Hi all. Traveling from Ireland to Florida and Orlando in July/August for summer holidays and I was keen to see some aircooled Vws and anything car related. Either club meets or shows, can anyone recommend something to see or somewhere to go while Im there?

Cheers
Mike

Not necessarily VW, but sometimes there are some... Visit "Old Town" on Saturday afternoon/ night they have a car show and plenty of other things to see. Its free to walk around, you pay to eat or ride any of the rides.
