About Motor Union
The idea to make a new kind of car show began with the 5&A Dime crew sitting around with a bunch of friends. Those friends just so happened to have really nice cars. With the brand and clothing boutique “5&ADime” in full throttle, the original idea was to create brand awareness by sponsoring their friend’s rides.
What would one day turn into The Motor Union began with daily driver meet ups in front of the shop on the corner of 8th & G in downtown San Diego. Before they knew it, 5&A Dime was hosting its first unofficial car show, and it was as unofficial as it gets. They saved space on 8th Ave. not with permits, but by blocking off parts of the street with red cones. It was guerrilla, but it got the job done.
What started as a casual meet up of friends has grown into a unique event that is held once a year bringing together more than 3,000 people!
Moving into car culture was a natural progression for 5&A Dime since they had daily conversations with customers about cars. They wanted to break the stereotype of traditional car shows and bring something unique to the table. Making a car into an extension of yourself is a positive hobby and lifestyle, this is the vision…
Motor Union is more than a car show.
It is a fusion of men’s apparel and car culture, thus bringing a creative style to the event.
It is a mishmash of all cars, bringing together different lifestyles.
It is unique, held at exotic venue locations.
And it will always be free of charge!
This is what Motor Union is. This is what we want to maintain. We hope to share our culture and expand our community with others that visit our fair city.
Expansion is inevitable.
Let’s grow this Motor Union together!
