Bug Fest 2007

Last Saturday, the Beetle Club of Malaysia organised its annual Bug Fest. It is an event where all the bugs around the Klang Valley and in fact some from outstation come as well to participate in this show. It is a Beetle Show. Well, I missed it last year as I was back in Melaka, so I had to go for it this time. It was fun. We (Myself - VW Beetle 1200 1973, Rufus - VW Beetle 1300 1968 and Risberg - VW Beetle 1600 1972) convoyed to the venue - Summit in Subang Jaya. It was a decent turn out. I did not expect that many people to come. But I met people of different backgrounds, who had different stories to tell about their Bugs. The funny thing was I saw a whole load of ‘A’ plated cars – all my Ipoh-mali fellows la. So, it was nice to meet some old friends as well.

Can you imagine, for such an event, I forget to bring my camera. @#$%^&* Yeah I know! Anyway, I was glad Foong brought his new phone, so he was my camera man. He took some decent pictures.

There were many categories:-
1. Best Restored 67 / 69 / 72
2. Best Paint-Job
3. Best Engine
4. Best Interior
5. Best Sound System
6. Best Car of the Bug Fest 2007 [Overall ]

We did not participate in any of the competitions as we're still in the process of pimpin' our rides. It will take a while. Then again, we're in no rush, but we hope to be able to participate in the 2010 Bug Fest in JB.

We left Summit at about 8pm as we had our jamming practice in USJ as well.
