My annual donation to the Larz Anderson Auto Museum was $1830 this year. They also reported a paid gate of 550 people, which all goes directly to the museum. Thanks to everyone for showing up!

Be sure to mark your calendars for October 6th, 2019 to attend next year's show.

Hey that's us in the green westy! Our spot by the lighthouse was probably the best spot in the whole place.

Thanks to everyone for coming to the show. We had 183 show cars and at least 20 vendors. I saw some old friends and made some new ones. I was even interviewed about the "VW" scene by someone for a project they were doing.

Here are some details:

We had 41 over-niters at the pre-show gathering in Salem, MA. And several day-visitors too. Most of them travelled by caravan to the show on Sunday. Some just come for the camping.
I also pre-registered 33 vehicles in Salem, so the caravan drivers were able to breeze into the show, set-up and chill, with no waiting in line to register.

That was our caravan from the Salem, MA pre-show gathering. Looks great!

In the second video you are behind my friend Lucas' '69 Fastback.

Awesome show! Glad the weather cooperated this year. Thanks Stan and all others that help put this show on every year. I love the drive there and back almost as much as the show, the leaves are at their peak colors this time of year.

Really looking forward to it this year !
Wasn't able to make it last year. Mad

Looks like it's going to be a nice warm day, and any rain is going to hold off until later (fingers crossed).

I was even able to talk a few of the guys that I worked with at the VW dealer back in the late '70's early '80's into finally coming along with me this year (Pats aren't playing Very Happy, and they've never been to transporterfest before) so it's going to be a real blast for us !
Thanks again Stan for making this this whole thing happen every year !!

On Sunday at the show, we can use volunteer help at our registration table. Please consider giving us an hour or so of your time and we will put you to work registering show cars, help with parking, selling T-shirts and raffle tickets, and people's choice vote tabulation.

If you can volunteer to help, just let us know Sunday at the registration table.

Thanks, Stan

I'm in! Bent Water Brewery in Lynn is very highly rated. They have 11-13 beers on tap. There is also Notch Brewery & Tap Room in Salem, 2 miles from
The campground. We can decide as a group that morning which one to hit...or both.

Im trying to work up some interest in a leisurely bicycle ride to a brewery or two . John has put out a thought of a ride to one in Lynn. Who knows the area and can shed some thoughts on what brewery or breweries would be of interest to visit from Salem? Who might be in? or suggestions? Thx. ---R---
