These are some of the larger events held this year in Colorado. I put a link to each event so you can get more information.
Painter’s Grinding will be holding their second Dub Roast at their shop April 24, 2010. Check out local cool cars, have a few FREE hot dogs, and take your chance at winning a 1600cc rebuilt longblock engine in the raffle.
Vw’s on the Green will be held at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds May 16th, 2010. This is a fun show with a lot of VWs. This year the event is being held at the fairgrounds and will display many VW, food, and other vendors – good family fun.
The Nu Vintage Bugin at Bandimere will be in August 1st, 2010. This is probably Colorado’s largest VW event. It features of course a car show, products, a large swap meet, drag racing, blowing up an engine, and a sharpie tattoo contest.
Dubs along the Rockies will be August 22, 2010 at Pike Peak International Raceway. Along with seeing tons of VWs you can also watch Autocross racing and slow drags.
We will be at these events as spectators and with our VWs.
Believe it or not there was a Bug show here in Pueblo way back in 1988. It was a lot of fun. The show was held at the drag strip in Pueblo Motorsports Park. I will try and dig up photos from the event – they not digital.
I hope one day to have another show in Pueblo.
Spring is defiantly in the air. There has been a lot of interest in getting cars on the road for summer. Today I worked on getting two VW Beetles ready for new engines.
