I wish I was showing the car!!! i leave for Oregon that morning and can only stop by for a couple of hours Rolling Eyes . So I will have to be a spectator this year. How's the Canadian vw show in august? I've never been. tried to go last year but got lost and stuck in traffic for several hours. It sucked!

The show in Canada is great. It's all VWs (air and water). I've been there the past 4 years and never a disappointment. Hopefully I will have my bug finished by then and we can head up together. I'm going to get the word out to see if anyone else in the area wants to go as a group.

BEAUTIFUL! Check out my thread for pics of the Ghia I just bought. First order of the day is to drive it home, and then wash and wax it. Wink
