One of the highlights of the annual VW Classic weekend is the VW COLLECTIBLES SHOW held at the host hotel, the Irvine Wyndham, on Saturday afternoon, the day before the VW Classic. The doors open to the public at 2pm giving everyone a chance to check out the OCTO show in the morning. This year each of the first 200 attendees will get a vintage VW Classic collector’s pin. These are original pins from the 1987 and 1988 events that were found in storage and have been donated to the show.

At this year’s Collectible Show, another new feature, Door Prizes, will be announced at 3:30pm. Venders and spectators will get one ticket each for a chance to win a very special vintage tin VW model restored by Bob Gilmore and a hand painted egg by Ron Petro, along with some other cool stuff to be announced. Bob will be at the show with a display of rare early vintage tin VW models, Ron will have a table and will sign his art, and rumor has it that Dee Berg has been cleaning out some storage over at Gene Berg Enterprises and will have a couple tables of cool VW collectibles.

The show winds down at 4pm to give everyone plenty of time to go out to dinner and take in some bowling with Clyde Berg. Spectators are $5, kids under 12 are free. Tables are $40. The Irvine Wyndham Hotel is located just across the 405/San Diego Freeway from the Orange County/John Wayne Airport and only a few off ramps north of the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre where the VW Classic will take place on Sunday. For hotel reservations call 949.863.1999 and mention the VW Classic for your special room rate.
