I like cars and cars in general I have 66 beetle that I wanted to bring but don't want to drive it 13 hours so I decided to take my S13 Silvia which didn't make it either I wish it did tho because everyone would have been mad it's not a vw/Audi
I spooned eastcoaststeeze in dannybarones bed
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.
at least I didn't bring the 20th with all its euro spec bits.. gotta wait til everyone else's 20th is completely unrecognizable and/or crashed for people to give a damn about mine
Stupid BMWs who do they think they are?
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.
Euros should love one another no matter what make.
JDMS are cool when done right.
CANT WE CALL GET ALONG AND DRINK

It's a matter of this:

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
Showing up is fine, the more the merrier. But expecting to be on the show field is a little much.
Personally I didnt mind seeing them come to Helen. True car enthusiasts will go where all the good shows are. It just so happens that VAG shows DO IT RIGHT! I enjoyed seeing all of the cars that weekend, even the JDM ones.
But seeing them take spots up on the show grounds where other VAG rides cant get in cause it was full was slightly disappointing.
I agree that the main showgrounds should only include VAG cars, but vendors can bring whatever they'd like to display in their booths. They're the ones helping to make the show happen!
This whole debate is kind of pointless... The whole weekend was amazing, regardless of what make of vehicle showed up. SOWO creates an instant community of car enthusiasts that's hard to find anywhere else.
Let's all just be happy that this spectacular show has such a welcoming home and a dedicated group of individuals that want to make it happen every year.
Can't you just understand that many of these folks actually would enjoy a show filled with their own cars and without the same "outcasts" in attendance? There are plenty of shows that embrace diversity. Don't use the "my car scene sucks, so I attend VW shows" as an excuse.
Lol you're a clown. I just said i agree that it should have ONLY been vag cars in the main lot. The only people to blame is the staff. Would I have a complaint for them? Absolutely not, this show is my favorite and probably always will be. Like i stated earlier this is the 4th year I've been to sowo, I've never shown or registered my car for the event. I respect that it's a vag show and don't bother trying to show bc i know how passionate you people are about keeping it an all vag show. But there is a huge double standard bc there are a million bmw's that show up and they are perfectly fine. So maybe you should focus on bitching about the bmw's that stole all these spots.
And I'm not going bc your scene is "cooler," I'm going to look at the cars.
I showed up at 11am on Saturday, heard they weren't letting cars on the showgrounds (I had a feeling this would be the case), and parked my car on the other side of the river, NBD. I wasn't butthurt that I couldn't park on the showgrounds and neither were any of the people I parked with on the other side in our VWs.
To be honest, it seems like you're the only one that continues to beat this topic to death. Do the other cars offend you that much? There wasn't a shortage of space in the showfield bc non-VAG cars were parked in there. The organizers chose not to allow more cars in after a certain time, that's all.
So if I voice my opinion on exclusivity, it's beating a topic to death. If you voice your opinion that conflicts with mine, it's not.
I'm sorry. I will know my place next time.
Anyone took pics of that awesome stanced purple civic?
I Used to own a MKIV R32, and I Still love the VW scene. Is it really that big of a deal that I brought my non VW car to this event? The VW Scene used to be the most friendly of any group i'd ever seen, it seems to me that times are changing.
I don't always use race gas, but when I do, I use my EIP race file.
EIP race file... Stay thirsty my friends
