It was another fun year at the 8th annual Roswell R2k New Beetle Car Show this past weekend. We met up with some of our old friends from past years and made some new ones. It was great seeing everyone again and checking out all the bugs that entered in the show.
There was a group of Volkswagen New Beetles that started in Chicago and did a Route 66 caravan to the show and are continuing on this week to end the route in California. Thanks to Antoine, I got a copy of all the photos the crew had taken from Chicago to Roswell and it looks like to have been a great trip. I wished we could’ve taken time off to join in on the fun!
Top 5 trophies for each New Beetle car class were given out at the show and Caliente scored Top 5 in the Convertible class. Yeah! There were 2 New Beetles that I hadn’t seen before that quickly became my favorites of this year’s show. One was The Great Pumpkin and the other was Fastball, the Cracker Jack Baseball car. The Parade down Main Street followed the awards ceremony and, as always, we had fun throwing out candy to the kids along the street.
