Older model Volkswagen’s were featured at the 17th annual VW Club Car Show in Hampton, Illinois.

It was a rare chance to see older VWs in our area.

“They’re unusual to see around this area in particular, unless you have a collector car, rust and the salt around this area has ate a lot of them up,” said Phil Vernon.

The event was held Saturday and Sunday, August 18 and 19, 2012.

About 70 cars were expected to turn out for the cause.

Proceeds raised through admission charged for the event was promised to Camp Courageous.

Camp Courageous serves children with disabilities, allowing them to enjoy the camp experience year-round.
