Then Trudge got through judging. We left an optimistic gap for any other B1s but it wasn't meant to be :(

So we gathered together :)

This creation was once a B1 :( But now is B1 in body only, with all air cooled mechanicals underneath. I'd say the body will end up being scrapped within the week, it's something made just for the show:

So then I was called to take Frank to a staging area and wait for the presentation. I took my camera and snapped shots of the winning cars and other ones that were around there.

Then we were on the move, so I snapped random shots out the windows as we rolled along:

Wow what a beautiful place and beautiful cars. You guys did a great job. Too bad not many B1s showed up. At least you three had the front row seat for your cars. The three different colors look very cool.
Many congratulations to the three of you FTD, Trudge and John for showing up and prepping your cars to look like new.
And of course for the race car as well.
:woohoo:

Last year's record 7 B1s was a minor miracle and I wasn't expecting to repeat it this year :D I had hoped the B1 Passat for sale on Ebay would come along too but no go there :( Still, I talked to a couple of Passat owners who may feel inspired enough to take theirs out of the garage for next year.

Your car is so cool, Trudge :) I just love that colour and wheel combo so much.

Video of the big day is finally here! Youtube took forever to process this overnight. Set it to HD and full screen, we left Gopros running on the racecar, and I wandered around with one on a monopod for some jerky footage :D
