My wife, Neva, and I have been driving and working on VWs since 1976. In fact, we raised our family in these cars. Now, we are retired and enjoy VWs as a hobby. The ’67 Beetle always has been our favorite year. We own a '67 Beetle and a '68 Karmann Ghia.

  1. So good, Jay! Thanks, Ron for helping others connect. Semper Fi.


  2. Come one, come all! Looks like fun and a great way to meet people. This is the 19th year this event has taken place. Treffen 2017 starts in Port Angeles, WA on July 21. Diane and I are shipping our cars to Vancouver, WA and hooking up with Treffen in Astoria, Oregon. We will be finishing with the group in San Diego on July 30.

    We are doing it with another couple (1971 Beetle) and then driving back to Phoenix. That last leg will be long and HOT!

    Hope to hear from you!


  3. Great! I usually meet up with the group and take photos in Oceanside (north San Diego) to cruise south. I might go farther north as my starting point this year and capture more of the cruise.
    Come on out Eric! Ride with me.


    1. Timm, send me your email and I’ll attach the itinerary.


  4. That sounds like fun!


  5. Timm, let me see what I can do. VWBH™


  6. Hello, West Coast Readers of! I am excited to see how many of you and others who can participate from nearby States can connect during the Treffen. What a neat opportunity. Even if you can make only a portion of the trip–it will be worth the effort. Go ’67 Community! jay salser
