John Hall comes out swinging – “The only “factory” panels left on my WRX are the front doors, and I guess the roof if you want to count that.” For those of us that aren’t comfortably familiar with Subaru’s lineup, such a claim may not be immediately obvious, but that’s exactly what John wants. However, for those in-the-know, the subtleties of John’s build speak volumes. His sedan-bodied wagon leaves almost no bolt left unturned.

Bruce Carr is a quiet man; we stood to the side of the photo shoot, as Kevin Trower and Miller Robers snapped photos of his ’69 2002 – we talked about our love for the classic pint-sized coupes. He’s without a doubt one of H2OI’s most grounded attendees, too. At 33 years old, he’s found his way; he’s happily married, has a three year old son, and owns a contracting business with his father in Crownsville, MD.
H2Oi in Ocean City, Maryland, is easily one of the most anticipated weekends of the year. It is the largest Volkswagen and Audi show North America has to offer, and with the growth of the European car scene, it also offers one of the biggest gatherings of BMWs, Porsches, and lately, even the likes of Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, and others.
Racing games are a genre that has long been split into two categories: simulators and arcade racers. Simulators tend to offer the ability to blast laps on a race track, and the fun of the game is often found in shaving milliseconds off of lap times, always striving to get that last percent extra out of the car. The physics tend to be the primary focus, with the cars having the ultra realistic handling characteristics us car enthusiasts love.
With the last day of Summer drawing to an end, many of us are preparing for the trip to Ocean City Maryland for H2o International. Whether you’re making last minute adjustments to your car, or packing up for the weekend of festivities, this is the week that we all look forward to each year.
