World Record attempt for the Longest Convoy of Jeeps and VWs over the Skyway bridge.
If you own any model Jeep or VW then with open arms we invite you to be part of the event!
If you would like to check out the vehicles at our final location, then meet us at Ft Desoto Park, shelter #12 at 12pm as that's when the vechicles will start rolling in.
We are going to meet at the Walmart Supermarket parking lot, 6225 FL-64, Bradenton Fl, 34208 at 9am and will end up at Ft Desoto Park, shelter #12 for the meet and greet. This is where you will be able to check out all the Jeeps and VWs that will be part of the event.
The Convoy will cruise through the streets of Bradenton and lead us to Florida's beautiful Sunshine Skyway Bridge. From that point we are all meeting at Ft. Desoto Park shelter #12 to enjoy the day and see which group had the biggest turn out. I personally think Jeeps will wiln this battle with the most to show up. (Says the Jeep owner)
