VEGAS BABY

Words: David Kennedy

If you head to Las Vegas at the end of May you won’t just find scorching weather, gambling, stage shows that’ll blow your mind and everything else the City of Sin is known for, you’ll also find the Wuste European Car Festival. 2015 marked the event’s ninth year and once again the show lived up to its tagline as ‘the hottest event in the country’. Seriously, Las Vegas in the summer isn’t a place for those who don’t like the heat!

Luckily, the standard of cars in attendance makes the very real risk of melting in to the Tarmac like you’re in an episode of The Secret World of Alex Mack worth it; the show now attracts some of the finest metal from all corners of the West Coast. The event is held at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino and pretty much takes it over with all the rooms being booked out to showgoers and the surrounding parking lots being filled with cars. As far as show locations go, it’s pretty darn cool. Well, compared to your average Premier Inn or Travelodge over here it is anyway and we can only imagine there are more things to do in Vegas at night time than in, say, Telford for example! The show even puts on a shuttle bus service down to the main strip for those wishing to get their party on which no doubt resulted in a few people suffering even more in the oppressive heat the next day!

About Performance VW

Welcome to the Cool Britannia issue. The UK scene continues to push boundaries, bring out ideas and develop trends and put simply, blow our collective minds. So we thought it was about time we put together a special issue packed full of some of the UK’s finest cars to drop over the last year. With the flawless execution of Martin Barker’s restomod’d two-door Audi 80 to Jim Offord’s impeccable Mk2 G60 and Carl Levy’s homegrown Mk1 Caddy we’ve got the old school covered. And with Shaun Lewis’ ever-evolving T5 and Craig Levens’ incredible Mk5 we’ve got the new school wrapped up too. We haven’t forgotten the smaller Dubs either, Jamie Jackson’s 400bhp Lupo is a real giant-slayer and Jake Belfied’s carbed Mk2 Polo Coupe proves you don’t have to build a Golf to take the showfield by storm. Like the cars themselves, PVW magazine continues to grow, push boundaries and hopefully, inspire people as it goes. We’re in this together, and it’s a great place to be, Enjoy the issue.
