Counter Kultur, Underground Motorsports and poOR Man Designs donated money from what they brought in at the show.
And we had 8 people walk away with plaques!

See the comments section below for the links to the photography page to see the cars...or better yet check the or threads. For some reason blogger is not letting me copy and paste...grrr.

Wednesday June 16, 2010

Today is Wednesday and everything is ready to go for the show. I think.

I have people to help me out Saturday. They'll get there after me, but before the start of the show, and that is all I ask.
Someone is taking care of the camping gear, because I am not.
I have someone else worrying about the speed bumps, because I am not low and hadn't noticed!
Spectator parking will have to work itself out the day of, because I ran out of time to prep for that. 

NGP Racing is delivering their goods to me.

So all I need to do is clean the car and pack it up.

Call/text or email me with any questions!  *Google the directions...because that's what I am going to recommend you do.

See you there!

questions...questions...and more questions....

So I have had a ton of questions from people who have never been to Dub N Rub before about the 'classes' and judging.
First off, there's no 'classes'. I created the show to be more of a get together...for air and water cooled to chill next to one another. For drivers to hang out, and admire one another's efforts.  It's a very laid back day.  The plaques are my way of making it a bit more interesting. It honestly comes down to the individual with the ballot. When you register you don't tell me what you want to be judged as. So regardless of if you are nuts may end up walking away with the All Natural.  If it gets to be a bigger, then it probably will evolve into more of a 'true' show...but for now it is what it is.

Saggiest: Lowered pretty much sums it up.  If you like what you for it.

All Natural: daily driver that is a pretty all encompassing category...but it's to include the cars that are driven every day, but still manage to look decent.

Best Cleavage: best display this means that the person took some time to either include pictures of their build, trophies from other shows, or even a theme.  Sort of a broad concept, but you'll get it when you see some of the cars display's.

Best Topless: convertibles again pretty much means anything that the top comes off.

Perkiest: high performance can mean many things to different people, but when I came up with it I was thinking of the folks who took time to redo their engines et al to get as much fast as they could.

Inner Beauty: overall interior was a request by someone...and it turned out to be a good idea.  Whether you have a theme, or just a super clean interior you could be walking away with a plaque. Does it all tie together well, is the trim matching/not falling off...has it been lint rolled?

Junk in the Trunk: sound system I like base...I want to feel it in my chest.

Most Supportive: Most supportive of breast cancer awareness  It is what the show is for, so do what you want and make me know that you are all about the boobies!
The day of the show you can ask me if you have any other questions, but honestly I do not interfere with judging unless I have to. I know too many people, and I don't want it to become a "who does Sharon like better" contest.
You are more then welcome to email or call/text me with questions...but read,,, (mid-atlantic region area), to get a better understanding of what the day is like.   Or better yet, just show up and check it out for yourself.  The worst case scenario is you pay $1 to support the ta-ta's.

9 days

9 days...9 days until Dub N Rub!
I got my people coming over Sunday to stuff goodie bags. My people...ahhh, if it wasn't for my great friends and boyfriend I am not sure how successful the preparation would have been!  So this is my official 'I appreciate you!' post.

I want to thank all the people who have volunteered to help me out the day of the show.  Who have gone to pick stuff up for me. Who have listened to me whine. Those who've done alterations on files. Helped recruit volunteers.  All the people and companies that have donated raffle items, goodie bag items, and helped promote the show with/for me!!

Thank you for all your help! Without you I may have lost the little sanity I hold on to.

OMG...I just realized I need decent directions. Every single time I drive up there I get lost. I still get lost going to Vision...I take the same wrong turn every single time.

16 days...

With only 16 days left, I'm starting to feel the excitement!

Brady's in Willow Street donated services via a gift certificate.

I have to go on the 15th to pick up the plaques from Awards & Beyond in New Cumberland.  They did last year's and they turned out terrific.

I have to call a couple of people who are last minute types, but no worries. I have faith in them to get the job done~

I will have to do some shopping to prepare for camping...but not too much because I have all the smore's ingredients already!!  I just need beer, and I think that's it. Lulz.

You may start to see my last name change...but it's still me! I can be reached at both email addresses as the transition phase occurs!

That's it for now. Any questions? email or call me

Breast Cancer Programs

One of the main reasons I chose to support the American Cancer Society is the programs they have for breast cancer patients.

Look Good...Feel Better
The Look Good...Feel Better® program is a free, community-based, national service that helps women learn beauty techniques to help restore their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Volunteer beauty professionals lead small groups, usually consisting of 6 to 10 women, through practical, hands-on experience. In a fun, encouraging environment, women learn about skin care, makeup techniques, nail care, and options related to hair loss such as wigs, turbans, and scarves. Each program participant receives a free kit of cosmetics for use during and after the workshop. For women who are unable to attend a group workshop, a free, one-time, individual salon consultation with a volunteer cosmetologist may be available. A free self-help brochure for men also is available.

The Look Good...Feel Better program is offered by the American Cancer Society in collaboration with the Personal Care Products Council and the National Cosmetology Association. All cosmetology volunteers attend a 4-hour certification class.

This is just one of the programs the American Cancer Society has in place. Check out their website to see where your money goes once you donate to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.

Old City Oil Drippers Stepping up to the plate to Save 2nd Base

I have been posting on various forums about Dub N Rub...vwvortex, thesamba, dubkorps,, and dubsontheboards specifically...and made mention that stickers/vinyl would not be done this year due to budget constraints. Well OCOD's Brian Batzel and Rick Milne got their heads together and offered up stickers for DnR as their donation to the cause.  Rick did a little tweaking on the original, and here is the final proof of the sticker. 
I am tickled pink...pun fully intended...and am very grateful to OCOD.  They've been such great supporters of DnR from the beginning by promoting it at Dripfest. 

I can't thank them enough. If you haven't made plans yet be at Dripfest June 5th~ I know I will be!

Stopped by Thru It All Body Shop in Mount Joy PA yesterday morning and spoke with Keith who is an air cooled guy!  He donated a few shirts for the raffle.

Hours: Mon-Fri 8:00-5:00

1230 West Main St. Mount Joy, Pa. 17552

They are typically five kilometers (3.1 miles) or five miles in length.
The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help people touched by cancer.

Underground Motorsports

"Creeping ain't easy"  according to Underground Motorsports website. 

They are a brand new company started locally out of Lebanon PA.  They sell skid plates for MKII and MKIII VW's...and if you saw them at Volksfest you may have bought one of their t-shirts!  (Think Weimaraner and you know you were at their booth.)

If you missed them, they are coming to Dub N Rub!

tick tock

As I was reminded last night the show is approaching...and I am feeling the need to solicit!
I spent Saturday morning trolling forums and the internet to see which local companies get mentioned with good it looks like I am going to be taking a day off in the next few weeks so I can drive around and beg. 

I also am beginning to stress about the show set up. All these little things are starting to build up, and my ulcer's kicking in!  But I suppose I am not suppose to talk about this stuff, right? These are not the droids you are looking for.

I posted a link from my Facebook page to my page on the Making Strides against Breast Cancer site.  If you can't make the show, take 2 minutes to donate a few bucks to Saving 2nd Base!

50 Days...

Since my last post:
- Renegade VW donated a few t-shirts to the show. Thanks Ryan! He's got a ton of merchandise up on his

- The postcards came in and were handed out at Volksfest. The Dutch Dubbers were given a handful to hand out, and I need to mail Brian of OCOD a pack of postcards to hand out at Dripfest.

- Lost Dog Photos, which if you remember took pictures last year in the torrential coming again to Dub N Rub! This year, they're going to be selling some vinyl creations they've been working on. Jen & Tim are awesome people. You may have seen them at may have even bought a few of their "offensive stickers".  Check out PoOr Man Designs on Facebook! 

- Universal Tire has donated some items that are going into the goodie bags.

- The campground has been rented for Saturday into Sunday, and already have 12 sites booked up! It's shaping up to be a great weekend!!

So many things have occurred in the last month that I'm sure I am missing something, but fear'll see it all at the show!!

Where the money goes

Taken directly from the American Cancer Society website (

Thanks to people like you, the American Cancer Society has invested more in cancer research over time than any other voluntary public health organization. As the nation’s largest source of private, nonprofit cancer research funds, the American Cancer Society has distributed more than $3.3 billion to researchers since 1946. They take pride in funding promising researchers early in their careers, and our track record is something we share with pride. Of the researchers chosen for Society funding throughout the years, 44 have gone on to win the Nobel Prize. In fact, the Society invests more in breast cancer research than any other tumor site. Your support has allowed the American Cancer Society to be involved in nearly every major breast cancer research breakthrough of the last century, including:

  • Funding research into breast-conserving surgery, using lumpectomy plus radiation for treatment  
  • Establishing mammography as the gold standard to find breast cancer early
  • Discovering lifesaving treatments (such as Herceptin) to improve breast cancer survival and drugs (such as Tamoxifen) to reduce the risk of second or first breast cancer
  • Discovering genes for inherited breast and colon cancer
  • Knowledge that genetics, diet, lack of exercise, and alcohol abuse can increase a person's cancer risk
  • Discovering cancer-causing oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes

While the Society spends more on breast cancer than on any other solid tumor site, many of the research grants we support may have relevance to many kinds of cancers. Currently, breast cancer research projects are underway at institutions across the country, thanks in large part to the funds raised by Making Strides Against Breast Cancer participants. With your continued help, we can fund more critical research projects one of which could result in a breakthrough that would lead to fewer diagnoses and lower the number of deaths from breast cancer each year.

Honestly not much has occcurred to update you all on. The show is being held June 19, 2010 at Maple Grove Park (behind the Speedway).  Vision Auto Group in Leesport PA is our only sponsor this year...but I am beginning to collect goodie bag and raffle items.  Brian Yohn from ShedPress is working with me to get the t-shirts and postcards ready for the show.  Not only will there be adult sizes, but there's going to be children sizes too. 
NGP Racing and Universal Tire are two companies who are going to be donating items for the goodie bags.
Since the show is in a different location this year, I am very interested in finding companies closer down that way. If you have a favorite shop, let me know and I'll make some phone calls!

Can't wait to see you there,

Pink Glove Dance: Providence St Vincet Medical Center

Go to YouTube and search Providence St Vincent Pink Glove Dance.

As per Medline Media Room:

More than 200 employees of Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon recently went beyond simply wearing new pink gloves to spread the word about breast cancer awareness – they danced in them. And now their fun and touching video – “The Pink Glove Dance” – has become a hit on YouTube with more than 75,000 views within just a few days of posting.

“The Pink Glove Dance,” which features the artist Jay Sean’s hit song “Down,” includes employees from practically every area of the hospital from the CEO to nurses, doctors, cooks, cleaning services, lab technicians and even a cancer patient. Sean recently viewed the video and commented on his official website –

“The vid is awesome...medicine will always be close to my heart and this is such a worthy and important cause. So maybe I could have been a doctor and a singer at the same time after all then!? Just Brilliant.”

According to his website, he gave up a career in medicine to follow his passion in music. However, he still has fond memories and admiration for those in the medical professions.

The pink gloves featured in the video were provided by Medline Industries, Inc., which recently introduced its new “Generation Pink” gloves. A portion of the sales from the gloves is going to fund mammograms for the underserved population. Based in Mundelein, Illinois, Medline is a manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies and the leading provider of exam gloves in the U.S.

Welcome to 2010

Welcome to 2010!

This year is starting off slightly different than previously. First off, I had to get a new blog. The old blog is still available to peruse...but I can't access it. Google/Blogspot is very tight with security and confidentiality, and if you forget your password and your "secret question" answer you are pretty much not getting in! Which is commendable when it's not your blog you are trying to liberate. But I am moving forward, and starting fresh.

You can access the previous blog at
It is a wealth of information on the previous two year's. Hopefully everyone enjoys the new (and improved) blog just as much.
