This is supposed to be an air-cooled-specific Beetle event, but many New Beetles have been showing up for years, and I would suspect now, even some 2012s will be there. Is anyone here planning on going?
The more water-cooled Beetles that show up, the more likely MA Motorworks will give in and refer to this as an all-Beetle event. They used to even carry aftermarket parts for NBs but stopped around 2002 or 2003. For those who may not know, their other specialty is Corvettes, and they have an all-Vette show at a different time.
Usually, about 1200-1300 Beetles show up. In fact, this is the biggest Beetle show in the Midwest. Of those 1200-1300 Bugs in attendance, I would guess maybe 100 water-cooled Beetles come there each year as well.
