Do you miss Vw shows? Do you miss camping with your friends and family? Do you miss cruises on the backroads of Texas? Well, let’s fix that problem and let’s put a spin on it!!
Come out and join us at 7D Ranch in Navasota, Tx for a fun VW filled weekend!
This will be a special kind of event we haven’t had here in Texas before. We will still have a car show, swap meet, and cruise, but we are adding something special for those off road guys!
We will be laying out an off-road course for all you dune buggies, bajas, and everyone else who wants to have some fun in their Vw!

This event will be held on a few hundred acres on the 7D Ranch, situated nicely on the outskirts of Navasota, Tx. Tons and tons of room for primitive camping!

There will also be limited RV hookups and a handful of cabins to rent for the weekend.

We are early in the planning stages, but this page will be updated regularly as we gather more info. Please feel free to ask any questions you have.

April 02, 2022 - Herbie's 53rd Anniversary Celebration Extravaganza
Daytona Beach, Florida
Facebook Twitter

One Daytona/Daytona International Speedway
April 2-3, 2022
All VW’s are welcomed and encouraged to attend

We are at it once again. For those who did not have a chance to participate in Herbie The Love Bug’s 50 Year Anniversary which included the Lakeland VW Classic pictured above, we are doing it again in April of 2022, celebrating 53 Years since the release of the very first movie.

This time around, there are going to be even more Herbies than ever from around the US and Canada plus numerous fans from around the world. But we wanted to make it special for everyone as well so we decided to open up the last two days of the event to ALL VW’s.

Detailed planning is just now starting due to the COVID-19 Virus, but we have locked in April 3rd with the speedway which will give us access to the infield for a real celebration including a judged show and the ability to run laps and have pictures taken in front of the world famous Start/Finish line.

This is simply the first notice of it’s kind so that everyone can put it on their calendars and start saving a few dollars so that you can participate as well. This will be a non-profit event and we have already coordinated with other shows in the area such as No-Dough which is also normally held in April to minimize conflicts.

The details of the event will be handled by the Executive Board, but we will need help with the execution of this event. If your club would like to participate, please contact Gail Love at [email protected].

For current updates, please visit

You will not want to miss this event!.
