    1. 04-04-2012 03:23 AM #1

If your from MN (or surrounding states), go join the group. It would be greatly appreciated. And don't forget refer your friends with euros

      There's already a pretty sizable Twin Cities European car community.......

      Unlike eurowerks, we are going to try to set up monthly meets, not yearly.. And get some cruises/track days together. Just wanted a new group that people could actually get to know the members in it.

      give it a shot, it cant hurt to join

      I'm not trying to bash you or anything. I just thought, maybe, you didn't know eurowerks was here.

      Good luck, bud.

      interesting. why not just participate in eurowerks that already has a huge member base, a bunch of events, and several shows and cruises throughout the year? It's already yours. Just fire up events and have people come out. I don't get the need for this. Good luck I guess!

      I have tried to connect with some of the people and events in the eurowerks scene since moving to MN and this type of comment/behavior is exactly what I've come to expect. It's nothing but bashing new/young guys and posting their cars for sale for thousands more than there worth.

      I'll take this as a "no." It's hard to believe that an area as big as Minneapolis/St.Paul doesn't have a few water-cooled Beetle people.

      Does anybody remember volksport... All of these clubs seem to have a life span and i think Eurowerks' days are numbered. The same happened to Volksport and the circle will continue. Start your club , have some laughs, but remember all good things come to an inevitable end.
      Come on Minnesota. Gimme a reason to put on some snow tires.

      It's possible with enough time and people like BimmerTim that are on power trips and show favoritism.

      HAHAHAAHA!!I have one of those cozies. I still have a hat and a few fall tour shirts Westside... What about the Volksport meetings at Chad's shop every month and the swap meets. I miss those days. Low key, a bunch of cool people, no attitudes just a bunch of people getting together to BS about their VWs. Even the Volksport shows towards the end the were getting alittle too... meh. Maybe I'm just an old fuddie duddie

      well now days, chad has "eurowerks" meets at his shop friday nights (I believe)
      Chad is a good guy. He has a good business with customer service. He was not at the EW show this year.
