There’s over a foot of snow on the ground outside as I sit down to write this post about VAG Fair 2013. Roughly half a year has past and it appears it took that long for me to relocate photography from the show having misplaced it on my hard drive.

Technically it’s a Mk1. Last weekend we headed to a small car show dubbed Mk1 Madness in Eastern Pennsylvania. This was essentially a show for VW enthusiasts and those of the very specific focus of the first-generation water-cooled cars like the Giugiaro-penned Golf I. We went to cover the show for our sister publication VWvortex though we were very pleasantly surprised to find an Audi on the field.
