Geoff recently posted a pic of his old Scirocco. I jazzed it up a bit.
For me this is the best part of H20; aside from the fact that there are far too many little get togethers to attend. We arrived early this year (Monday) so the first few days are full of empty parking lots and non-congested streets. It’s kind of nice; it’s easier to shoot at Taphouse, that’s for sure.
I was loving this TT, so simple, so good.
Yo Dan, why you no have bagged Tiggy yet?
Although my B5 looks dumb with the hood up because the grille is attached to it; it does make bumperless look less awkward. Still, Pre X Evo’s do it for me.
Ya, we know, it’s a VW show; and there are a lot of cool VAG cars in attendance. There are a lot of cool non VAG cars too, and we can’t forget them. They; this STI for example, are largely responsible for what inspires me when I change things on my own car.
Don’t ask me why, but this Allroad reminds me of Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter; only white…with copper wheels…
To end off; a few I got when parked on the side streets of the Ocean side around 45th.
Gill wasn’t sure if this was static or bagged…cut.
Someone we know just bought these
For me, H20i is the strip. I’m not a VW guy. I’m there to cruise up and down Coastal all weekend long. And have the occasional race. Considering Bron’s BMW and my Subie are both slow as balls, he was the only person I’d race. Our first race, I missed third so hard I didn’t even bother searching for it and let off.
Steve is washing off the newly painted E30. Silver RS’ on White looks great. I MAY be biased though. :)
Shits going down when Matt has his trunk open.
Stopped by at the DQ to reminisce about our first H20 trip. LINK>
Caught some rollers and this purple B5 pulled over for a few warnings.
As a primarily VW show it is only fitting that I show you some.
I showed you this mk4 at Spring Fling with Lobster Claws on it; I think I liked those better. They suited the massive Porsche brakes.
There were a few other great mk4s in attendance:
One of my top 5 favorite wheels on probably one of my top 5 favorite mk1s:
I do NOT like mk3s…but there are certainly exceptions to every rule.
The others, all of which were looking great!
This year Vagkraft for me was seen from a much different perspective than usual, and that was the perspective of a vendor. Even though the Pfaff Tuning booth did need attention, I was able to slip away and snap some shots of cars that really stood out to me, so here are my personal favorites.
My all time favorite car of the day. Hats off to the owner.
Have to give props to my bro for winning this year for the third year in a row, killin it!
Sean’s beautiful mk3, we wish you a full recovery my friend.
AirAssisted showed up with their laid out 50′s Ford pickup, showing everyone in the air game how it’s done.
Ladeedub’s City got the air treatment as well, and it was oh so good!
Frankie though not in the show, still creates a buzz everywhere this car goes.
Second favorite to the TT was this Beetle, god I couldn’t get enough of this thing!
You know when there is that one car every year that sticks in your head, and you keep seeing it at all the meets and shows, but never meet the guy/girl…well that is whats happening for me with this E30 M3. (and even with this love, I still didn’t get a full shot of it <– idiot)
Lets not forget Carm’s E30 posted up right next to the M3.
And if Carm is there, you know Manolo is there
Sniped Dave…but he noticed.
Shayan’s beauty B6
Luxury Abstract wheels making an appearance.
All in all another great year for a very chill show. Good friends, good crowd, great prizes and some sweet cars.
Each year this is the local VAG show I look forward to the most. It typically brings a wide array of European beauties and this year did not disappoint.
Pfaff Tuning was the title sponsor once again
I spent some time browsing the Audi’s; it always surprises me how few end up showing, nevertheless they are my favorite part of the show.
More to come soon, I haven’t even touched VW; let alone Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes. I also got some great shots of our own cars, 6 of us were fortunate enough to place!
As Gill said; we have a lot of fun at these “small” customer appreciation BBQ’s. The wide array of cars affords everyone something to love.
For me, it was this 993.
I also spent a good deal of time drooling over these 2 M cars.
Bagged widebody cars? Check.
One of the few cars that actually looks good with a big ass wing.
It was a wet drive, but it seemed as though every time I looked in my rear view, a new car had joined our cruise!
Between Amanda (my other half) and myself, we were able to get some decent rollers. (passanger side shots are hers )
If you don’t see your car you were either too far back from me, it was raining too hard, or the shot did not turn out
Thank you to everyone who tagged along and kept us company on the drive!! It was an awesome cruise. – Matt
Despite the entire day of rain and the long drive the cruise was certainly a success. We had over 20 cars; which despite being tough to coordinate, was a great turnout!
The show itself had a different venue than last year which allowed for full 1/4 mile runs and a better layout for the vendor area. Personally, I think the Mustangs stole the drag race show (despite this being a Euro event).
As always, we had a blast!
The show was certainly not lacking of some serious cars…
A few of my favorite Audi’s, from the internet and real life.
A few non Euro highlights.
