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
