On Friday evening, we all lined up and got ready for the 18-mile cruise through the back roads of Effinham, Illinois.
Mid-America's 16th Annual Funfest
A three day VW event in Effingham, Illinois
As we head to the airport on our way home, here are a few photos we will share from this past weekend at the FunFest. This was the 16th annual event, and we've covered everyone of them. They are really a blast. So while our complete coverage of this past weekend will appear in the printed version of Hot VWs, for now, here are ten more photos from our files. Enjoy.
Inside one of the "domes" at Mid-America are several of their collection of cool vintage VWs. Four of them were from Herbie movies.
