Yes, I've been hittin' the midwest (USA) VW show circuit for the last few years with the objective to photograph as many cool cars as possible. The shows are alway enjoyable -- a lot of interesting people, and a lot of great cars. Next year, I plan to increase my coverage with more shows and more photography. I hope to see you there. -Rich

Northeast Illinois Volkswagen Association annual VW-Fest held at Anderson VW in Crystal Lake Illinois. Another beautiful day for a car show. The turn-out was excellent... a lot of cool cars on display. I have three galleries of photos showing only a sampling of what was at the show -- each gallery has a thumbnail index.

MOFOCO's 12th annual BugFest held at Great Lakes Dragaway, Union Grove Wisconsin on Saturday July 19th 2003. It was a beautiful clear and very sunny, not too hot, summer day -- perfect for a Bugfest!! Tons of cool cars, along with drag racing, cross racing, a swap meet, a bikini contest, good food and cold beer -- fantastic!! What more can you ask for? I had a great time.
