Ride of the Month Prize
Congrats to Mike Melbert for his awesome GTI - a well deserved winner. But it was a close call between him, Glenn, Daniel and Jake. We'd also like to acknowledge the photo skills of Rick as well as Jude's action shot. Scott clearly has a cool car but way too much vinyl.

Mike wins one of our Wheel eT-shirts. These limited edition shirts are available in S, M and XL.
