      i was happy with the turn out, a lot of people showed up. i do agree with the price though. it cost me $14 to get into the NY International Auto show but it was $20 to get into Show and Go. i thought that was a little ridiculous.

      the kid at the front gate was an idiot
      "i want to show"
      "do you want to be judged broskie"
      "no"
      "oh its only 25 then bro"
      "i get to park on the show field next to the show cars?"
      "sure do bro"

      exhibition is not the ****ing show field.

      show n go has been going down hill for the past 3 years or so. **** gets worse every year I think this year was my last. Stayed for all of 3-4 hours. No parts, just people hawking their **** from wrecked cars wanting way to much for it. How does a R pedal go for 50$ at a show when u can just wait for ecs to have them back in stock for 18$? i don't want one just saying. And most of cars are all the same but still have a few unique ones around. When the highlight of a VW/Audi show is a porsche panamera (did i spell it right) then it's time to stop. I think next year a few of the greats (travy and such) get to decide weather you allowed to be entered into the show to be judged or not.

      Not a fan of the show and go anymore. Price is just too ridiculos. Its the same price as if i was going to waterfest. i spent 40 dollars to walk around the same small lot for two hours [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG] and didn't find anything i needed.

      Would be nice to have the cars judged by people who know what they are looking at as well. I dont even know how many times I got the "wtf are you talking about" face from my judge. He was pretty clueless.
      I honestly think the problem with the show is German Squad.

      Man, u guys should"ve went to the vw show in long island, it was good, a 1st time for dealership to have a show, and we had a big turnout, despite it being the same day as show and go, we had a lot of people swing by and there were cool cars there too. Best of all, it was free. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Show and go is pretty much the same cars, and no vendors. Ur def right on not gtting what u want. Last spring i went to show and go, and couldnt find any parts for my jetta at the time.

      the only reason i go to these jersey shows anymore is because the cruise down with 10 + cars is more fun then the show

      this.
      I've been around the vw scene in the tristate area for almost 20 years......
      About 10 years ago, I don't recall if it was issues within the Central Jersey club, or issues with the promoters/track, or if it was just the progression of things with so many more water cooled cars attending the show...the german squad started judging the show.
      and it's all been down hill from there...
      Not to mention that the O.G. members of the germansquad who were actually decent guys either left the club due to drama or were asked to leave over the years....
      the last few years has seen the return of the Central Jersey judges at least for the aircooled cars..... (If you think the Squad is clueless about watercooled cars, they are brain dead when it comes to aircooled)
      In walking around this show I overheard constant foul mouthed people yelling at each other, I saw people smoking weed, obnoxious music blaring from cars all day, as well as the dj booth, public drinking & intoxication, a fight, and other crap.....
      this is supposed to be a family environment
      This show needs to be Un-Ghetto-fied if it's ever going to see it's original glory....

      Amen to that. I can deal with the dj booth but the blaring of music from the cars as you looked was a little annoying. I dont even bring my children to these events anymore just b/c of the reasons you described. To think the track would allow these people to drink, without getting carded nonetheless, and then go drive home, race, etc. Its absurd. I only go these days myself b/c I enjoy the love of these cars.

      $30 to show and win a $5 trophy is always a bit ridiculous... I feel that loud music should be banned in the show area and away from it. I also feel that the cost of showing and the cost for spectator should definitely come down.

      Maybe I'm the only one but I had a good time. Was there with some friends in the club showing, some friends not in the club showing, and friends hanging out in our lil 'club lounge' corner. Only downside was coming in due to cost, lady up front wanted to charge $30 for me and my car and $30 for the passenger. She didn't get that the passenger was a normal spectator ticket but eventually after 4 straight cars saying the same thing she finally got it. Good times are what you make from it. Was it the best show? No. But it was a good time like norm. I think the scene as a whole is... I dunno... Aside from some very cool and clean cars, in general there's too many crazy colored wheels, too many stickers, blue tape crew, and wrapped interiors with some crazy pattern that it's gotten out of hand. EVERYONE goes for RSs which is a hot wheel but not when every car at a show is rocking a set. I think I had a better time looking at the air cooled cars than the water cooled cars.
      My personal favorite cars of the show was either the stanced A8 on staggered 20s by the stage or 2 different aircooled cars.

      I understand it gets costly to run a show.. paying for tropies, DJ,etc, etc.. however I think the spectator charge was a bit much.
      I had a good time regardless. Getting to see cars that arent on vortex is always a plus as well...
      lookin forward to waterfest and H20.
