What a great idea! Good stuff, Craig.
We should do something like that down here.
The QLD VW MK1 Driver’s Group is open to owners of Mk1 Golfs, Scirrocos, B1 Passats and G60 Corrados. The Group has been formed to bring together enthusiasts of the early watercooled VWs, through attendance at select VW events, one or two special Group activities, and the odd social cruise.
The Group will kick off with its first official gathering at the Gold Coast VeeDub Club’s annual show’n’shine at Pimpama on Sunday May 6th. VWMA will pay the show entry fee for each eligible car, hand out a VW goodies bag, the latest copy of VWMA and stickers. Cars will be parked together in a designated area, and VWMA will also award a separate trophy to the car chosen by the group as the favourite for the day.
Participants for the Gold Coast show must register their interest prior to the day by emailing Craig Hughes at VWMA
- firstname.lastname@example.org - with their full name, contact mobile number and model of VW. A list will then will be waiting at the gate to direct show entrants to where the group will be parked. It is requested that cars remain at the show until at least after the VWMA presentation.
Following this show in May, a workshop clinic at Browns Plain Mechanical will happen in June (date to be advised at the Gold Coast show), where Group members are given the opportunity to have their VW put on the hoist for a free inspection, check out some of the new projects currently happening and enjoy a free BBQ.
Further down the track is the possibility of a trip to the Volkswagen Valla Spectacular in August, the VWDCQ show’n’shine at Manly in September and of course VW Warwick in October.
So dust off the MK1 and see you at Pimpama!
sounds good, i have a zillion things going ATM so when ive confirmed dates il apply
Radiators are over rated
I'll say Hell Yes , BUT I have only just acquired a project after being without a MK1 for about 10 years. So it will be mostly to meet and greet for the time being.
Hope to see some/all of you at the Gold coast meet.
Old Enough to Know Better.
great idea guys, i'm sure the rest of the qld vw guys would like to see more mk1's at our general events too!... generally we get, er... one or none...
I'm so in for this put in my email today with my details. Just put on side drafts on the car today. Can't wait for pimpama!
I am 100% in for this, car should be running by next Wednesday (3rd) so I'm keen to come down for sure! The car ain't pretty at the moment so there won't be much to show or shine but I'm still excited about coming down. Will send the email with my details now.
