The show weekend is coming up quick!

The Sat afternoon is going to be one not to miss! We have just added "The Bus Movie" to the list of events.

The Sunday show is filling up quick! We hop it will be the largest yet!
See you soon!

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!

the all VW cruise on Saturday from the SGVWA Pancake Breakfast at Regency VW to the Vintage Speed & Collectables Event http://www.airspeedparts.com/forums/index.php?topic=23526.0 has been modified and improved to include a 30 minute pit stop at beautiful Cates Park!!

the park has the famous Wally's Burgers concession for snacks, a kids playground, washrooms and plenty of room to stretch your legs and hang out before continuing on to the Vintage Speed & Collectables Event!!





please note...the cruise is open to any and all ACVW's and H2OVW's and is always a lot of fun and a great time spent cruising with your VW buddies!! maps will be handed out to all participants and the cruise will be led by Zündfolge Car Club members Thomas (white '58 ragtop beetle) and Geevy (white '70 convertible beetle)!





there will be no drive up Seymour mountain due to air quality & smoke issues from the active forest fires in bc (we hope everyone and their families in those areas are safe and secure).

tell him stop by the Zündfolge Car Club tent and introduce himself and we'll give him a cold beverage and warm welcome!!

time to get this party started...see you all tomorrow at the AVR BBQ & Open House before the drags at Mission!!

Great pics Marc. I especially like the convoy ones at the end. Matt's SC looks sick when it's rolling.
