Volkswagen Invasion

(Once again this is a post that should have been done last June/July but oh well I hope you enjoy it.)

Last year my dad gave Brett a Volkswagen Bug, and since bringing it back to Idaho he has turned a lot of heads.  Many people told him he should enter into the Volkswagen car show at the end of June.  He was a little worried about not getting things done in time, but after a couple of late nights and early mornings  he was able to participate in the car show and he had a great time.  The sponsors of the car show had some original service vehicles brought from Germany, they were pretty cool to look at.

Original old time fire engine from Germany.

Original German ambulance.  It was pretty cool to see they had chairs that sat backwards and it had a small gurney in it.

Some of the cars were really old, retro, and in need of a lot of work.  But you could tell that the owners really have had a good time with their cars.

Some cars looked really nice and you could tell the owners had put a lot of time into maintaining them.

Three different bugs and each with their own cuteness and personality.  (We like the red one in the middle!)

The proud owner.  Brett really put a lot of time into getting the bug ready for the car show and it was a lot of fun for me to see him mingle with the other car owners.  He has been invited to join the "bug club" as well as go on a few tours with them, unfortunately because of time constraints he has not been able to participate...yet.
