    “Be resolved get involved”

  • Michele

    We can’t wait for the Show, we have His and Hers 21 window Buses. One is a 64 and the other is a 67. We will be there. YaHoo

    • Daniel Kiley

      Michele, I have a 71 campmobile and need the 2 front doors, drivers and passengers, do you know where I might find them.?

      • Michele

        Have you tried Sumba or Glod Mine in Whittier? Also in June when they have the Classic or Sat. show just for buses.

      • Diane Maikui

        @Michele: Actually it’s Samba; and the Gold Mine in Whittier is not all that it is cracked up to be. I have a 61 deluxe bus and Gold Mine has never been able to help me; Wolfsburg is the best for parts; and the Pomona swap meet sometimes has larger items. When is the bus show in June. Thanks!

  • Steve Eevekiller

    Looking forward to this! My 1st car was a 1960 x-porter [what a sh!theap it was, but I miss it terribly… go figure!] Been thinking a lot lately of revisiting that format, now that I have the money to: #1 – buy one that hasn’t already been trashed, #2 – keep it in good nick, #3 – maybe make some mods [like doing a type IV -> type I conversion for more power & reliability.]
    C U there!

  • Yuri

    I cant wait, I`ll be there with my vw club!!!!

  • tony valtier

  • stormy

    I can’t wait! But how much is parking if you don’t have a VW?

    • Adam Bookbinder

      While most parking is fee, the Orange County Market Place does offer “Preferred Parking” near an entrance for a nominal fee.

  • Michele

    I just read you have to stay until 4pm is this true? I don’t think I can last that long even on a good day.

    • Adam Bookbinder

      Michele, if you have a car in the classic car show, yes you have to stay until the end of the event.

  • Diane Maikui

    Is this a rain or shine event? Forecast if for rain on Sunday, bummer!!!!!! Do you have a rain out day in case of heavy rain?

    • Adam Bookbinder

      Hey Diane, this event is rain or shine! Bring your umbrella just in case! We’ll see you Sunday!

      • Diane Maikui

        Thanks Adam I need another tie die t-shirt, the other one finally wore out. See you there!!!!

  • Rob Garretson

    Can we register and pay at the show or is it online in advance only?

    • Adam Bookbinder

  • Maria Kohanek-Ledesma

    My husband and I had such a great time! We got there early, said Hello to most of the Radio Celebs. It was great! G.B. & L.S. were so kind and caring of all their fans. It was great seeing the Britains Finest. All the cars looked great! It started to rain hard about 12:30 and we were able to see a great deal of the days activities. Thanks to all the Celebs of Radio who are so great not only on Radio but wonderful to their fans as well. We thank all of you for such a special day. Maria L.
