As Unitronic, the official sponsor of Southern Wörthersee puts it, “Our inspiration for Southern Wörthersee is to bring together cars and fans of these beloved marques in a truly authentic European atmosphere.”
What they have done is just that.
This post may be a little bit different than normal. The images are random shots that I took during Southern Worthersee this past weekend in Helen, Georgia; but while the words may not match up, I hope you’ll get something more from them.
This is story time, with your host, CLB.
SoWo started for me back in January. Mike and I bought our plane tickets while we were sitting in the living room of his parents’ house in Tennessee during the week of New Years.

“It’s HIDEOUS! I want it ” Most girls only care about pretty things and Carol Thelen is no exception. What makes Carol unique from most girls is that she immediately sees the potential and enjoys the adventure of building a beautiful car. While in Seattle on an internship I bought a clean, one grandmother owned, 1992 VW Golf GL for a daily. I had dirty thoughts of making into a track car when my other car was finished.
We are about to give you a short series on various perspectives from some of the StanceWorks photographers / members who got a chance to experience the wonderful weekend, referred to as Southern Worthersee. This first post is from the eyes of our good friend, Matt Dobre. Matt comes into everything he does with a sense of spontaneity and enthusiasm and it shows in his pictures.
Releasing today is AWOL’s take on the revered Austrian euro festival simply known as “Worthersee.” The coverage makes it clear that the Europeans don’t mess about when it comes to their car builds. The scenery, both agricultural and curvaceous in nature, don’t hurt the production process either.
If you thought that was all you would be seeing..
