Bump! It's getting closer! And this year is the 40th anniversary of the Passat. We should gather together and celebrate!

Looking foward to it :) , do we have many B1s going this year?

From what I can tell so far, it will be you, me, John with his green TS, Poida with his Fox and maybe Alex with his Fox. Hoping for more! We're going to be in the same area we were parked in last year, in front of the grandstand. I'm bringing a big banner and I'll tie it to the winners podium which is behind that area. It's raised so the banner will be visible.

Can't wait! :woohoo: Spending the next two days getting Carlos the Rok ready! Frank and Bluey are all ready bar a final coat of show glaze. It's a saga every year :laugh:



Just checked the bureau website:
24. Cloudy. The chance of isolated showers later in the day. Winds northerly 25 to 35 km/h turning northwesterly 15 to 20 km/h during the morning.

Eep! Just don't rain in the morning, damn you! Late rain I can live with. It's a change from usually being high thirties, but then the show's usually on in late November.

I am also hoping the owner of this brings it along. I told him about the show when I let him know the calendar was done



He expressed interest in bringing it along, in the hope of selling it. It's September in the 2014 calendar.

Oh I just remembered! Craig from VW Magazine is rumoured to be bringing his B1 variant! The green one :) So we'll have at least one wagon. Hopefully.

He comes down from QLD for the show every year :) In previous years he's brought various Mk1 Golfs. But he's allegedly bringing his B1 this time. Which will be handy; I can take photos of it for the calendar!

There's always a few that come from SA for the show, they can make it a cavalcade!

I'm washing Carlos the Rok today. Bloody hell is it hard work :D Step ladders involved. The factory brake pads annoy the crap out of me as they turn the front wheels black very quickly, and leave a dust that's damned hard to get off. So going to get some dustless brake pads for the feller.

So far he's had a rinse, and two rounds of hand washing with soap, he was very dirty. Dripping dry on an incline now to get the tray dried out, about to go hand dry him then start on the waxing. Serious business!

NSW is on fire all over. I hope you can get through safely, Trudge.

Eeep, I hope you make it out of there. But if the fire's that close, should you guys be going?


For those not in the know, there's 100 different bushfires burning across Trudge's state right now :(

It's pretty horrifying stuff, with many fires still out of control

Just hoping Trudge makes it through safely. It appears the main highway leading to Victoria is open, the Hume.

We arrived this afternoon, smoke was across the highway south of Sydney but it remained open. There was also a lot of smoke around home this morning but it has cleared this evening & the nearby fires have eased thankfully :cheer:
