H20i 2011 Coverage: You Have to Go Next Year! (Part 4)

h20i 2011 coverage

Even with rain forecasted for the last weekend of September, the excitement of many VW and Audi owners was not dampened. The light rain and grey skies all weekend didn’t hold many back from cruising Coastal Highway and spending time in the Convention Center parking lot talking and hanging out. H2O International is one of those events that is unlike any other around; it is not focused around the main show on Sunday but events and meets going on throughout the whole weekend up and down Coastal Highway. What started as an event for VW’s and Audi’s has quickly seen the rise of other cars including everything from clean, stanced BMW’s to a bagged Subaru and even a few fitted Hondas. The variety of cars seems to be getting larger each year and this year definitely saw the largest attendance in non-VAG cars to date. The show on Sunday, even at a new location which was smaller than the old location at Ocean Downs, saw no decline in the quality of cars from years past. While strolling through the club parking and vendor area, there was always something see.  Even with the less than ideal weather, I still look forward to this show every year and cannot wait to see the cars people have been waiting to reveal in Ocean City. If you did not attend H2O International this year, you definitely missed out.  All I have to say is… YOU HAVE TO GO NEXT YEAR!
