VW Festival 2012

So last summer I went on vacation to Leeds, England. I lived there back when I was a child and have been going back every other year since I left in 2003.

During my last visit I was given the idea of attending a car show while I was visiting. So the next morning I searched Google to find if any car shows were going on, where and when. That morning I saw that there was an event going on at Harewood House  which was about 7Mi/13km from where I was staying.

My camera was being used heavily the previous night so inevitably with my luck the battery was dead. So while I was getting ready I charged the battery as much as possible but that ended up dying within an hour of me getting there. So sadly this post isn't as pic heavy as I would have wanted it to be, but nevertheless whether late or not here are some shots from the show. Enjoi.

Okay while this first one is just a bone stock 320Ci and wasn't even at the show this was the first car shot I took when I arrived at the rental car agency in Manchester.

This special little polo was a mean looking car. With its modified supercharged 1.3L G40.  It is also a Genesis Special Edition which was a special order model back when it was new.

This mean mighty thing is a Volkswagen Polo rocking orange Borbet Type A's

VW vans were very popular at this show, some vans having interiors that would put some houses to shame. This one was also one with a fully customized interior sitting  lowered on some lovely OEM Audi A6 BBS wheels.

Now I'm not much of a fan of Mk3 Jetta's and Golf's but these three all had something that I liked. There are only a handful of Mk3's that I like and these 3 made it to my top 5. This one (above) had beautiful stance with clean paint and wheels and engine bay to match.

This Mk3 looking drop dead gorgeous rocking colour matched 3pc. Schmidt Modern Lines.

This Mk3 Jetta wagon was looking immaculately clean with re-drilled BBS RF's painted to match the roof.

This odd little looking car is a Skoda Felicia and was rolling on Ronal Teddybear Wheels which actually suited the car because of  it childish green tone.
