Southern Worthersee 2013 Coverage
This year marks the 7th Southern Worthersee. For those who are not aware, SoWo was created by some great guys who wanted to bring the experience of the original Worthersee stateside.
The Original Worthersee is held in Reifnitz Austria, and is one of the largest VAG car shows in the world. Worthersee at Reifnitz had its first get together in 1982 and had less that 100 attendants. It has since grown to over 150K visitors. In 1987 Carl Hahn who was the Chairman of VWAG presented the city of Reifniz with the Granite Golf. Which is a 1:1 scale MK2 GTI statue chiseled from a solid block of granite(pictured below).
SoWo this year was May 17th – 19th 2013. Though the show started on Friday many of the vendors and spectators started to arrive on Thursday the 16th to get the party started early.
And on to the show.
