**Normally, HighwayStar Manny writes these little tidbits on up while myself, HighwayStar Patrick, tries to capture the event through my “eye”. But, Manny decided that this should be written up by me to give another “perspective” to the event. Plus, Roxanne Racekor was being testy and demanding a burrito from Manny at the time, so he didn’t have the time to. 😉 **

There are very few big shows that all of us HighwayStars get to enjoy and hang out at out of the state of Florida. Southern Worthersee, or SoWo, is definitely one of them. Every year, Helen, Georgia is the destination for many VW’s/Audi’s/BMW’s and other vehicles arrive at to enjoy a weekend of cars, friends and local scenery.

Many say H2Oi is a bigger show and has more ‘to do’ over all. BUT, SoWo is show that you want to go to if you want to enjoy and relax with old and new friends, while still enjoy all the beautiful vehicles that decide to populate this quiet, little town.
The reason for SoWo’s popularity is the laid back atmosphere. Hell, there is a lazy river that you can tube down in the middle of town! People come from all over the US (Mark P. and 2300 miles or bust from Cali), and even Canada (crazy kids. Yes, that means you Corrigan 😉 ) to have a drink with old friends, and make new friends as well. SoWo is a place where you can unwind, enjoy the show, but also enjoy the town itself. A place where shops and business openly welcome the many people and cars that populate the town in that one weekend.
With the influx of people and cars, and how the shows popularity continues to grow, capturing all that was there is always a challenge. But, at least you can see a small glimpse of what did decide to show up to this quant little town.

One of the show stoppers at SoWo was this beautiful New Beetle that was actually Plasti-dipped and on air ride that won Best in Show. Beautifully done and well executed, this car was given a spot on Car Crazy which will air on August 12th.
