Attention: GTA Bugs. We're meeting at the Tim Horton's at the corner of Battleford and Erin Mills Parkway In Mississauga at 8:30am Sunday morning to convoy to the show together.
We arrived at the June Jitter VW show at about 9:30am in a four Beetle, one Bus convoy. The lineup moved along quickly and we got set up in the middle of a huge row of Beetles.
It was a hot one and shade was at a premium. Luckily we brought a folding picnic table and a big blue and white umbrella. The JJB switched to participant judging this year and everyone that entered picked his or her favorite VW.
Activates at the show included the clutch eater teeter-totter, where you try and balance your V-dub on a huge teeter-totter, engine rebuild and Bug push. All in all it was a great day and a good time was had by all!
