Sunday morning 21st August time to visit Cumbria VAG at The Westmorland Showground, and as Golf who loves all cool cars, it was a big deal.
Arrived around 12pm, lots of movement and slick cars rolling round, parked up with roadtrip friend a Audi A4 Black edition.
Amongst the fine cars rolling around their were a few just lounging on the grass, like the one above the W12 Audi A8, there was also a vast range of VAG cars including the Golf pretty much all variants, R, GTI, Caddy, Jetta the list goes on.
A great range of VW's and VAG cars alike.

The Sun was shining, the car planet auto Golf was gleaming it was time to head to the Heaves Hotel for the KLMC Cars the Star Show, as we pulled off the A590 there were two VW Campers pulling out onto the carriageway, concourse in looks.
The entry was £5 per person or £10 per car, very reasonable, we made our way to the car park a grassy field filled with a range of fine motor cars Ferrari, classic Mini's, Alfa Spider, Corvette Stingray, AMG Mercedes, M3 BMW even a US Made Mercury, bear in mind this was just the car park.
The show was organised into different clubs as well different categories from pre 1960 to Military and utility, there was well 70 cars ranging from the the classic the Rolls Royce to the Robin Hood 2B kit car, it was strange to see what was considered a classic in todays eyes Citroen ZX, Honda s2000 even a Saab Viggen 9000 Convertible.
Their was wide array of Rally cars on display including, the Mk2 Escort Mexico and RS2000, Mk1 Escort Mexico, Lotus Sunbeam and a Mini 1275 GT, one of the highlights had to be the Ford racing Puma, a wide bodied version of the popular Puma hot hatch.
