      We`re a group of guys who own Classic VWs in the Barrie area, in Ontario, Canada. During the summer months (May - September), we attend the local classic car shows. They are held Wednesday and Saturday evenings on Bayfield St., just north of Hwy 400.

      Aside from those two public events, we hold our own private club members only events throughout the year. Please check our msg forum to see when and where these events take place.

      Check out our website - http://1432ndsquadron.yolasite.com/

      we started the club up roughly 1 month ago and the response has been great. So far roughly 19 members - everyone is very active in the forums too.

      1432 - is the firing order of a flat-4 (boxer) engine! cylinder 1, then 4, then 3, then 2.

      there are a few pictures in the gallery section of our forum! We meet on the 3rd Saturday of every month at a members house - drinks and shoot the ****.

      We are in the middle of organizing a local show/get together for aircooled/h2o euros.

      spread the word!

      no way.... is this Gripton's ride? - we went to college together - had no idea he was in a club - told him last summer that I should take my beetle up to Barrie for a meet.

      will for sure try to keep the dates open

      I think he is making sure you are aware of the possible negative connotations associated with the symbol. Looks like you researched it, but a lot of people wouldn't know that. Me for one.
      Anyway, nice pics and good luck with your club.

      I put Iron Cross images and tail lights on my bug and was called "racist" by dumbass, uneducated rednecks whenever i filled up for fuel or local classic car meets. I understand the imagery in the club logo, but no matter what kind of German insignia you use, there will always be someone to remind us of our vehicle/cultures past.

      with respect the the non-aircooled local guys - i definitely want to include all h20 customs when we do our local get-together.

      Sure our club is dedicated to aircooled, however the way i look at it - same ****, different pile!

      we have a club meeting on the 19th. We will be determining the first get together, definitely would like all euro fanatics out.

      you guys have any location preferences/ideas? We always met up at the Bayfield/Kozlov classic car meets however we are open to other ideas/locations.

      My bro just finished his '90 VR6 conversion and i know of a dude with a slammed cabrio. I'm positive we could get out 20 or so cars.

      no offence,

      just sayin because vw is german, and so are nazi's

      now if you wanted to be neo car nazi's and destroy every car that wasn't a vw/audi i'm sure this town could use a z24 disposal service.


      just to be clear, i'm not hating or discriminating or looking for an argument,
      just voicing my opinion
      you my friend, are not welcome in the club.

      think before you speak.

      Nice, I've been seeing the air cooled rides whipping around town lately, I'm all for it. It'll be a while before my VR MKII is on the road but I will still make an appearance in the old ladies TDI

      Glad to see some organized VW action in Barrie again, it's been years since we used to get 20 plus cars down by the beach to dispurse the Uncle Ben's crowd.

    27. 04-15-2011 12:47 AM #27
      Wow, lotsa old timers in this thread. I remember you Skankahaulic, and Erich of course...

      I may be back in a VW this summer. Would love to get together and see what's up in the scene. I've been out of it for years...

    28. 04-15-2011 08:11 AM #28
      my whip is almost ready to roll!!!! gettin stupid close...looking forward to a cruise with other fellow aircoolers.

      **** me! Does there always have to be some complete d1ck head on these forums that insists on ruffling everyones feathers with measly politcial bullsh!t? Quit living in the past bud and fuk off! This is a forum for VW enthusiasts, not for flop d1cks like you with your cry baby political correctness. In case you didn't notice the logo was modified and if that doesn't suit you then too effen bad!
