For a while I thought that edition38’s Sunday coverage will never see the daylight. Who would actually care to see part 3? It’s been almost a month since this year’s edition38 has ended.
After arriving late on Friday, we were awaiting Saturday to come. We got up early, as some may remember from part 1 and have started juicing the show straight away. The night before made us become seriously thirsty for VAG’s, wheels and stance, where in the dark of the camping, one was only able to catch a glimpse of a polished lip. We’ve got hooked on again. Very badly this time!
I wanted to travel to England for Edition38 since I’ve moved to Ireland. Over the last 5 years my plans always ended in the same way – “Too late now, I’ll go next year…”. That has finally changed now in 2011. Being unsure about the EU’s stability and the global economy, I’ve decided that it is high time to go, hope that I won’t jinx it, but I thought to myself that it might be the last chance to experience Britain’s finest VAG show and shine before that poxy economy collapses on all of us turning the scene into wood and hand saws era.
An another Sunday mass at the VW church. This time, on the 14th of August, we went to Fermoy, Co. Cork to take part in the number one VAG show in the Republic of Ireland. As usual, we met at the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre car park and formed a convoy to roll down the N7 and other roads towards Fermoy.
It’s been over two weeks since we’ve left Holland and the spirit of MIVW is still alive. Personally I had one of the best weekends in my life. Great people, fantastic show, superb atmosphere and… of course, awesome top-class cars.
The 7th day of the 8th month of the year 2011 came. Many did wait long for this day to come and many spent hours in their garages to build a show stopper to bring. The night before we partied hard at the European Connection hotel party and when we woke up in the morning we found ourselves in a Home Alone-style situation.
Congratulations Damian! Marrakesh Brown won this year’s first prize in Vento category on Annual VAGE Show and Shine in Fermoy, Co. Cork last weekend. There is nothing more motivating towards further work than appreciation of the judges. Well done Damian!
