Texas Vintage Volkswagen Classic

033 - eDf3M2C
The Texas VW Classic took place April 18th – 19th. I wasn’t able to take part, but our talented friend Matt Jackson was in attendance, camera in hand. They say a photo is worth a thousand words. With that in mind, I’d like to share with you a nice array captured from the weekend.

Thanks, Matt!

“Welcome to the Texas VW Classic located in the historic town of Fredericksburg, Texas. Surrounded by the scenic and sometimes wildflower covered hill country of central Texas, Fredericksburg is the perfect venue for a classic Volkswagen show. VW’s of all types, colors and makes show up to fill the streets around town and nearly every parking lot in town has a classic VW. The old German settlement not only offers a beautiful area to cruise the tourist lined streets in your classic vehicle but is also home to some of the best craft & antique shopping, music venues, and German restaurants west of Frankfurt.

The Texas VW Classic, held annually the third weekend in April, has grown into a three day event with some participants arriving to set up camp on Thursday afternoon. In addition to on-site VW and tent camping for participants, Fredericksburg offers a unique array of quaint accommodations including Bed & Breakfast options, local and chain hotels. Reservations should be made early due to the popularity of the area this time of year.”

Also, a big thanks to all the ’67 owners that emailed wanting to meet me in person. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to make it this year. It’s an honor to be a part of 1967beetle.com.

Hate to see these vw bugs becoming low riders and tricked out. Prefer the original look right off the factory floor. How can anyone drive a car with wheels so close to the fenders and inches off the ground.

Robert, Yeah, I' not a fan either. But, to each his own. My '67 will always be stock.

Major trend here in California to "slam" them as low as possible then not be able to enter your own driveway without scraping the underside! Kind of like watching paint dry to watch one of these painfully climb over even the slight incline of the owner's driveway! The conversion also prevents carrying passengers in the back seat because the "Equalizer Spring" has been removed and the weight of a passenger allows for tire rubbing! And, unfortunately, another "significant part" lost to the '67! Another travesty for the '67 is converting stock door windows to the "California Look" of one-piece of window glass! The damage to the interior structure of the door can never be reversed! Especially painful for the '67 because only another '67 door, from a donor car, can be used if a new owner wants the stock look back! I have two '67 doors waiting to be hung, painted then rebuilt to replace the "modification damaged" doors on my '67! I guess on the positive side there are more of these great cars kept alive to be enjoyed!
