Firstly it is wonderful
your parents will be back on their feet! that must have been some scary times for your family!
Personally I disagree with giving an invite to any
modified cars at the worlds 'biggest and finest vintage show'.
I think that if you do not deter these cars you may find you have as many in that special street as you do in the rest of the town. It may then just become a very big show with 'all vws' ( albeit very organised!)
There are over 50 vw shows here in the uk each year! They are ALL now all
It is the 'attitude' of some of the people who seriously modify their early cars just to get ' under the skin of the stockers
that is what most people find so offensive.
I am not being hypothetical here, I KNOW some people do this just to make an impact and provoke a reaction. (No, not everyone, of course there are good and bad people in every scene.)
What happens if the floor scraping Papler shows up? That will sure as hell offend ALL the stockers. Its so rare though, so does it stay in the stock area? or with the modified cars?
What about when someone modifies a pre49 car just to get instant fame? Its going to happen sometime. Some attention seeking pleb is sure to want to bask in that limelight.
Hebs are already being done and we never thought that would happen.
Its the unique meeting of so many like minded
people that we enjoy so much, which makes us drive so far!
Camberg got 'watered down'. To a different degree Peppercorn also got watered down too. It happens fast and is very
hard to reverse.
I have noticed that stock people are fickle. If they get upset just once they often just wont return again.
Sorry my views probably appear stong and selfish. ( thats me :wink: :lol: )
You H.O. team are between a rock and a hard place. You cannot please all the people all the time.
But at the end of the day, the health and the happiness of your family are the most important thing of all! 😃
