Here’s some interesting information pertaining to last month’s OCTO event, Straight from Erik Koplien.

The official count of 342 early buses by first raffle. Surpassing even our best June event. The vendors were up with 105 in attendance. The normal average at any event is between 50-60. Spectators were also up at 1800 per ticket count. 1200-1500 is average. We had some international visitors as well. However with travel restrictions being what they are, we didn’t have as many. These are all OCTO records for sure.

Any of you guy’s who were out there saw this first hand. Also got to witness folks flipping out on Lind-O-Calrisian’s 1950 Panel

This shot was taken by Shin Wantanabe – HOT VW’S Fame.

Just wait to see how big things get before Hessich. It will be off the hook.

I hope all this plague thing cools off big time!! With all of this stay home stuff and no official events happening ......... the time leading towards HO21 will be INSANE!! It will keeping boiling until that weekend comes! Let's all keep our fingers crossed and if all goes well .... we'll all congregate at the greatest VW show on earth!!

By running, I mean it gets ‘driven’ at least every 3 years.

Wonderful picture of a great looking panel. Especially with the logo of my hometown on it. And with the small Stuttgart escutcheon on the rear hatch (what is the right term for that, escutcheon or emblem or...?)
Thanks. I am happy to represent your wonderful town on my bus. Many great things come out of Stuttgart and Zuffenhausen.

Emblem, or crest or sticker would be correct. Thanks for not calling it a Ferrari sticker. Wink

They are both correct. Either is good in my book. It is an emblem that could be considered a coat of arms.

Have you considered simply starting with a nicer bus? I don't know what your skills are, but the race is easier if you can see the finish line. If you are not a runner, don't start off doing a marathon.

How do I get tickets to the sold out events?


JDot as a longtime affiliate we've already reserved some back stage passes for you. Having a monster bd truck like yours does have it's privileges. Hit me up if you need some swag though. Luckily our Cunado Wear manufacture sent us U.S. sizes including XXL and XXXL's so we've got our big boys covered (and connected!)
