Default Show and Shine

Yes, we will be having the traditional show and shine.

After great deliberations, the classes will stand as follows:

A3 (Jetta)
B4 Passat/B4 Passat Wagon
A4 Golf
A4 Jetta/Jetta Wagon
New Beetle
B 5.5 Passat
A5 Jetta
Other
People's Choice

Since the PD engine now crosses body styles, we feel that we cannot justify a separate 'PD' classification. As always, a vehicle's mileage WILL count during judging.

**It should be noted that any front end conversions (Getta or Jolf) will be judged in the class it would have been in if the chassis were still 'factory'...Gettas with the Jettas and Jolfs with the Golfs...

I can tell you about it in general...but Fred would have to give specifics.

Overall: condition of the exterior, interior, wheels, engine bay, trunk...

It's good to have a list of mods available for the judges especially if your car is NOT stock.

As I said before, mileage is considered as well.


Chime in past winners - help me out here...

Well if you are in the A4 Jetta class, make sure your car looks like crap. I hear that helps out.

Default Show and Shine Trivia

Did you know that a highly modified, super shiny car has just as much a chance of winning a Show and Shine award as a high mileage daily driver?

It's true, it's true!

In fact, the highest mileage car in the show last year took the coveted People's Choice award. Correct me if I'm wrong, that little white A4 Golf had well over 200,000 miles on the clock.

Don't let the fact that you have no expensive mods keep you from joining the fun of the Show and Shine! You NEVER know who'll come out on top!
(I know even I was surprised once...)

Absolutely! See me and I'll sign you up and give you a registration number...

BTW, we instituted the small $5 show fee this year to help offset the cost of some cool awards...

Actually, it had WELL over 300K on the clock AND was completely stock. VERY clean car. I apologize, but I can't remember his name. I DO remember that he drove out to WI from California though.

Cheers,
Jeff

Update 7/14/06
Registration for the Show and Shine stands as follows:

A3 - 1

B4 - 1

A4 Golf - 4

A4 Jetta - 8

New Beetle - 1

A5 Jetta - 1


The A4 Jetta class is always highly competitive, but as you can see there are deficits in certain other models. It won't take much effort for some of you to come home with a great prize!

Join the show today! (or on site in Philly - see Hamsterdiesel)
