      I had a great time, yeah it was expensive, but It was my first show of the year and I enjoyed checking out what everyone did over the winter Definitely some things that can be improved but other then that It was still worth it in my opinion

      Only thing I didnt agree with was the show pricing, on the flyer it said $25 to show, then when you get there and give them $25 to show they said oh its 25 to show in the non judged category and $30 to show if you want to be judged. Are they paying judges now? Unless thats the case I didnt understand why but either way I still had fun

      The extra 5$ is probably to pay for the trophies or something like that

      I figured the extra $ they put on top of the regular admission would cover that, so that would be an extra 5 from each person who showed in the "non-judged category", and an extra 10 per person on top of regular admission for people who wanted to show and get judged. Thats alot of money

      I had a horrible time. I didn't see any cars on bags, no one had sick camber, no vrs in shaved bays. It was just awful. Never going again.

      Maybe it was just me but i felt like there were a lot more cars at past spring show n go events.
      This year the spectator lot and show lot felt a little empty imo.

      less cars = higher costs as well.
      i have to say my motivation for SnG isn't all there but it is nice and close and WTF is $20 to hang out with some friends for a day and gather some ideas for my car.
      i rolled in late around 11:15... first time I didn't leave 8am for SnG but i had a good day... and it's the first time I didn't stay for judging.
      after 4 years of doing this i realized i built this car for me unlike my mk4 that i built for everyone else (while i have 2 trophy's here for it).
      i probably will always attend just to kick it with some buds.

      Looked stock. But far from it. Just because its not a pimp wagon doesnt mean its stock. Stock suspension is super high up. Put a car on coils next to a bagged one and duh... its gonna look like a jeep

      lol yeah true. I wasn't bashing the show. Simply stating it seemed like less people were in attendance than last year.

      I go for the swap meet and drag races. I walked through the show field and only saw a few cars that made me say wow that looks nice. There are less people being creative for some reason. It's seems like everyone simply does a vr with a shaved bay or bags and wheels, that's it. People aren't trying anymore and then threads like this show up. Well over 6 years ago when I started going to shows people actually tried. I remember seeing crazy ass cars back then. They did what they saw was unique. Now everything is generic. I knew what I was going to see well before the show and that's just sad. I'll continue going for the swap meet and the drag races. Those are the only two aspects of the show that I can't already foresee what people are going to bring out.

      i went, had a lot of fun, the swap meet was good to me
      saw about 10-15 cars running down the track, all but 2-3 were slow as balls
      show seemed small this year, costs at the gate were higher than i remembered
      i paid for exhibition, ended up in an area past the vendors and swap meet along with a handful of pickup trucks... i don't get it
      i remember going to spring and fall show n go and skipping waterfest sometimes because SnG was always better, now idk
      there was a time when show n go was held on the same day as honda day or american muscle test and tune and it made the track more interesting, i think i even remember a time when show n go took up BOTH sides of the track it got so big, what happened, and who is running it now that german squad isn't? makes sense now why i didn't even hear about the show, i just know its always early april so i kept searching for the announcement as spring got closer

      Trophies wahhhh...Long lines wahhhhh....

      Hey Mike. Why dont you build a car that functions?

      I'm sure you're going to put a 1.8T in your MK3 and its going to run like ass. You'll tell everyone it runs great and polish a bunch of stuff on it. Then you'll arrive at every show with your hood off. Then you'll sit in your little fold up chair waiting for the judges so you can lie to them and tell them its the most built 1.8T ever. Meanwhile everyone else is kicking back BBQ'ing not giving a ****.

Parks are state, city, or town funded, so their pricing is significantly lower than a private venue like Raceway Park.

      However, while Raceway sets the pricing, organization, show categories, and judging procedures can definitely be handled better by the presenting groups (whomever it may be) - Raceway Park doesn't know their audience, only the presenting sponsors do.
      While majority of what you have said is correct, all of those shows are not held at parks. Cult Classic is held at a park. VAG Fair is on the York Fairgrounds (private venue). Brokedown is held on a private airport. Brokedown was also free to get into. You just donated money to charity as your 'entry' fee. Just thought I should clarify! Carry on!

      PS, we stopped going to all Show n' Go events 3 years ago. It had lost it's vibe once German Squad stopped caring as much about it. I can definitely say that we haven't missed it.
      Believe nothing you hear, and only half of what you see.

      ROFL.

      I went there to hang out with some people, walk around and see some cars, and watch a good race or two. Mission accomplished. Even parked my pile of **** in the show area so people could see a MKV with some old school ugly wheels on it. If you're going to complain about spending $25-$30 on admission because the judging sucked or whatever and you couldn't find a way to have a good time otherwise, then stay home.

      This thread makes me LOL. That is all.

      Maybe it's because everytime you lower a car and slap wheels on it, yet leave the rest halfassed, BS the details of it, then expect to win every show you attend and have everyone swing on your nuts.

      I'd think that's a pretty accurate guess.


      You created this thread because you are butt hurt you didn't win. Whether you realize it or not, that is exactly what it is.
