    Looks like I'll be going in my work van, T4 has mot but needs more work to get her running right, just got to sort out what day to go on, there's another show on locally and missus wants to go to a summer fayre too.

    So for my 1st ever VW event I was a bit disappointed.
    Went today, tried speaking to a few T4 owners, asking questions like-What wheels are they?, where they a straight fit or any mods needed?,
    Most who I spoke too where some of the most unhelpful moody twat's I've ever met, not sure if it was the heat or they where hungover,
    Even my wife found them awkward to speak to.
    I thought the VW scene was a friendly family type affair but today was anything but.

    Will try another show around Kent at some point and hope to meet nicer types.

    We went to a meet at Staverton airport once, they do one at the end of every month. We were made to feel real unwelcome, they were all so clicky. One chap who came over who was also there for the first time said no one had spoken to him in over an hour. We havenít been again, funny thing was they had a right up in one of the vw mags stating that any one was welcome and how friendly they was. Full of shit.

    I've always tried to be friendly and willing to share any knowledge I may have and helping someone out.
    Can't see why people meet up and then act like total tears around new people,
    Said hi to some bloke and said I too have a 93plate T4, just started doing it up and think his was real nice, got a very dull cheers from him, when I asked what sort of wheels had he fitted I got the reply of Round ones!, lost my patience and said well done bell and, hope they go square.
    He was surprised and asked why so unfriendly.
    His little mates gathered round and asked what my problem was.
    Told them dicks like them make it hard for people to get involved with groups and need to stop being arseholes.

    Wife wasn't impressed and walked away.
    One guy came up and said Amen to that. He had the same problem getting crap replies and shunned.

    Fair play to you for telling them what you thought of them , there’s twats in every ‘ scene ‘ which is a shame as it’s so hard to break into that group , I tend to be Billy no mates where ever I go .

    Years ago I used to show my car with the west wales rs owners club group , some made me feel welcomed others hated me for owning an old escort ,as they’re into the new focus rs cars and enter concours and think they are amazing because they win trophies with their 6 month old car .

    I even heard them say ‘ here he comes with his rusty shed ‘ funny really as it had a bare metal respray ! I told the chairmen where to shove his trophies and my escort has been unused for the past 7yrs , fastfoward a year ago and the chairmen rang me up wanting to buy my car , I told him , I thought it was a rusty shed and politely told him to F off , karma is a wonderful thing and if your lucky enough god will let you witness it
