After visiting events in Germany like Bad Camberg and Hessisch Oldendorf, we wanted to bring an old German atmosphere together with strictly Vintage Volkswagens. The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, California is a true "old school" German Cultural Club, as well as the perfect host for an event like this. The So Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to 1961 and earlier "small taillight" Beetles and Busses, 1959 and earlier "low light" Karmann Ghias, Military Vehicles and early coachbuilts. Our first event held in September 2007 turned out to be a big success, and the plan is to hold it every other year opposite the Solvang Vintage Meet put on by the Golden Gate Chapter of the VVWCA. So if you have an old VW collecting dust in the garage and you want to show it off, or if you're just looking for an excuse to have an authentic German Bratwurst and beer... the So Cal Vintage Treffen is just the place for you.

Any additional tickets can be purchased at the front gate for $15 each. All vendors will be let in between 5:30am and 6:30am to be given time to set-up their Display. No vendors in after 6:30am.

The Phoenix Club is very limited on space, so we will have limited room for both Vendors and Swappers.

 


 Car Show Info 


For 2021 we will be showcasing Military Vehicles inside the tent.

Eligible vehicles for the Treffen include:

  • 1961 and earlier Beetles and Buses

  • 1961 and earlier Military Vehicles

Because of our limited room at the Phoenix Club, we have to limit the vehicle count to 200. If there are spots available after pre-registration closes, we will take entries the day of the event until our maximum capacity is reached.  

$65 Deluxe Entry: This pass includes one (1) person and one (1) vehicle. Any passengers in the vehicle will need to purchase an additional Spectator entry for $15. For your Deluxe Entry you will be included in the "Participant Judged" portion of the event and receive the "Wolfsburg West Goodie Bag" including the limited edition, numbered car badge and dash plaque. If you have entered in a previous Treffen event and would like the same number as before, that can be arranged. Also, the vehicles picked to park in the Beer Garden and Festal-Tent will be chosen from our Deluxe Entries only. 
Deluxe entries will also have the option to load in early on Saturday afternoon between 3pm and 6pm and pre-stage their vehicles.
There will be 24hr Security overnight at the Phoenix Club
