      Rally up the Midwest troops!


      MOTORSTADT 9
      June 9th 2012
      Austrian Society Of Detroit

      Brought to you by:
      Michigan Volkswagen Enthusiasts
      michiganvw.org

      Michigan's first and largest mixed Water and Air Cooled VW and Audi Event.

      Those of you who have been know what to expect. Those of you who haven't been in a couple years might have an idea.
      This is the third year in the new location. We have moved the show from the former VW/Audi ofAmerica to the Austrian Society Park. This is a private, Bavarian styled location much better suited for a German car show.


      And the photos from the same Photographer
      http://www.stevenphamphoto.com/blog/.../motorstadt-8/

      We have added a Non VW/Audi class this year after seeing some pretty nice cars attending the show, but not participating. Although it is mainly a VW show, we have love for anything nice.

      Best way to get updates is to like the Facebook page found here:
      http://www.facebook.com/pages/Motors...98982700139260

      For complete info visit motorstadt.michiganvw.org

      Here are some pics from the last couple years just to illustrate the variety we are used to

      Yeah I saw that. can't avoid everything. We have been trying to miss eurowerks for years and they finally moved it far enough away where I can make it.

      I know. There really are only so many weekends in the summer. eurowerks moved their date so that it wouldn't compete with euroHANGAR, which was an awesome thing for Kris to do. He and the eurowerks crew are going to be rallying out from Minneapolis to Holland for the show. I was really hoping Motorstadt was on a weekend I could make it because I'd really like to put together an event to bring a bunch of the WI and IL folks out to it. Maybe next year.

      Next year will be the 10th Motorstadt and we have big plans for that one. It's always the second Saturday in June.

      Yes, just do it responsibly.

      Pre-registration ends Friday!

      If you don't want to pay now, or can't be 100% you are going to make it, please register using the Pay at the Show option. This way, we at least have your information if you do make it.

      Hopefully we can catch up next year before we pick dates to make sure we don't both land on the same day. It sucks having people pick either Scooter's GTG or Motorstadt. Next year hopefully we can switch it up to allow people to go to both shows on different weekends.

      Really bummed out that I can't make it, but I'll be there in spirit. Make sure to swing by the OEM Squared booth and say hi to Scott and check out some of the OEM and LBR schwag on display.

      Hoping to see a lot of the MI folks later this month at eurohangar though.

      I brought a non-VW buddy. We showed up kinda late but still had time to see everything. On our way out, he said next year we're gonna do it right and be there all day with our chairs and beers. I think he had a good time
