VIP In the Fast Lane!

    On February 28th, nearly 2,000 people swarmed the parking lots of Camana Bay for the two-day Cayman Auto and Boat Expo. Anything new and exciting in the industries, rare collectors' items, custom cars and cycles, race cars and so much more were put on display for the public to enjoy at the show. VIP was tapped by Autohaus Ltd.'s Christian van der Bol to create a promotional video for his exhibit, as well as film the event. Autohaus Ltd. is Cayman's official Mercedes and Porsche dealer and were a highlight of the weekend with their display of the world's first motorized carriage, made in 1886 by Karl Benz. 

Also on display at the show was a replica of the first ever Cayman Islands NASCAR to race at Daytona.  There was food, music and good times all around at Camana Bay over the course of the Expo, and if you weren't there this year, be sure and come out for the next show. We'll see you there!
