VW Flight 12 (more planes and VWs!)

Yesterday was a beautiful day for getting Moby out of the garage and heading out for some time immersed in the local VW scene.  Sponsored by a local VW cruising club, VW Flight shows are held on the first Sunday in May in conjunction with the first of the season Flying Circus Airshow.  We’ve attended the past two years and always have a good time.  Since this show is small, the chance to talk with owners about their cars is easier than at a lot of other shows.  I like the ability to make connections, not just for sources of good mechanical or machine shop work, but advice and ideas too.  Of course the airshow doesn’t hurt either.

Moby setup and hanging out!

This was my favorite car at the show.  An absolutely stunning '69 Type III Squareback.

Can't do that in a VW!

If you look closely at the lower right wing, you'll see a wing-walker dangling under the leading edge.

We managed to score a top 25 trophy which, like the others, will live in the kids rooms.  I don't get it, who does all the VW work anyway!!!
