Wookies in the Woods

Wookies in the Woods

Wookies was a HUGE success, and Abe and the guys were able to raise over $26k for the Blount County rescue squad and Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago. These guys have raised almost $90k for charity since they started it back in 2007. This is truly a great event run by great people for great people.

There were loads of great cars there, and, while it primarily an event focusing on the .:R models, everyone is welcome. The competition was stiff, but the R32 Jetta we had been working on took “Best Build” to the owner’s delight. Contrats, Dwayne!

This is definitely the best event of the year. It’s unlike any show we’ve ever been to. It’s more of a gathering, a cruise, a BBQ, and late night hangs, all rolled into one great weekend in beautiful western North Carolina. You’re guaranteed to come across twisty roads, roadside waterfalls, and some of the finest Volkswagens on the east coast (and beyond). Not to mention, the area is full of outdoor activities such as hiking, rafting, and fishing. We were even able to get in some killer mountain biking between cruises down the Tail of the Dragon. 

The dates for next year have already been announced. It’s not too early to reserve your spot for next year.
