VW Festival - Funny who you meet.

Post by Old Mac Rocco » Mon Aug 19, 2013 9:23 pm

Having a prowl about at the LEEDS VW festival at the weekend and noticed a couple of cars that I thought I knew.
Took some snaps,

Tried to get one of the superb paintwork but it never came out very well. Sorry.

and then went back later to see if anyone was about and luckily enough there was.
Had a lengthy chat (it's amazing how the word scirocco brings people together) so now I can put a face to two of the members on here.
Nice to have a chat with Brunty and his good lady The Interceptor.
Very nice to meet you both and Happy Anniversary.

It was great to meet you too!

We both really enjoyed the show, and I think we're planning on making is an annual event from now on. We should do a combined Scirocco Owners Network and Scirocco UK stand to get some varied cars together.

I took a few pics too, but I think I'd got a wrong setting on the camera, or it was so bright it was confused... Hopefully the excellent google images editor will sort them!

Amazing paintwork on this one, doesn't come out on the photo for some reason, as is often the way with bright red :( Not sure about the wheels though!

Image

Never been too sure about this colour, but this clean and in the sun, it looked amazing. Again though, interesting wheel choice?

Image

And a couple of non-dubs...

Image

Possibly my favourite car there

I wasn't sure what it was, so had to wiki it - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_550 It was completely stunning 8-)
