13thPeninsula Automotive hosted the 13th Annual Car Show and Swap Meet and Storewide Sale on Sunday, September 8, 2013. It was a great day for all the friends and families who joined us for a day of fun and excitement. We enjoyed over 75 beautiful Volkswagens competing for 1st and 2nd place, Best of Show, and Peoples’ Choice awards.

 

The highlight of the show was the very popular VW Engine Blow! The engine ran full throttle for a few minutes before it started to smoke. then came flames which were quickly extinguished. Another great puff of smoke and sputtering, and then the engine seized up. Once again, the excitement brought loud cheers and applause from the spectators. If you would like to see for yourself, check out the video.
