OCTO / Prado Park / Black Star
For this segment, words haven’t really formatted in my head or how to start it off? I know this is a cliché but I have no words to describe the OCTO/PRADO PARK weekend!!?? While at the Pomona Swap Meet the word I heard all day long was "BLACK STAR"!! As in the VTO BLACK STAR camping extravaganza. During the week I was informed of the Black Star camping out starting to accumulate enthusiasts. I actually knew a handful of people who were heading out there on Wednesday. Buy Friday evening while at OCTO I was informed of a VW count of 320! This will give you a vague idea of what I’m about to both post and write about. A broken record I do sound like, but EPIC is the perfect word to describe that weekend. I can only imagine what next year’s OCTO/PRADO weekend will be like? I say this because the fun will continue for myself, Comrade ( 10 Foot Doug ) and Cuñado. A few days after we will venture across the pond for a month and hit back to back weekend shows. Including the Hessisch Oldendorf Treffen and the European Bug-In. A must for any true Yank VW enthusiast.
