I was thinking while working on my car, its summer and there are lots of shows, races, club meets, local pub meets, cruise nights etc etc  and lots of us must be taking our aircooled VWs out and enjoying them now summer is here, I know this is cal look lounge but most of us enjoy seeing Aircooled VWs being used and enjoyed as intended so even if its a stocker or vintage performance, whatever let us know about as long as its not a rusty dragging along the ground dangerous piece of sh*t   Wink


So come on tell us where you took your car, if you got pictures even better and if was a non VW meet what other cool stuff was there?

Might as well keep this thread the same as "What did you get in the mail today" etc etc.

Didn't take my Beetle but I went to the Le Mans Classic last weekend. Nice cars all round as usual and the best weather so far this year. Loads of old aircooled Porsches and some nice Bugs, Buses and Ghias.

 I and two friends went to "Drag Nite " in South Carolina for the event. My friend and brother John Toomey ran a personal best with a 6.41 1/8th in his 2050 lb car( 1.20 on video, yellow bug racing dragster) . I unfortunately got too greedy on my tune up and cracked a cylinder . The event was fantastic and we had alot of fun , met some new friends and visited with old ones. Mike McCarthy

pretty good for us to drive, a bit less for the organisation.
because of the bad weather only a car of 10showed up, this meant we could do a run come back to the start and do a other one directly. We did like 20-25 runs in one afternoom!
track condition was bad due to the rain, but we had fun and where able to go al to the end of the track (1mile) because they didn't closed it in the middle.

That cab is very nice Russell - tell us more!

I drove my Beetle last weekend too. It went up the drive, reversed onto the front garden while I moved some stuff in the garage, then one of the 145s burst so I put it back on the drive to sit for another three years.
