The good people at Schlafly brewery are letting us take over their parking lot again this year. They are opening up the front lot and letting us have access to the whole thing hope to see all of you guys out there.


Pass on the good word

So is this just a "Thing" show or just a catchy name for the spring show for all vintage VW's?

"...or two". There ya go, I fixed that for ya! Yeah, like you're going to stop at two!

I'll be bidding to get that weekend off in my flight schedule. I got screwed (not literaly) in a broken MD-80 in Denver during the last event, and really want to make it to Russ's show this time. Fingers crossed!

I'm off and will be there. That is a hell of a coin flip bill. Looks like the weather is good(it's early).

Good thing there is no rivers for me to cross to get to the show! Current Mississippi forecast is 1/10 of an inch from getting in our shop door. I'm getting there early this time, damn near didn't have a place to park last fall after arriving 1/2 hour late.

Yesterday I was off and able to attend a growing and fairly new St. Louis region all VW Show called the "Spring Thing" hosted by Russ and Jody from Air-Cooled Antiques. I decided to drive the Double-Cab to this fun show.

Image

The show was held on the grounds of the Schlafly Bottleworks (Microbrewers) in Maplewood, MO. Awesome Springtime weather, great hosts in both the VW Club and the folks at Schlafly's, a great menu of food and tasty microbrews, live music and a packed parking lot of 100 older VWs! Lots of great friends were hanging out together, you get the picture!

When the awards were handed out, several of our local VW nuts were selected for honors, and at the very end, I was a bit shocked to have my 1959 DC presented with the "award growler/bottle" (complete with a fill-up of my choice) for the "Best in Show".

It was so nice to be honored for this old Transporter and all the years and time we've sank into her refresh. Thanks to all my buddies and everyone for their attendance, and for this honor that made this cool event even more memorable!

Okay everybody, post up your favorite "Spring Thing" pictures! What a bummer for you if you missed this show...
