Getting ready for the 2017 Phoenix Bugorama (BOR) was especially exciting this year! As we had a couple really neat ‘unique’ projects to debut, and when you repair as many Phoenix based VWs as we do, it’s always great to see our aircooled VW friends.
First Fish’s race buggy – this car is spectacular! (Paint body cred goes to Squeeg’s Kustoms) to say the least, with its 70’s style paint, sweet custom wheels and motor that wants to GO! It does not disappoint. This car is so shiny you need sunglasses at night to check it out.
We were also able to debut the “need for speed” Trabbit – this car now has a full on drag motor in the bed, fully custom – we cut the bed out, installed air bags and have the giant motor sticking out the back. This Trabbit is one of a kind and ready to haul down the track!
BOR in and of itself is always a great time for us, our front end guys really get a chance to shine! We set up a fully stocked booth with cool air, shade, snacks, great company, sweet rides and plenty of parts to go around. We showcase the fun things such as custom built motors as well as the “hardware” that every air-cooled owner needs. We also sold some of our cool shirts to our VW family.
We greatly appreciate everyone that stops by the booth not only to chat about their projects but, also to check out our parts and learn more about DBNB. Everyone that came by was blown away not only by the (Frankenstein) trabbit but also our Lego display. Hank, Fish’s five year old son built a VW beetle Lego, he had to make sure it was done by BOR because he wanted to “show” it. It feels great to know there is such a tightknit group of VW enthusiast out there and we are part of it! We love lending a hand, offering support and our knowledge of the industry. Another successful year at Phoenix Bugorama – thank you to all that support!
When it comes to VW events, this is a yearly staple for us. We want to thank all the people that came by our booth and hung out with us. We’d also like to send a shout out to the entire Bugorama staff for always putting on a great aircooled show! Oh and last but definitely not least, big THANK YOU to Lunde’s Peoria Volkswagen for sponsoring the show. We will see you next year!!
