Road Trip!
AVC members Leon and Mary Prause made the trek to Roswell NM for the Roswell 2K New Beetle gathering in June.  See pictures here.  Looks like it was a fantastic time.

Proudly, it was a big success!  We received a third place ribbon for our participation as a car club.  A total of 10 VW's participated in this event, the following proudly displayed their pride and joy:   Charlie Holmes, Greg and Bala Silkenson, Orville Monroe, David Monroe, Leon and Mary Prause, Ed Harshburger, Caleb Zammit, and Matt (the "Flag") Steen.  See pictures from the parade HERE!


The AVC is open to all types of VW enthusiasts, whether you currently have a Volkswagen or not.  Whether you are into VW racing, restoring, customizing, showing, or just dreaming of your next VW, there will be something of interest to you in the AVC.  We have a very diverse group of people all drawn together by their love of Volkswagens.
