San Diego Air Cooled Fiesta #4 - Chula Vista, California
What an AWESOME show, or more like a surprise for myself. I didn’t know what to expect. Sometimes its good going into something with zero expectations. Well this past weekend was one of them. While at last weekend’s Bug-In, Comrade – aka 10 Foot Doug, tells me he would be hosting a bbq in honor of our good friends – The Timmermans, whom are here visiting all the way from The Netherlands. OKAY! Some of you may know Niels (shame on you if you don’t!) of the AirMighty magazine fame. He, his lovely wife, Merieke, and their skateboarding prodigy – Justin, are out here both on holiday and working. Talk about working while you are playing. The least to say. Any hoot, we had a small gathering a Doug’s place and chatted with Niels until the wee hours talking about past adventures and future ones to come.
Well, upon arrival we are greeted by a group of Mariachis! We were all stunned and what a surprise for Niels and his family. We were greeted by the President of the San Diego Aircooled club, Julio Vasquez, and pointed in the right direction ……… to our spot saved by our good friend Serg Vasquez (no relationship). Great parking spots. This was a well organized event. Type 2’s had their area and so did the beetles. Tons of swappers and retailers all along the side. Also on hand was a few live bands playing throughout the day and plenty of food vendors. I was informed this event gains more recognition, participants and spectators each year. You can count of me coming back for this event!
