 PWL moved to it’s current home at Woodburn Dragstrip. We have continued to expand the show with fun events like drag racing, a burn out contest, vanagon cram, and the infamous car bash.
