      Seems like there were lots more Hondas here this year? What's with all the non VAG?

      I agree.. i thought this was a vag show..i see a lot of non-euro cars at other shows (h2o) id like just one show to be completely vag.

      Don't forget the miata killing the mountain. Gotta respect them wanting to be a part of this event. It has went from 150 cars 6 years ago to 2000+. People wanna see what that's about.

      it's the "look at me i'm cool, i'm an outcast" idea - which in the end is fail.

      we need to recruit enough VAG drivers to fill up the hotels so none are left for these guys.

      i don't go to honda events, for good reason

      someone said that rice was thrown at some of their cars hahahaha.

      apparently some of them were total f--sticks. including the guy with the matte black subaru with the Jack Daniels style logo on his hood at the Dorf.

      While not exactly a Honda fan, I'm not totally against the fact that some people at SoWo don't drive a VAG car to the event (such as girlfriends, guys who used to have a VW/Audi/etc, friends of VAG guys, or even people whose VAG car decided to not cooperate and so they had to drive their non-VAG car instead). However, trying to get as much attention as possible by revving the hell out of your Miata constantly? Um... dude buddy, you do realize you're at a VW/Audi show, surrounded by VW/Audi people, and you're driving a Mazda Miata, right?

      I don't have a problem with non-VAG cars being in town, but I don't think they should be in the show. It's well known this is a show for VAG, not Japanese or anything else. I don't dislike them, but this is our community, our show. My wife didn't understand last year why so many BMWs were there, but at least they were Euro.

      I didn't mind that they were there but there were 2 S2000's who were speeding into the show through the exit road while people were trying to leave. I mean come on, if you're going to be there at least respect the show rules especially if you're not in the show.

      How about that disgusting looking purple/pinkish civic with the broken rear fenders cause of the crazy amount of camber it had.

      I don't mind them being around, but I actually was disappointed when I saw them on the show field. The staff was turning away some German cars, but allowed the JDM stuff in. What upset me more was that vendor vehicles carrying their crap were turned away, while other cars were allowed to simply park with the rest of the VAG cars.

      There were nice Japanese cars rolling around during the weekend, but they should have been excluded from the show on Saturday unless they were dropping off vendor kit.

      This.

      I have a solution to this problem. When any of you start to wonder "why all these damn Hondas?', Please step back and take a dose of GetOverYourSelf OTC. It's a wonderful product that helps prevent cases of viral snobbery and the onset of hyper asshattery.

      Gasp*!*! car enthusiast using their own car to drive to a car show attended by car enthusiast of other car makes???!!! Just WOW, Thats got to be just some big dose of rediculous. What will I ever do?

      Would this also mean we should just park our VAGs in a Mustang car show (I know, bad reference)? If the other cars keep parking in the show, I really don't care, but when people like my wife (she has 0 interest in cars) noticed and says things like "I thought this was a VW/Audi show, why are so many Hondas etc. here?" that says a lot. Come to the show, but come to see what the VAG scene is all about, not because you have the urge to show your car at the show.

      It isn't about being a snob, at least for me, and I know the show's free, so I'm not really bothered, but I can go anywhere and see JDM, Fords, Chevys, and so forth; I just think it's cool to be able to go to a show for only VWs and Audis. In a lot of ways our scene is way different, but I think a lot of this has changed with the show growing each year as well.

      Yes it's different in the sense that we are more welcoming of other cars and people can hang out with VAG enthusiasts without worrying about having their cars trashed as would be the case if we went to a Honda show or something. That's one of the things that I've always liked about VAG owners and think it's one of the reasons why there is so much enthusiasm and participation at our events with less issues than at a JDM or domestic show

      Your point brings me to another question... why are the other shows, JDM stuff in particular so bad about stealing or damaging property? I know, off topic so don't answer if you don't want. I've never been to another specific show, other than classics back in the day. Those guys never had the same rift raft and shenanigans.

    25. 05-24-2012 10:41 AM #25
      I drove my Evo down, and didn't mind parking outside. I knew the event was for VWs/Audis, I didnt come to show off my car but rather to enjoy the cars that I knew were going to be present. I honestly dont even go to JDM/Honda meets just because of issues mentioned already in this thread. Being a Non-Vag attendee, I was also kinda confused on the jdm/non-vag cars in the show while there was plenty of vw's that couldn't get in.

      I've owned VW's since the day I moved to this country, and its kinda funny that people are bashing other cars for attending the event as if they're 10 years old. We're all car enthusiasts at the end of the day.
