i just wanted to say thanks so much for allowing us to participate!

we arrived at TDI Fest just before 2pm Sunday, and really were not thinking about participating in the show & shine. we'd never been to a TDI Fest before and thought maybe the show & shine would be all super-modded TDI dreams made into reality.

there were some of those and then some TDIs that are just shining examples of their owner's love. ours fits into that category - so i asked tomo366 if there's any chance we could still get in and he said - "yeah i think so".

a few minutes later we had it parked in the appropriate slot, wiped all the bugs off the front, and we were thrilled just to be part of the event :D!

to get 2nd place was beyond cool. my 10yr old son Andrew was thrilled and can't wait for TDI Fest next year.

i can honestly say that the Sunday of TDI Fest 2009 was the day my son became and auto enthusiast. thanks again!

How about some pictures, for those of us who were unable to attend the fest?:confused:


It would be nice to see the placers in each class....

I'm kind of in agreeance with this request. I know the cars that were there but not the screen names. Mainly because I only showed up for a few hours and because I suffer from CRS.

I had to look up Jettafock to see what car this was and then I saw it was the PG Jetta PD with Montecarlo Wheels. I'm wondering who was the 337 clone.

I'll post mine later:)

I do not think we got pictures of each individual winner. The winners were not announced until the banquet on Sunday evening, and many people left after that. When I got up on Monday the parking lot was cleared out.

LOL @ in need of TLC. I got 1st place last year for it, and last place this year... I guess that's what happens when you're running around like a mad-man all weekend planning the biggest TDI event in history. ;)

If I hadn't slept until noon, I would have been passed out on the auction table at the banquet. ;)

Damned wedding crashers. ;)

Is it possible to request a copy of the scoring sheets on one's own vehicle? I'd like to see where I was lacking compared to the rest of my division. I'll likely never be able to compete with the guys sporting fancy rims/tires, lots of performance mods, and 5-clay-bar-a-week habits, but that didn't stop me from showing anyway this year or back in '06 (and, likely, won't stop me the next time I get to a 'Fest, whenever that happens to be).

The other thing I'd like to know for my own edification would be where I ranked overall in the class (6th out of 12, 15th out of 15, etc.). Even if it was, as I suspect, dead last or nearly so, I'd still like to know. Back channel, of course; I'm not THAT much of a glutton for punishment that I want to take my lumps in public.

One has to know what one's weaknesses are in order to maximize improvement for next time, you know.

The scoring sheets were destroyed after tabulation.......

The categories are Outside, Inside, Underneath,
Engine and Mileage, on a scale of 1-10
(Low mileage is low points High mileage high points)

Knowing I was second in a class of two really puts meaning to "first loser".

Were they averages of the three judges' scores on all areas,
or were certain judges assigned specific areas and their scores combined (i.e.: Judge 1 had underneath and engine, judge 2 had interior and mileage, judge 3 had outside)?

Knowing which judge will be inspecting which area will help me decide where to concentrate my, ummm.... effort, yeah that's it: my cleaning effort.



Sorry Tomo, Fred found the simple "green" I left for you...;)

Sorry about that, another 30 minutes and that might not have been the case.

I'm not complaining. That engine cover you brought me made it a closer score.
Had you been really worried about your ranking in our class you'd have waited until AFTER judging to present it to me.

Quite the opposite won the Golf class. I believe it came down to how clean and shiny your car was. Didn't matter how hard, rare, or different the mods were. Thinking the mods didn't recieve extra points/credit.

I actually think the mods reduce your points. I removed the ashtray in my wagon because it's where I chose to route my usb input cable through, plus I removed my broken cupholder and never replaced it. I think those things hurt me in last year's Show and Shine.

Every Judge judges every car.........There are a total of 50 points possible per car........Cars with high Mileage can get 10 points in that category......then it is the total of the 3 judges
