2013 So Cal Vintage Treffen

So Cal Vintage Treffen

They say a photograph is worth a thousand words. In this case, we have a fantastic story to tell. The So Cal Vintage Treffen took place on September 8th, 2013. I wasn’t able to attend this year. However, our contributing So Cal photographer and good pal Timm Eubanks was on location, camera in hand. A huge thanks to him for providing his talent and time to 1967beetle.com.

“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 1957 and earlier Beetles and “Press Bumper” Busses, 1959 and earlier 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 Finishing Touches for Your Vintage Volkswagen™

I created and curate 1967beetle.com. I own and restored a 1967 VW Beetle that my Grandfather bought new. Have a question? Own an air cooled VW? Say hello!

Covetousness is a sin! But, it would be nice to have one of these older vintage Beetles! We can all dream. Here in Texas, it is a rare sight to see so many "Oldies" in one place. They command a lot of attention when they do appear. Unfortunately, some of the radical modifications these days are aimed at the older VWs. This usually renders them useless to restoration to stock factory condition later. They are disappearing before our very eyes in my neck of the woods. If I live a few more years, I will see the day when the average person will be unable to afford even the "lowly Beetle" as a driver, much less as a restored vintage vehicle. Pardon me while I shed a quick tear. jay salser
