Do-dads Reunion Vintage Drag & Show – I wanted to visit this event for few years, but it always clashes with WRC Finland. This year I just didn’t do the rally. I was very committed and even started a vlog. Very DIY one: shot on phone, edited on phone. Take a look ;)
Now, let’s see the proper photo report. Let’s start with the Finnish take on cosplay.
Who did James Dean better?
Those who were less into cosplay, just wore Dickies shorts, trucker’s cap and some Converse.. as I did too
Event was held at Oripää Airfield, 200km away from Helsinki. Big part of the ground was covered by american muscles, custom cars and classics.
How many Citroen hot rods have you seen? This is my first one. It’s also road legal. Owner just made the frame stronger, showed it to the committee and got approved (well, I think the process took a year).
And as I was saying, take pics of your friend’s car ;) especially if they make drawings on your skin that last forever.
This reminds me of a Mad Max movie
How much is too much?
There was also a contest area for invited “beauty queens”
Yes, there were custom bikes and coffee racers, but I know so few about them :(
This was the most badass lady I saw that weekend. She raced herself into semi-finals by the way.
What’s your tribe’s name?
Yes, racing. There was that. A proper vintage dragrace, even with a flagger.
This can be a spin off from The Taxi Driver
Definitely never seen an Impala with racing harnesses.. did I saw an Impala with seat belts at all??
Let’s walk through the pits
Photographers had custom vests also. Mine was less cute :(
Loved the Mooneyes “dress”
I definitely loved the custom trophies
