On this Memorial Day weekend, Bob Baker Volkswagens opened their doors once again, for the 21st annual Spring Festival. Presented by the Volker Rader Klub, this cool event takes over the dealership lot and showroom in a great display of classic VWs. So this past Sunday, over 110 VWs showed up and enjoyed the day, listening to surf music provided by Tower 7, tried their luck with the 50/50 raffle (thanks to Benco, JBugs, B&R Buggies and SOS Upholstery). This fun day came to an end all too soon, and awards were given out to the best of the best.
Winner of the Bob Baker's Choice award went to the blue 1987 Vanagon Westfalia Synchro owned by Marshall MacCready of San Diego, CA.

Lasting Impression
When Bryan Ortiz saw an early bus sitting in a driveway when he was just a young boy, he knew he would someday own such a cool looking VW. Years later his beautiful '61 23-Window bus not only took Best Best of Show Custom at the 2014 Classic, it is also featured in the December 2015 issue of Hot VWs!
