Hello VW Fans.

I visited the El Prado VW Show in Chino California 2017.

After I was at The Classic in Costa Mesa in 2016 I knew I had to come back to visit El Prado Show & Shine.

The Show is presented by Vintage Transporter Owners (VTO) & Just Cruzin South California VW Club and the location was at Prado Regional Park, 16700 S. Euclid Ave., Chino, CA 91708, USA.

After the OCTO VW Transporter Show was finished on Saturday the 10th June I drove 40 Miles from Long Beach to the Prado Regional Park. I arrived Saturday at about 15:00 and the first impression was just amazing. I quickly had a good feeling and was happy that I made it to here.

The Prado Park is near Los Angeles and it is a green meadow paradise with lots of trees located in the Chino Valley basin. There is lots of space for a VW meeting with camping, cold drinks and fun. After I parked my car I checked the area, visited friends and the sunset was great.

Sunday was Showtime: The Americans start early in the morning to get the VWs in line. The first picture below was taken at 5:45 a.m. while it was still a bit dark. It was cloudy in the morning and later in the day sunny.

1338 air-cooled VWs were counted and it was amazing to see that many VW 181 and VW Buggys in one place. Clubs like The Original German Folks Klub (GFK) have put their cars beautifully in series.

I had good times at El Prado and will come back in the future. The El Prado Show in Chino is very different compared to The Classic in Costa Mesa. I like both and would recommend to go to both if you have the time.

Below 151 great pictures of the El Prado VW Show 2017 in order as taken on June 10 and 11.
