Euros of 2017 Tech Day at The Petersen

In a different era, the yearly Tech Day car meet used to be a welcoming space for car enthusiasts of all varieties, whether you leaned Japanese or European or whatever. The last two years, though, specifically for the events staged at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, Calif., the outward appeal has been for cars with a J lineage; it is, after all, called the Japanese Cruise-in & Modified Rides Tech Day Meet. But we never stopped inviting other non-Japanese fare from joining us - in our eyes, Tech Day is an all-inclusive celebration, and there should be no barriers preventing like-minded fans from partying with us if they so desire.

This being LA, and the Petersen, we received a pretty varied mix of European cars at the event. We had bunches of BMW - E30, E36, F82 - and Porsche - 911, Cayman - in the mix, but even among the Porsche there were rarities in attendance, like the red 356 in the gallery. In fact, we were intrigued most by the oddballs, and there were a few; the yellow Mark 1 Sprite sports car from British brand Austin-Healey is something you don't see all that often, not least of which because the platform is more than 50 years old. And then there was the smattering of Italian Lancia among the parked display cars - a Fulvia and Appia among them.

Tech Day 2017 boasted a fantastic turnout, with a true cross-section of cars from all around the planet. Peruse our gallery of the Euros from this year's meet to see what else showed up.
