      Haven't read any of the thread yet, but I don't think I want to because I know my head will probably explode from how narrow minded a lot of you can be. But answer me this-- why does it matter if there are non VAG cars there? What kind of boring life do you live where a few cars out of the ordinary would spoil your time?

      I'd also be willing to bet that 99.9% of the hondas and other cars there are more worth looking at than the VAG "purists" who are complaining...

      Not referring to the weekend, but the day of the show: It is a VW show; specifically for those makes associated with VW. VW sponsors the event.

      99% of the Hondas are stanced on the same BBS or Rotiform wheels, with the same illest stickers on their windows. Coincidentally, so are most of the newer VW's. What are the JDM folk doing differently these days?

      Check the sig. It's all there for your viewing. I did not say that what I have been doing is ground breaking, nor do I expect everyone to do anything ground-breaking. All I expect is that other JDM and Euro owners respect the rules and guidelines set for a show by the organizers, rather than saying "F you, I'm parking g my **** wherever the hell I want." It's called mutual respect. I will not park my pos Jetta at a Mercedes of JDM-only show field out of courtesy. It's not that difficult to understand that and return the same courtesy.

      I saw one japanese car inside the show field and the owner was running a booth. You worry to much about **** that doesn't matter. Go make some friends out there or something and maybe you won't worry about stupid **** like this.

      I dont know you (kinda), but I like you.

      People care too much about what other people do. Should non-euro cars park in the show, probably not but dont be angry that we go to these shows. Keep in mind just because we dont drive or own a VW/Audi/wtf ever euro doesnt mean we want to be associated with the typical MADJDMTYTEYO kids. Hell there was plenty of room at the back of the venue to hold the handful of non-euro cars. Maybe I just dont understand why anyone would care so much about something so petty.... and no, thats not an invitation to explain. Maybe mature a bit and be glad that there is even an event such as this put on in the first place.

      I read some of the stuff on the first page, and don't care to read the rest because of how stupid people are. what needs to be said has already been said. I am sick of reading about people crying because they lost, or crying about petty **** like this. who goes to shows for the cars? yea, it is nice to walk around and see cars you don't see all the time, but it is even better to see people that you don't really get to see. hang out with friends that you don't hang out with every week. but, based on the mentality of some of the people in here, I think it is safe to assume that those who are bitching don't have friends.

      Were you seriously watching people do this? Because we tryed to pull in the show with a vw bus and they had the road completely blocked off. We and the owner did not give 2 ****s, we literally said we got there too late. Its the same at every big show, you show up too late and the premium parking spots are gone.

      LMAO I guaran-damn-tee you that no one in their right mind was saying and or doing that. You have to remember that alot of the people that came to the show had no idea that there were designated sections for parking. I knew where to park because I frequent this forum and saw the map that the organizers posted, but im willing to bet alot of people didnt even see it. I think you just have it out for other car makes for whatever reason, but the next time why dont you lend a hand to the staff and point them in the right direction instead of coming on here acting like all import people are from the fast and the furious. I used to be judgmental too and thought all VW owners were douche bags, until I started to come to sowo and actually met a few.

      at least someone understands that concept. I heard some guy yelling and cussing at the people at the gate because it was 11:30 and the lot was full, so they wouldn't let him in.

      ^^^This. If you believe you are so worried about others 'ruining' your good time at a show for VW owners and car enthusiasts, do us a favor, and don't go.

      blah blah blah all i hear is "im gay and i dont like hondas even though i am repping brotireps on my mkv"

      You guys need to get a life. If you are so worried about hondas and other types of vehicles coming to a "vw" show, then you need to keep your ass at home. It's not that big of a deal. Who cares. I'm willing to bet that at some point or even currently, the "honda" owners own/owned a volkswagen.

      Show me where I posted anything in this thread that compared anyone to F&F, or said that I was not a fan of (or have not owned) other makes. Or show me where I said that I did not want to see any other cars in Helen that weekend. Please feel free to post the quote below.

      It was a generalization to your "F you ill park where i want to" remark. I guess your going get all literal now.

      If you took the time to read word for word, you would "literally" understand what I wrote, rather than needing to generalize.

      I love all cars. But sometimes it is nice to have a 1 day event showcasing a specific type.

      seems to me that people that have been in the scene awhile are the ones that are welcoming to all makes.(**** you wont find a nicer mk4 than swoops 'car and he LOVED my car.
      My car is 100% euro inspired, and real euro enthusiasts appreciate it.

      When people stop coming to car shows for cars, and start coming to see friends they only get to see once or twice a year, all the little bull**** doesnt matter anymore.
      I stopped reading at this post. I 100% agree and could not have said it better. If anything, seeing non euro cars that are euro inspired should make you people smile. 5 years ago JDM meant complete rice...now thanks to us they are starting to clean up their act. (kiddierose and other previous/current VAG owners excluded).

      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.
      You are an idiot and why would you think it was funny that people threw rice at cars

      I'm sure you probably call yourself a "dubber" and drive an "emkay" too
      Let's face it, if you're a grown-ass man driving a Hyundai or Kia to work, your life plan didn't work out as expected

      We brought the S2000 down (red ap1 on cream work equips) because we knew it would make the 14.5 hour drove down no problem. Our mk2 & mk3 though, we weren't so sure. If you're a car enthusiast and have an appreciation for European cars (which I would hope since you're attending a euro show) then what's the big deal?

      I don't hate Hondas or any brand of car for that matter as long as it's not a loud ass ricer with a cocky douche bag driver

      I'm glad I read through all of this, because some **** got cleared up toward to the end there. The way I see it, and this is through fresh eyes since I've never been to SoWo... If it's a VAG show, then only VAG cars should be on the show field, plain and simple. Now, if there are JDM and domestic guys coming down to check out the show, then that should be flattering more than anything. Trust me, I've been doing GM/j-body shows for almost a decade, and the only people who were attending the shows were the people showing. We'd have loved to see the euro or JDM guys come over and walk through our lot, check out the cars and hang out. But if I'm coming to SoWo, I'm coming to see Dubs and Audis, not everything else. If I wanna see Hondas, Evos, etc., I'll go to ISO, or HIN. Just my couple of pennies, of course.

      I will say this, however. No one should be turned away due to space constraints if there are outside makes on the field. I know most people drive a long way to get there, and it'd be ****ed up to be told no while looking at some JDM car sitting there. If it's because you were late... well, that does suck, but **** happens I guess.

      And finally, under NO circumstance should anyone be rude or make ****ty comments to someone about their car, or even worse, throw stuff at it. It all goes back to the stereotypical douchebags you guys mentioned earlier.

      Meh, I'll see you guys next year regardless.
