Episode 85: Volkswagen Press Conference

No pun or pop culture reference in the title of today’s episode. That’s right, today I’m going for sleek, German efficiency as a welcoming tribute to our new corporate overlords.

If you’ve ever been in the VIP (now Volkswagen) Lounge for a function or an equipment sale, you would be shocked at how it looks.  A complete paint job in white, with the exposed celing in black, with a nice image of Jaime Moreno silk-screened on one wall, and some comfortable chairs and couches. It looks fantastic and actually fitting for VIPs now.  There was also a big VW logo above the bar. I asked Fred Matthes when it got renovated and he said, “In the past 72 hours. It felt like one of those HGTV shows.”

Walking down to the press conference, I saw Dave Johnson, who, despite his schedule, always has time for a chat. We talked about Gordon Bradley and I complimented him on the beautiful tribute he wrote about him on Behind The Badge.
