      Well I'm not sure about entering.

      I don't know how my ego will take losing to a car with a giant axe strapped to it.

      How many Lumberjacks will you be bringing along?

      First the Axe is bolted on!

      Last year they gave us "Honorable Mention" (I take that as a win) because we were the only Fox.

      5 Jacks and 1 Jill.

      I think that means we have a skulk of Foxes.

      This might be the largest gathering of Foxes west of Denver and north of Half Moon Bay...

      I enter every show I go to as you can't beat the parking and this year at one show, I won second in my Syncro and it's not really show quality.

      Maybe one day I'll head out that way for this show. It would be a nice road trip.

      I sold my Fox a month ago and have been doin the shows around here with my G.T.I.,I do love the attention it gets but the Fox Wagen was always the best Gotta another Fox on the go,maybe next year you could stop in Calgary and we travel together. I have never been in a show with another Fox. Easy win though when you're in the same category as new Beetles and Audi's

      Fox invasion. I'm not sure they knew what was going on. The general public certainly didn't and some of the comments I overheard from the event staff were hilarious.

      Two wagons, in one parking lot, both with functional hatch struts! I am impressed. I AM making it to GCVW next year.

      I'd second that for next year... OK BC Fox nuts, I've got 15 more days before the metal muncher on my 87 parts car, this weekend and next... I'm going in hard to strip few things I need so PM me if you want to grab what you want and join me with wrenches in hand... I know you guys need parts for almost a song and dance.
