No matter what your VW interest is, there's something for everyone at the BUG-IN. Our 1/8th mile Drag Racing is action packed non-stop entertainment, running all throughout the afternoon. We have a participant judged car show with a dozen classes to choose from, which can sometimes attract over 500 cars. Vendors from all the top companies in the industry have displays in our "Manufactures Midway" located right behind the grand stands in the middle of all the action. Lastly, the Swap Meet at the BUG-IN stretches over nearly half the parking lot, and could take you all afternoon just to walk.

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 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.

The Drag Day is an event held twice a year in Southern California. Geared more toward the motor head VW Junkie, the Hot VWs Drag day has much to offer for every kind of VW Enthusiast. Of course there is the action packed 1/8th mile drag racing that takes place, which on some days can attract over 100 racers at any given event. Although there is no "car show" at this event, we do offer a Show N' Shine display area for any VW up near the PITS. The Drag Day also offers a huge Swap Meet that seems to keep getting larger and larger as each year passes. The Drag Day is a fun event no matter what you like about Volkswagens. Whether you're into racing, want to catch a good deal in the Swap Meet or just looking for an excuse to drive your VW and come hang out, the the Drag Day has everything to offer.
