      just want to take this time to thank everyone that was so cool this weekend. My S got so much love from non closed minded people I have had multiple vw's before this car, and still daily drive a gti. I dont view myself as an outcast, because i still have so many friends in the vw scene that still view me the same way. Thats one of the reasons why i keep coming to these shows.
      pic from the cabin


      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.

      there is a part of the JDM crowd that is bad. really bad. But id like to think (and speak for myself) when i say the JDM kids that come to these shows are not the same.
      BUT we have the same kids in the vw crowd. 2 people got their wheels stolen at h2o, last year at sowo i believe someone got their rear th lines stolen, everyshow someone is missing stubby antennas, 1 year at h2o someone stole a freaking r32 front bumper. So VW kids are not the exception. There are ****ty enthusiasts in every scene

      I love the variety and different styles. I don't even look at half the VAG at SoWo, as they're just stockish cars or have weak drops and crap wheels. Most of the imports I saw this weekend had some cool elements or were pretty bad ass, so it's nice having them around.

      If you're upset that imports stole attention or a parking spot from your VW; build a better Volkswagen or wake up earlier.

      Yeah, the TH Lines theft was last year. I have never had the compulsion to steal, especially from someone else's car. It may be nice, but it doesn't mean they're loaded. Some of us have to work and save for what we have (and even sneak some mods past wives) It's everywhere, it just sucks, though.

      Like I mentioned earlier, I'm not bashing the parking of the other cars, but for noobs like my wife and I were to SoWo a couple years ago, I was expecting a car show tailored to only VW/Audi. I don't mind seeing the tastefully done other cars, but it would make it easier if the cars were grouped by sections. I like the open community, and I get where everyone's coming from, but I really don't give a crap about how much work someone's done to a Civic. S2000s are okay because it was designed with the enthusiast in mind (people that like to drive, not just people that think the cars are neat or cool).

      Agree 100%. I could not for the life of me get my crew going that morning. We were up by 8 cleaning up a bit, and tried to get them to the show before 9, but they weren't up until almost 9. They get there like 20 minutes later, but got a spot near the APR tent and we were near the exit. Maybe earlier isn't always the answer I guess

      You are obviously missing the point. The show field had non VW's and Audi's throughout. It is supposed to be exclusively a VAG show. Even the organizers stated that. There were many VW's that should have been in the field that weren't able to because of those spots being taken by other makes.

      Sneaking your car into a manufacturer specific show is similar to photo-bombing.

      It's fine to bring whatever car you have down for the weekend, but why are people so bent on parking their JDM cars next to the VW's, even when the event organizers try to prevent it?

      I was the one who drove the bagged blue Subaru... Are some of you saying I'm not allowed to attend a VAG show? I love European cars and the scene and that is why I go. I don't park my car in the show nor do I intend to. I park on the sidelines and walk around admiring peoples work. Most "JDM" shows suck ass and are full of ricers and people that don't appreciate stance. The euro scene doesn't have that as much and that is why I like it. So do some of you think that I should not go to any VAG events now that I sold my mk3?

      No. You are welcome to attend. But not display your car on a show field that is exclusive to certain brands. How is this hard to understand?

      I hear that. The people that parked on the show field with Japanese and domestic cars had no business being there unless they were at a booth.

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.
      dude, driving with you was a freaking blast... especially the last 30+ miles down the hill!

      Ok this is my 4th year coming to sowo and the reason I came to the show is to see the VAG cars. I drove the white Si on futuras, literally pulled in on friday and parked my car at the hotel all night. Just for the 2 seconds I drove through there were like 5 people who yelled **** at me simply because i was in a honda. I understand completely that we shouldnt even be allowed to park in the show. Which is why i parked across from the tubing place just like they said we had to. I wasnt going to show anything, if anything i knew i would get more hate then love at a show like this so why even bother. But just becuase my only car is a honda that means im not allowed to come? I mean really? Some people need to grow up and the organizers need to do a better job at letting ONLY vag cars in the show because i saw numerous subarus in the main lot.




      And there are exceptions to every rule, I would NEVER hate on a vw for coming to import alliance. I personally look forward to sowo more than any other meet that I attend simply because you VW guys take pride in having clean ass cars, well most of you do. And its nice seeing something different for a change. I just wish some of you werent so closed minded about HONDA's like were all ricers or something. Were all car guys/gals and we meet alot of cool people every year so why not keep the scene alive vs bashing it simply because of the make of cars we decide to drive.

      I go because I enjoy the VAG scene, although I sold my B7 about a year ago....and yea, pulled into the booth and kept hearing how this was no place for an E46. But no harm was done, I had a blast.

      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.
      Yes those JDM guys were just there to be differant I am sure they actually hate cars. It does suck that some people are f--sticks. At least the VAG people who were so inconvenianced by those SoWo ruining JDM guys were courteous enough to pelt them with rice when they drove by and yell sh!t at them, unless it was some sort of bridal ceremony type thing and now you're all married.

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.
      Cars are cars are cars....its a car show. Look at cars make friends enjoy. Tage your VW to a Mustang show.

      Good thing nothing was getting stolen, no cars were vandalized, no banners were cut down and no fights were breaking out at SoWo, I mean the VAG crowd is so chiil and respectful. Except for that rice throwing thing.

      Appparently hardest for the shows organizers. It is very gracious of you to ALLOW them to attend but in no way participate. You should organize an event just like SoWo but with Fasccist like security where nobody you dont approve of gets in.


      I show up at SoWo and just think HOLY FACK LOOK AT ALL THE COOL A$$ CARS! I hope I am not alone.

      As a BMW enthusiast (i had the maroon E36 on white wheels) and especially a European car enthusiast i bring my car to any euro event.
      I love Euro period.
      I strongly hate JDM cars but i LOVE ones that are done correctly and tastefully.

      I love the VAG scene. You guys know how to have a good time and pick AWESOME locations for your events.
      BMW events are boring and mostly held in large parking lots........

      I come to H20 and Sowo (first time this year and had a blast) and other VAG events because i have allot of VAG friends and always have a part of me that wants a Volkswagen.

      TLDR:
      Euros should love one another no matter what make.
      JDMS are cool when done right.

      Yeah, that was me in the miata track car in the mountains. I have been coming to the mountains for 7 years now at least twice a month and can say that is the most packed I have ever seen it with car people which was pretty dang cool.

      Correct, I do not drive a VW, but many of my friends do or have and I came to support them and support the SoWo event. I am a car guy at heart and weather it is a VW meet, import meet, or track car event, I will be there. I like the VW scene and like the people in it. Tons of passion has been put into most of those cars and I respect that a lot. I kept my car parked away from everyone to not get in the way of everyones meet. I would like to thank those friendly people for being respectful of me and those who did not come in VW's. I will for sure be back next year

      You are not alone. It's a shame to see and hear that VW people are trying so hard to make the imports and other euros feel unwelcome.

      Showing up is fine, the more the merrier. But expecting to be on the show field is a little much.
