Finding car enthusiasts in this particular of New York is few and far between, and locating cars that are clean and thought out is almost non existent. M. Biagini one of our good friends, is not brand loyal to say the least. Jumping from Acura, BMW, Infiniti to this current MKIV Volkswagen. What you see here today has come along way from what it was. This car was pretty much rebuilt in less than six months. Originally taking storage in a body shop storage lot, Biagini saw this as an opportunity to bring it back to its former glory.
I remember that day Biagini called me and asked my opinion of this car. Told him that I remember the original owner having it and seeing it on a daily basis and if purchased, it would be a good platform to start off with.
This was pretty much the first rebuild of a car that Biagini has done. He had to source a new engine and bought every single OEM interior piece new. Patience and time where critical especially when dealing with everyday life issues.
Being that this is his first VW, no electrical gremlins have make their way into this car just yet. His future plans are maybe to sell it and get the Nissan 350Z he has always dreamed about.
When you think it’s time to put your car away for the season, you remember that H20i is hosted at the end of September. Ocean City Maryland hosts this event when this summer destination would be a ghost town. If you think H2oi is just for the VW/Audi crowd, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. People with a variety of cars land here in Maryland for a weekend of looking at ridiculous cars and non-stop drinking and partying.
Since 2010 this event was held in the last weekend of September, where the weather can be unpredictable and downright nasty. 2012 was no different, Weather on Friday night when most people got here, ruined the night’s local meets on 45th Street at OC Steamers. People were forced back to their hotels, condos, local bars to do some well deserved drinking.
H2oi has gotten so popular that alot of people don’t even go the formal event which is held on Sunday. People like to attend what happens over the weekend. There are meets everywhere that are held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Just look on Facebook or ask around. If you never been to Ocean City for H2oi, you should plan for next year and this event is one of our favorites.
