September 25, 2018 - Salute to Bruce VW Show and Shine
Fresno, California
Facebook Twitter

Tuesday, September 25th 5:30pm to 7:30pm at In N Out, it's the unofficial Salute to Bruce #1.

It is exactly a year ago that our local VW Guru passed away. We know this celebration gathering in his honor will really tick him off, that is why we are doing it! In N Out, across the street from his shop, was his fav go-to- restaurant. Buy a burger, fries and a shake and remember him in his overalls.

Please bring your VW if possible. No awards. Just tell your favorite Bruce story. Look for the oil drippers in the back of the In N Out Parking lot and please join in. Bruce would be proud. Well...maybe.

• ONE AGAIN IT TIME FOR FRIENDS, FUN, AND FOLIAGE IN NEW HARTFORD
Thirteen years ago, Mike O’Brien of Time Was Garage approached the New Hartford Volunteer
Fire & Rescue about facilitating a car show to raise money for the Fire Department. From that
encounter the Cartoberfest was born. It has become an annual event on the first Sunday in October
(or the first sunny Sunday in October). This is an amazing collaboration between the two
organizers of the event. It is run totally by volunteers both from the Fire Department and Time
Was Garage. Cartoberfest is the largest fundraiser for the Fire Department drawing 400 to 500
participants and over 500 spectators. 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Fire Department which helps
fund various equipment needs for the volunteer department.

The fundraising nature of Cartoberfest helps bring in cars from across Connecticut and beyond.
Since it is a non-judging event, it has become a relaxed showcase and social event for both the
participants and the spectators. You see anything from hot rods, custom cars, classic cars, Antique cars, ,
motorcycles, and trucks. Thanks to Time Was Garage the show draws from a huge community of car
enthusiasts.

Along with the entrance donations for participants and spectators, numerous local businesses
also support the event with monetary contributions and a dazzling array of raffle prizes. We are
so very fortunate to have wonderful local support.

Everyone is welcome. Please come out and join in the fun for this year’s event at
at Hurley Park along the Farmington River at 37 Greenwoods Road
(off Route 44) on Sunday, October 7, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

There will be Dash Plaques, Door Prizes including NASCAR tickets to Dover, Charlotte , and New Hampshire Races and theatre tickets for Bridge St, Warner Theater, Infinity among various gift certificates from local businesses and beyond.
Great Food such as clam chowder,
and Live Entertainment. This year the Whiskey Rebels will be on stage.
Lets not forget a rose for the Ladies

It’s a great event to make new friends so if you love your ride come and show it.
Cartoberfest has had Wedding proposals, Anniversary celebrations both accompanied with special cars for the occasion. Birthday cakes, all sorts of fun.

October 13, 2018 - Lowdown in Dubtown
Hazel Green, Alabama
Facebook Twitter

https://airkooledkustoms.com/charity-car-show/

Every year at the beginning of Fall, we host our annual Charity Car Show and Swap Meet. For nine years, we called it “Bugs ‘N Bräts”. A couple of years ago we made a change, mainly due to the fact that it has become impossible to find food vendors that will actually cook and sell Brautwurst. Now we have a new tradition, “LowDown in DubTown”! Same great show. Same great place. Same great time. It’s a chance for us to clean up the shop, clear off the front lot and invite our friends and fellow ‘dubbers over for some vintage steel, vittles on wheels, and the vrooom, vrooom pop of the charity engine blow. This year’s show will be held on October 13th here at the shop.

Here on the Darkside, we hold Liberty pretty dear to our hearts – and have tremendous gratitude for the men and women in our armed forces who sacrifice so much to ensure it. We also love our pups. So when we learned about this organization through our shop manager, Geoff and his service dog Keoki, we wanted to help.
After all, this furry guy always has our six, provides comic relief, and loves everyone… except maybe the UPS guy – he’s pretty sure that guy’s an ax murderer. (Keoki, of course – Geoff’s not that furry but otherwise…) Seeing the bond between man and beast, and recognizing how the support of a well-trained service animal can change lives, we’re proud to make TADSAW this year’s charity. Donations from registration and the engine blow 50/50 will help TADSAW train dogs to help warriors live full, productive lives after giving so much of themselves in service of our great nation.
Will you help us help them, too?
