Volksfest – Recap

After a mislead detour and repairing a MK2 shift linkage at a gas station, we paid our dollar and entered Volksfest. The backdrop for this show was filled will medieval looking buildings and a full sized pirate ship. It offered something for everyone. In the mood for some local brewed beer? Potato wedges? Nice looking Volkswagens? Volksfest has you covered.

The show area was organized via ‘Park as you arrive’, which meant if you drove in with a group of cars you could park next to each other, giving you a very convenient way to organize large lawn chair discussions. The swap meet was filled with good prices and rare parts. If you knew the VW marketplace well, you could of easily turned a profit afterwards.

The show area was an even amount of Watercooled and Aircooled cars, with no lack of great looking cars in both classes. Such as this clean MK3 Jetta, a slammed Passat,, and a perfectly color matched VR6 Corrado

Volksfest isn’t one of the biggest shows on the year but it’s definitely one of the better ones.

Recap: Show & Go

It was a cloudy day in Englishtown but the turnout overall was pretty good. The Air-Cooled section was smaller than the previous years. Maybe they were scared of the possibility of rain, or possibly attending a Subaru GTG. The racing was small as it is at most VW events. However, their were a few very fast cars, getting in the low 11′s and 10 second ranges. German Squad didn’t host the show this year so the lack of club music blasting the entire time was much appreciated. The club who hosted it did an excellent job. (Sorry I forgot their name!)

The real question is, should you of gone, if you didn’t? I’d say no. The cost of just a spectator admission was up to $20. This felt more like a $10 event. What will Waterfest cost, $40 per spectator? Also, if you arrived late (like I did), due to the parking lot setup, you had to park in the back on top of muddy gravel.

That’s all for now. See you next time!
