Aircooleds anyone?

Post by LoveBug66 » Sun Jun 20, 2010 10:26 pm

Hi there!

I'm new to the forum... grew up in Chicago (downtown) but moved to Miami for a few years to get my BA and now I've moved back!

How's that for a short introduction lol. :ninja:

Was wondering if anyone on here is an aircooled enthusiast too? I have a 66 vert that I just trailered up from down south :thumbup:

Here's a couple photos of Mika:

Yeah you won't find them around Chicago much... I've seen a couple bugs on the streets since I've been back but not many. The thing is since Chicago has so many potholes it CAN'T be good :thumbsdown: . And when winter rolls around, they go in their garages for the duration!

But thank you :)

What's the norm for Vdubbers in the Chicagoland area? Are there a bunch of cruises and meets I haven't found out about yet? I know about NIVA and that they do a bunch of stuff and collaborate with other clubs.... but their website sort of sucks in terms of finding out more info about the specific events. And thesamba.com I've been on for awhile but for Miami-based events...

Thanks! I knew about Bugfest... unfortunately I don't think Mika will be ready in time for a show already. I didn't even see a registration page online or anything for it regardless, or if I actually registered my bug, any information about classes or categories, etc. We had this amazing show every year in Miami called Volksblast at the end of January/beg of February, where over 200 aircooled VWs registered in different categories and there was a charity raffle, plaques for 1st 2nd and 3rd places in each class, vendors, a band, etc. It's phenominal.... Is there anything like that here (maybe Bugfest?)? I feel like such a n00b right now lol.

Just wait until November, you'll be missing a lot more than that :ras:

No pre-registration for Bugfest. Just show up early for registration or later to browse. They have a pretty good number of classes for air cooled cars & vans as compared to H2O equipped.

Lol I know... if I'm anticipating missing it and it's only June I can't imagine... but I gotta admit: I missed seasons when I was down there! We only had summer, summer light, rain, and hurricane. Those were the seasons!
