Post Benton Park festivities and VW Bus show...Oct 3rd
Hi all,

Just heard it featured in an ad on KHDX community radio, the Benton Park event will be on October 3rd, 2015 with the VW show being held from noon to 6pm, other festivities going on long into the night! Great collection of old VW Buses as well as other VW models, great local food and beer, lots of live music, etc! Don't miss it! I'm off and will be bringing something old and VW to hang out in with all my homies on the grass in the park...

I will be there. Not sure what I'm driving yet. I'll make that decision in the morning.

Looks like great weather for the show at Benton Park this afternoon. High will be around 59 degrees, so bring warm clothes and cold beer!

Great show, nice turnout of old VWs! Always a good, small but cozy event. Lots of good friends enjoying old VWs! I just wish they would NOT open it up to other types of cars, if that keeps up I'll eventually stop going to this one. Overall a fun time.

I enjoyed seeing the two Oval bugs, that '54 with the 3-fold Sunroof with the original interior was very cool, and Frank's Horizon Blue Oval sedan with the Okrasa motor was as usual spectacular! Lots of nice old Split Buses too! I got brave and drove my freshly restored '59 Double-Cab to the event. Got some real "pucker-factor" going within me while driving it all the way there on the Interstates cruising at 50 to 55 mph in the slow lane with my "slow moving vehicle" magnetic sign on the back tailgate! Fun times!

Who took photos? Post 'em!

Bill
