When a group of Salt Lake City auto enthusiasts decided they wanted to celebrate their love of European automobiles, Josh Clason brought along his Depth of Speed cameras to find out what it's like starting up a new car show from scratch. The resulting footage combines Clason's sharp visual style, great accompanying music, and good looking machines.

A Car Show Born tells the story of Jordan Melville and his friends bringing their car-show vision to life. We only wish we could have been there to dissuade them from calling it the Euro SL,UT Fest. A nice cross-section of Euro metal showed up to be captured by Clason's cameras, so click past the jump to watch the video.

      Nice video. Some great cars in there but I never understood the whole "hellaflush" look. What's the point of riding on your sidewalls!? It isn't safe and you look like a retard doing it.

      I don't understand where all the hate is coming from. I think its different and quite entertaining actually. If you don't like it then dont watch it!

      I'm sure the show was pretty cool, but I couldn't help but to notice the dominance of German vehicles. Does Euro mean German and a handful of English cars only? Don't get me wrong, I have a family full of Bimmer freaks, air cooled VW nuts, and P-car fanatics, but I would have loved to see some other marquees thrown in as well. Volvo, Alfa, Renault, etc.

        Germans have always dominated the European imports here. For every Jag that is sold there is at least 10 vw's 5 bimmers and 3 mercs.

      Depth of Speed is soooo weak

      So many cartards with 'hella flush' look got the painfully slow sweep feature. LETS ALL DRIVE ON OUR SIDEWALLS! SMALLEST TIRE ON BIGGEST RIM POSSIBLE PLZ!!!11!11ONE. Drivers test should include "Do you like Hella Flush - Yes / No" and if someone circles yes, they get banned for life for having a license. Obviously a lie detector will be necessary because everyone who likes hella flush are dirt bags.

      They call this series depth of speed but every video feels like a slow boat to China.

        You're right...When you're finished watching Battlestar Gallactica in your mom's basement, put some pants on and pick up your step dad's camera and start making some real video's featuring your go-fast cars. Please, we're all just as bored as you. You show this Josh Clason who's boss

      I try very hard to have a "to each their own" motto when it comes to cars... but I look at that black Merc and just can't help but think, "why, WHY did you do that to such a nice car?"

        "Why would you do that to such a nice car?" That car, and many others like it (the infamous E28 "Rusty" for an example), are almost always far from the nice cars people wish they were. Usually, they are abused, ignored, and left to rot in someone's garage or some car lot. If you were to pick one of these cars up, usually very cheaply, and given the task to restore it to a pristine, original condition, the cost would be ridiculous. Those who want these cars in such conditions will pay a little more for a car in better condition that will cost less to restore, which still leaves the neglected cars. Think of it this way; Those "ruined" cars that have no chance at going back to their original glory have been given another chance, another life. It's a different role and one that will take some time getting adjusted to, but it will be a learning experience. In the end, a car is driven and an owner is happy. Who could ask for more?

        Many euro events are more about show then speed. They are laid back and awesome.
