Dave Galassi's Open House 2012
« on: July 17, 2013, 05:32:18 PM »
Dave Galassi is a VW friend who throws an impromptu yearly open house at his shop in an unincorporated area of Irwindale (not far from the old drag strip).  Dave likes VW's but I think he LOVES old Gassers even more and this years edition was no exception.  Plenty of cold beverages, a taco cart and free ice cream cones (this event is always held on the hottest day of the year for some reason) only adds to the fun of tire kicking and bench racing.  Then there's the "show" in the street out in front of the shop..... usually followed in short order by the cops ::)  GOOD TIMES!

Dave's event looks like something I'd consider traveling to CA for.
Half a mile from the county fair.

Definitely!!  It's pretty amazing that the cops are cool... they always seem to come by each year to see what's happening.   ::)

Thanks, Tom!  Pete Eastwood (Ed Pink T-shirt and restorer of the Old Master digger) is planning a "display" for next years show... :o
