Here's some more quick info:
I don’t have a VW or an Audi, can I still show my car? If it’s a water-cooled european car then you are good to go!! We even have “non-V.A.G.” categories! (BMW, Volvo, Saab, Mini, etc.)
What if I don’t want to register? That’s fine, just show up and park along the street. We’re hoping to have the core of registered cars in the main driveway. It’s more like a GTG than a show, so if you’ve got a cool car, register for the awesome swag and so you can park with everyone. We saw a lot of cars parked along the street last year that should have been along side the rest of us. Don't be shy!
Where do we park? In order to make room for the “show” cars we’re asking attendees to park along the shoulder of Old Bastrop Hwy. There’s an empty lot a couple hundred feet to the south of us, no one’s been bothered parking there, but you do it at your own risk.
Can we bring alcohol? No. To be safe, and support local business, we'll be using the bar next to us, The Texas Mist. They will be having drink specials for the show. Since VeeDub is not allowed to sell alcohol and it is illegal for patrons to have alcohol in the parking lot of the bar, we'll keep all the beverages in the bar. Thanks for understanding!
Can we grill? There's probably not going to be too much room for you to grill. Plus we have a couple awesome food trailers attending the show and serving up deliciousness!
I’ve never been to VeeDub, can we check out the yard? During the show VeeDub will be closed for the day. It will be open it’s normal hours from 9am – 2pm, so come a little early if you want to walk the yard. You’ll need at least 45 minutes to walk out there, look around and walk back, so don’t expect to come at 1:45 and take a quick peek. It’s a decent sized piece of land.
What classes will be judged at this show? So the official classes so far are: Best In Show, Best Paint, Best Wheels, Best Stance, and Best Non-V.A.G. The 2nd tier awards are: Best MK1-3, BestMK4-6, Best Audi, Best BMW, Best Volvo, Furthest Driven, and Fan Favorite
