^ Thanks for the comment about my Silver R. The problem with the R class is that 2004 R's are in the same class as a 2012 R. I'm sure the 1 point that caused me to come in 2nd was some body scratch or tiny blemish that a brand new car would not have. In terms of mods and overall flow, I had him beat.
Pat, you know that i feel this from the bottom of my heart.. I love your car... that is why I parked you where I parked you.
Here's one thing to understand about parking cars as they arrive.
To break it down:
Say 20 MKV GTI's pre-register to show. Bill allots space for 25 GTI's (in case more show up that didn't pre-register.). Only 5 MKV GTI's show up to show altogether. That's 20 open parking spaces gone to waste in an already space limited show field.
Going on the same visual, 10 MKIV Jettas pre-register and Bill allots for 20 spaces. All 10 MKIV's show up plus an extra 15. They're out 5 spaces and have to randomly park them because there isn't room in their class.
With this show growing each year, parking them as they arrive allows for more cars. Also, it makes you walk around and appreciate every car.
I love class separation, personally. But I understand why some shows have to park cars the way they do. Some hate it, some love it. You can't please everyone at every single show. It's really just not possible.
i think its cool cuase you can park next to you friends that are showing to . he has a a4 and i have mk6 gti would love to be parked next to my friends. i never been to this show and plan on going in 13
