Yeah I have no idea, just found out today. Hoping for more details soon. I think this is going to screw over a lot of people that had planned on coming from out of state. However, like anything else, we just need to wait for everything to come in to see why it changed.

I think I should be able to make this.  Its the weekend before school starts, but that is ok.  Would be nice to do a drive down to CS from Greeley.  Anyone else from the Ft Collins/Greeley area going?

I am a little south of there in Brighton and will likely be going down.  I'll know for sure about a week in advance.

I just found out there's a Big Sky Euro Show in Billings the day before, I'm torn. I want to see all you guys but want to make some new friends and support the local scene here. I'll see what decision I end up with.

Well they are trying to make DATR more of a national draw, but I understand totally. DATR will be weaker this year due to the planning problems, so I'd say if you were going to have to decide, I might save the long drive to meet some new folks locally. ;)

Yeah, what's going on with it this year? The planning crew's been pretty quite or less enthusiastic about it. I know Scott's been in Iraq for a long time...

Post by: 92UrS4 on July 06, 2007, 02:31:30 PM
I think that was part of the issue. A lot of people have put in work on it, but I think Scott kept everyone in check and took care of stuff not getting done in the past.

I'm not trying to create or imply anything negative, just what I have observed. I know Mike (kt037) has really stepped up and tackled a lot, hence the venue and date change late in the game.

I am still very excited about it, but I don't see the big draw for out of state peeps. This will be more like the show of 3 years ago. However, I have been wrong before and will certainly be wrong again in my life. :D

That's cool that Mike stepped up. Haven't seen him in a grip. Well, I hope the show stays strong this year.

Just two weeks away, who's going? Anyone looking to caravan down? I am in, I don't think we'll show the Passat at all, just the Audi.

Also, what about a detail day the day before?

For those that are going, what time would you like to meet up and caravan down? I'm guessing there will be the usual meeting spot at the Krispy Kreme in Lone Tree. I was thinking meet around 6:30 and leave around 7? The gates open at 8.

I will plan on bringing my 10x10 tent. I'm trying to talk Renee into showing the Passat, but she doesn't want to.

I am willing to meet at KK to drive down.

I am still trying to figure out if it will just be me, me and one kid, or the whole family, including the dog that will all head down together.  will have to see.

Yup yup. I'll be at KK sometime before 7am.

Doesn't look like there's a snowball's chance the mk4 will be clean enough to come unless i pay someone to clean it for me, heh. i'll be in the teenie-weenie-meanie-greenie-thingie, bah, whatever. ;)

My car needs a serious amount of love before it heads down to the springs this weekend.  I think if I start detailing it this evening, I might have it in decent shape by then.

Bump for tomorrow!
I'm beat from detailing for most of the day and the skin on my hands are about to fall off.  I'd guess we'll be meeting at the KK just before 7am.

It will be a scorcher tomorrow, so bring plenty of water/beverages and sunscreen.

On that note, I WILL NOT be at Krispy Kreme in the morning. I have talked Renee into coming because I don't want her to be home alone so in order to make a compromise we are leaving at 8. I should be getting there about an hour after the caravan.

So if you're going to KK early I WILL NOT be there. Sorry if that ticks anyone off, but Renee busted her ass helping me clean the car this evening so I have to give a little. :D

Jay,

It was nice to see you and Rene at the DATR.  I also talked to Alan. I'm glad that I was able to snag a couple of stickers as well.  I am displaying them proudly on my 2 rear quarter windows.  Also, I finally debadged the ride....no ghosting.

Hope to see you guys in the near future.

Scott

Post by: 92UrS4 on August 26, 2007, 05:12:02 PM
That's awesome Scott, glad the debadging went well. We were happy that we had the chance to meet you finally and see the bug. Man did it look sweet rolling down I-25.

Seems like you had a nice productive day after heading out from the show.

As for DATR, it was hot...damn hot. All in all with how late everything was put together Mike (kt037 on most forums) really did a nice job stepping up and getting things in place for the show. The turnout was better than expected by everyone, including the planners. On our way down, as mentioned above, we passed Scott and Mike (redline) ended up behind us as we approached and finally got to the mall. Mike and I ended up parking next to each other and Renee and I brought the 10x10 tent so there was shade for everyone.

There were 80 bazillion MKIvs, but each one looked great. Far fewer MKII's than in the past and MKI's, well there was one.

Passat numbers were small too, but not unlike past years. Decent Air Cooled turnout as well.

In Audi-land the numbers were small, there were A4s and some S4's (at least one S4 I saw). I expected a much larger Audi turnout than there was. So that was disappointing. There was a Q7, which got grouped in the Touareg class, and since there were no T's showing won.

Other Audi, the class I was in, turned out to be a hodge podge with some good competition. I think there were 6 cars in teh other class:

1 RS6
1 Allroad Monstah! (Gragravar)
1 Audi (90) Coupe
1 A3
1 90 (redline)
1 S4 (me)

So as you can see that is a pretty hefty lineup. We stuck close to our cars as we knew judging would be tricky in the class. When the awards rolled around Andrew (Gragravar) walked away with runner up and I some how left with best in class for Other Audi.

Alan (aowhaus) received runner up in the Passat class as well, congrats Alan! Andrew (34K) has done a kickass job on his Monty MKII. Seeing it in person was the highlight of the day for me. Very nice work, though no award at this showing I think you'll be the one everyone else is trying to beat next year.

Again, I think it was a good turnout and for how late everything was put together the show turned out good. It was really hot, but frankly I like that better than the stories I heard about last year. It felt good to be able to show a car again, it;s too bad I had to wait all Summer to be able to do it. Hopefully the other local shows will start letting Audi's show.

I know the numbers are low, but since no one feels included owning an Audi it makes it tough to get the word out.

I only took a handful of pictures, it was just too hot out to take the time to take pictures. I will post up what I took soon. Mike (redline) and his super 1337 camera were bust taking pictures all day. I look forward to seeing those.

So it was a lot of fun! I am really glad I was able to get behind Jay (Gietl), else I don't think I would have been able to find the mall. I'm also glad for the 10x10 Jay and Renee brought, otherwise, I don't think i could have stayed the whole time in that brutal heat.

I started out from Elizabeth way early, and ended up behind Jay right before the event, and parked with them, and by a stroke of luck by Llynda(http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=39509930 (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=39509930)) with her TT, and we set up there. I got a chance to browse around at the cars that were there and was impressed with what some people had done with them. There were way too many Mark 4s and not nearly enough Audis. I really hope next year will end up bigger and more awards.

Congrats to Jay especially, you really deserved that award! but congrats to Andrew and Alan too!

I didn't take as many photos as I usually do, but I did manage to get some good shots. The best ones will end up on my car Flickr. Which you can find here:http://flickr.com/photos/audineverfollow/ (http://flickr.com/photos/audineverfollow/)

Next year I am definitely coming back to kick some butt. ;) Already ordered some parts I have been wanting right after I got home.

I hear you about the heat. I'm nursing a nice new sun burn. :-[ Seemed like every time I got out in the sun i had to sit back down for 20 minutes. I must have not been properly hydrated.

Thanks for posting the pics guys!

I'm sure the look i'm going for with the mk2 is not going to be for everyone. I'm really trying to come up with some stuff that you don't see on everybody's cars. I don't expect to see trophies and certainly not magazine layouts with it, but it's great to hear ya'all liked it. :D

savin' these!

Congrats to Jay and Alan and gragravar(not sure of your name) for taking place/winning classes. Andrew (34k) nice to see your car in person after watching the build all these months on here and DZ, looks good (and do what you like not what the masses like).

It was a great time, even though it was hot as hell (at least we didn't get that nasty hail storm that plague last year's show).
Eventhough attendance was down from previous years and there were a lot less sponsors, the organizers did a good job nonetheless in putting together an enjoyable show.  It was great seeing everyone and meeting new fellow Passat and other VW/Audi owners.

I have a wicked bright red triangular patch on my upper chest from being out in the sun all day long, luckily the rest of me was covered in SPF35.

The best in show A4 was indeed over-the-top with yards and yards of imitation Burberry fabric/leather covering almost every inch of the interior.  The owner was even coordinated with a matching Burberry shirt and cellphone holder.  The company that did the customizing does all kinds of over-the-top cars.  Definately not my cup of tea, but I appreciated the work that was put into it.

There was a 2008 VW R32 which was understated but very nice.
On the way back home I was following the Fry Bug, a NB fueled by cooking oil, and it did indeed smell like french fries -- I almost made a stop at Mc-D's as I was really craving some fries!

Scott, you wasted no time debading your car.  We were just talking about doing it that morning!

This is my last DATR as I will be parting out my car within the next couple months.  If there is anything you want from my car please let me know -- RMCB5 members has first dibs!

Wow, guys. From the pics, I have to admit, it looks better than the year before last that I went. Let me guess, the guy with the Passat Variant took first? Looks like all he did different from the year he beat Mark and I was change his rim color to gunmetal...

The A4 was over the top. I think it would have fit in down in SoCal. I'll try and get mine in tip-top shape for next year's show and bring it down. I've seen the widebody in the flesh it was well put together albeit dirty and in need of some loving. It looks like he did a great job cleaning it up!

Awesome guys. I'm bummed I missed it this year!

That looks like it was a great show.

Everyone's car looked great.  I feel like the guy that wrote "I Love Rock Chips" on his car with as much work as mine needs. 

I did see a photo I wonder if anyone can elaborate on:

It looks like a cabby with some later model front end put on.  It looks well done though!

I believe that it is a VW Pointer truck. Unfortunately couldn't gather much info from a quick Google search, and I never got around to talking to the guys with the truck. I believe they came from mexico. I did however find one image of a stock one, unfortunately off of Chinese Yahoo.

Hope it helps!

You could always check out VW of Mexico since that is where the truck came from.

That's very cool! I wonder if you can get them registered here.  Doubt it, but would be cool to see them around.  I bet they sell for something like $12K.
