New England Dustoff 2014
April 28, 2014
From the first flakes of snow, everyone I know who is into cars longs for this day. Unlike Dubs on Defrost, which is basically the biggest get together you have ever seen, Dustoff is the official start of not only the VW show season, but the entire New England show season. Held at Seekonk Speedway in Seekonk Massachusetts, as claimed by the host on their website, nedustoff.com, this is easily the biggest Audi/VW show in New England. Every year they fill the entire track with cars. The track itself is a small oval, just a tad smaller than Beech Ridge over in Scarborough, but its still a fully functioning track in the summer months. Along with being a giant show it is also probably one of the very best as far as being organized. Every single car has a place and is parked accordingly, From MK1’s to MK6’s and on over to the Audi’s, they segment it perfectly. From down on the track you might think its just semi orderly chaos, but once you take a step back, up onto the bleachers you realize its perfection. They’ve had practice. A lot of practice. Year after year after year, a thousand or so cars show up and it seems to go off without a hitch or incident. On top of that I’ve heard few people complain about it being a strictly Audi/VW show, but personally im glad they keep it that way, adding more classes would just dilute the show. Its hard to walk into a show like this and not want to just go wild with the shutter, there’s just so much going on its hard to cover it all. Hell even the parking lot just outside the gates would put most shows and meets I’ve been too to shame, and there’s plenty outside the gates beyond VW’s to keep anyone busy. My favorite thing about this show is not only does it draw some of the Finest outta hiding from Maine, but also the very Finest from all over New England.
