Reply to "Calling all Northeast Replicar People!"

Today was the "Volks-Faire" Aircooled VW only show in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and it turned out to be the largest show of the season, thus far, for any type of car!

I'm guessing at a couple of hundred plus cars scattered around the grounds of the mansion - Sedans, 'Verts, Things, A hoard of Dune Buggies, another hoard of Buses, all three of us Speedster Replicas and a relatively small vendor area (where I stocked up on cork valve cover gaskets).  You Carlisle folks might remember the Pickering families coming for a number of yers - Bill Jr. was there with the family IM, still looking great but sporting Florida tags these days.

Weather was picture-perfect and the attendance of both cars and spectators was great.  Saw "Boston Bob" Elliot from here with his Deserter Dune Buggy, supporting the 50'th anniversary of the deserter with the designer, Alex Dearborne, signing tee-shirts.  Whe I was visiting with Alex (he also has a very cool 1962 original Roadster) who walks over to say hello but Reeves Calloway, an old friend of Alex's and the man behind the Calloway 'Vettes.  There were maybe 15 Deserters there, and maybe 30+ Meyers Manx's

Lots going on there, so I'll just post a whole lot of photos.
