Hey guys. I thought you'd all be interested to hear that my Passat won a trophy at the Edition 38 show in Northampton, England a couple of weeks ago!
It was a show n shine with a twist. Called 'Edition 38 Best Ten' there were no categories, all cars were together, and the judges simply picked their ten favourite cars - no particular order. Also, decisions were not only based on condition of car, but also individuality, style, effort, things like that.
Mine was the only 35i at the show, and a lot of people were supprised to see an old Passat modified. I've only ever seen one other 35i at a UK show in the 4 years I've been Dubbing. Anyway, here's the photo of me collecting my trophy

Oh no Jez...You've got a show car now
Welcome to a whole new addiction

Congrats on your first win

Showing your car is like learning how to play golf, once you get your first perfect game, it's all downhill from there

Showing is different from "having a show car" though... I have a driver car and take it to the odd show. And I've got two second place plaques.

Re: My Passat won a trophy at Edition 38 (Devits)

Hey thanks for all the kind words everybody! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
To answer your questions:
G60 Syncro - That's a Volkswagen script off a classic Beetle. I'll see if I have a better shot of it for you.
Cowboy - Yeah, the Bentley's sweet, but unfortunately I can't say I beat it! It was just sat there next to the organisers tent all weekend.
A2B4 Guy - Luckily I had decided to wait til after the show to start pulling my dash apart, otherwise I probably wouldn't have won anything!
As it happens my car is in the garage all this week having a load of work done. Head gasket is blown, radiator is shot, valve stem seals have gone, and the cam belt needs doing.
People keep saying to me "oh, that's bad. why don't you just sell it and get something newer" But (especially after the Edition 38 weekend) I just think "there's no way I can swap this car, it's awesome!!!"

Like A2B4 Guy said "yes it is worth it"

Now if only the US show scene would be as welcoming to the PAOM crowd. Oh well, it's all George Bush's fault


...eveything wrong in the world is his fault! lol
