A couple of weeks ago, I dusted off my favorite old cameras and headed up US 29 to Old Dominion Speedway, in Manassas, Virginia, for Bug Out 69. It was part of my never-ending rambling through the more obscure byways of American car culture.
I also figured that it would a lot of fun. What could be better than spending the day with hundreds of slightly wacky Volkswagen collectors, restorers, and racers from up and down the eastern seaboard and beyond? Nothing that I could think of.
It's not a Bug, but it sure is pretty, in a rat rod kind of way. Bug Out 69, Manassas, Virginia, 29 May 2011. (Photo copyright John Edwin Mason, 2011. Click on the image to see a much larger version.)
