SEVWA's Fast Times at Farmington #20
Great weather, super turnout, what a way to top the 2013 season!
This past Sunday, October 20, the weather in Farmington, North Carolina could not have been better for a VW event. This marked the final event in the SEVWA 2013 series, crowning the 1/8th mile drag champions in the process. Despite hotels in the area being almost totally booked up thanks to a huge furniture expo show, still, the turnout was better than expected. Best of Show went to the slick custom single cab of Mickey Shaw, who we took photos of on Saturday. Over in the ASA street drag class, Gene Cook took the win over Scott Sain in an exciting final.
Robert Cook showed off his newly complete '58 Kombi at the Farmington show, displaying near flawless body work and smooth Texas Brown paint.
Great 1/8th mile drag racing went throughout the day at Farmington.
Here's the gang at Monkey Nut, in Charlotte, NC, who do a lot of VW work in the area. Great guys.
We took photos of this incredible double cab, with the most beautiful leather interior we seen in years. Would you believe that this truck was once a single cab? You'll see this one in Hot VWs soon...
ASA racers are going ultra-light to go faster. Here, Anthony Consorte's latest CNC-made hubs and custom disc brakes... Incredible work.
