As much as I like American hot rods I also enjoy other foreign cars like the vintage Volvos you have seen on this web site. Today we are going to visit a VW meet and see what all the fuss is about.
It was a cloudy but dry day for this event and I was very excited as that makes for great photography. I must say I was disappointed to find out that the meet was held inside a parking garage with incredible poor lighting. It was almost impossible to shoot these cars with the only light available was what came in from the side openings. So I am going to start this segment with an apology for the crappy pictures.
Also, the folks that arranged the show did not provide a name and model sheet to display so I can’t tell you the specific model year or the owner’s name that should get the credit.
Oh well, here are some cool German cars:
See what I mean about the light? Not even the Polaroid filter could master this.
The swap meet was just like any other swap meet except for the prices. There is some serious hysteria in certain must have VW parts.
The roof rack and vintage luggage thing has almost been overdone. Cool, but I have seen it now. Beautiful car, great colors.
Now wer’e talking! Buses are cool. It seems mandatory that they all have to sit on the ground like the suspension is broken.I understand the look but in an effort to “personalize” the vehicle they all look the same.
This thing is interesting. Nice workmanship but it must offer a choppy ride with such short wheel base.
Bugs everywhere!! Get the exterminator!
I dig! Me want!
I like everything except the steering wheel. Your Humble Editor is allergic to billet and there is NO cure for this. The only thing is to stay away and not touch it!
Very nice bus though.
OK, I admit it…this was my favorite. A totally stock restored 1965 Bug. Sitting tall and proud just like it was designed. Love the color too. I would drive this all day long.
Super clean Golf or Rabbit depending in what country you reside in. Nice!
As usual, the parking lot offered some cool rides. Besides, better light !
Baja This !! Someone got creative. Why not?
Here we go again…another slammed one. I like it though, really like the fender mirrors.
As much as I like the multi/mega window buses i am kinda partial to these utilitarian looks buses. Looks good on those wheels as well.
Wheel detail. I dig the fact that it is not uber polished, just all business. I sure have a lot of opinions, don’t I ? Hell yes.
I end most of my event reports with: “It was a good day” because it usually IS a good day. I can’t remember a car, motorcycle or hot rod event that was ever “bad” so you may see that phrase again.
