The ClassicS

The VW ClassicS. This has always been the show to attend and experience. Folks from every corner of the world imaginable flock out to sunny southern California for this event, and the other bbq’s/open houses/parties/events/shows which go on during the week. I’ve been attending this event since 1988 and it seems like it gets bigger each year? I have no idea how event organizers go about the voting process. What a headache since there are countless awesome VW’s scattered all over the place. This year the organizers added a new category which is long over due ( at least 25 years! ). The PATINA class. Many guys, like myself, who’ve been into the original paint rides or what it is referred to now, The Patina look, were really glad this Patina movement is finally getting some sort of recognition.  Hopefully by next year Pück’s “Patina’d” 1963 Beetle will be in attendance next year. Mazol Tov to the winner of this new Patina Category. BTW, I’ve liked this bug since I first saw it.

 

The ClassicS has always been a social event for myself, with so many friends from all over the world congregating in one location. Lots of clubs debut their newest creations as well other clubs with their old faithful’s. What makes this event for me is the massive bbq my buddies, The Campodian’s and the GFK, put on. Food galore!

 

This event is truly massive with endless VW’s for the eyes to see. A must for sure.

 

Here is a shot early in the morning of us getting ready to leave the Holy city of Slam Gabriel and make our voyage to Irvine.
