Wasatch Classic XIII

Well, I did one of those things I've always wanted to do yesterday. I put my VW bug in a local VW aircooled only show. That's right I put the car I restored all myself in a carshow. It was fun! A lot of people had nice things to say and a few even voted for my car! I didn't take home the trophey, but it was fun just the same. Here are few pics of the event.


This is my 1961 ragtop




There were a LOT of really nice cars there...like this '64 bus and this '56 bug with a roof rack and tons of excessories...it even had an old period correct Judson supercharger. You don't see those very often! There was even a fantastic '59 Porche that showed up. It wasn't officially in the show, but they let him stay because he is like a "vw aircooled cousin"... and because it was almost flawless and really impressive!!

Nice bug, Lael! Congrats!

your bug looks really good- I bet the best part was to show it off to people who really care about bugs and understand how cool it is.

So that's the infamous Beetle you were always telling me about. It's nicer than you described :) Makes me miss mine... maybe. Nice job on the restoration!
