This past April the Scenic City Volks Folks hosted their 18th annual Bug-A-Palüza. It’s a family friendly weekend event hosted in the wonderful city of East Ridge, Tennessee filled with Volkswagens both old and new. Traditionally the event was geared more toward aircooled cars, but in recent years has seen an abundance of watercooled vehicles as well. Having owned both (and still own one of each) it’s a fun event that’s constantly growing. Even better is that the swap meet gets bigger every year!   Continue Reading

I’ve really been slacking on updates lately with both the events and the progress that’s been made on the C10. These pictures have been sitting in my hard drive ready to upload for over a month now and I’m just getting to posting them. As far as the cruise in goes, this year was really something. Coker tire quit hosting the fall cruise in and I think that may have to do something with the turn out – it was huge! Tons of cars from all over the area, so much in fact that I felt slightly overwhelmed. I think that may reflect in my pictures, with as many cars as there were this year I only shot pictures of a select few that caught my eye. Continue Reading

This past weekend was the 10th annual Goodguys Nashville Nationals car show. It’s a three-day event filled with pre 1972 cars and trucks that happens at LP Field in Nashville TN. Just like every year that I’ve been, the cars that came out were nothing short of great. A group of friends and myself drove the Bel Air up Friday morning and stayed for the weekend. One of us even bought a ’66 C20 flatbed in the swap meet (that didn’t quite make it home). Since it was a three day event, I ended up taking a good amount of pictures. Continue Reading

While lately I’ve focused mostly on older American cars and trucks, I cut my teeth on Volkswagens. I’ve owned a 1961 bug for the better part of ten years, and every year since 2006 I’ve told myself that I would drive it to this show under its own power. This year I didn’t take very many pictures, but here are a few cars from Bug-A-Palüza 17 that I really enjoyed. As usual, you won’t find any of my car in the mix, but maybe next year..

Last weekend was the annual Honest Charley and Coker Tire spring cruise-in, where thousands of enthusiasts gathered to celebrate their love for vintage automobiles. Saturday morning I met up with a group of friends and drove down there with my ’62 Bel Air and dog. Like most years I’ve attended, I talked to a lot of interesting folks and ended up with a pretty wicked sunburn. Overall it was a great weekend, and I can’t wait for next year’s.
