Hello VW Fans.

I visited “The Classic” VW Show on Sunday the 12th June 2016 in Costa Mesa California.

The Bugorama organized “The Classic” and it is sponsored by Pierside Parts & EIS Present.

The VW Show was at the OC Fair & Event Center, 88 Fair Dr, Costa Mesa, CA 92626, USA where I arrived at 6:00 a.m.. They opened the entrance gate at about 6:15 a.m. for the air-cooled VWs and the entrance was 15 USD.

The DKP VW Club had many cool Cal-Look VWs nicely displayed. Original vintage air-cooled VWs are rare at the “The Classic”, because most are lowered.

The Classic VW Show is advertised at the Bugorama website as “the World’s Largest VW Car Show”. Well, I have been to many VW Shows around the world and “The Classic in California” has average size.

If you are in California for the “The Classic Weekend”, you can see a lot: I went on Friday to the DKP Pre-Classic Cruise Night, on Saturday to the OCTO Bus Show and Koch’s Antique & Collectible’s Faire and on Sunday to The Classic. There are also open houses with BBQ to keep you busy for the weekend. On Sunday is also a second VW Show called “El Prado Show & Shine” in Chino California. On my next trip, I will check that out.

Below 95 pics of The Classic VW Show 2016 in Costa Mesa California.
