iM Event Coverage: Das Volks 2011

Another great weekend filled with lots of car related stuff. As you saw yesterday the Rides ‘N Rods event went down the same day as the Das Volks 2011 show so this was our second destination for the day.

Having gone out to this for the first time since owning a VW, I was in shock to see how awesome the show was. The location, Stanley Park, was something out of a magazine and the quality of cars was something you had to see to believe.

This is one show I definitely won’t miss next year and I hope the VW community keeps raising the bar every year!

I would also like to add a video in that I found a few days after the show and I thought it related really well to the story of a VW Bus that was at Das Volks. The story behind it was awe inspiring as the owner originally bought it from the factory and had owned it since. After several trips across Europe he moved to Canada and brought it with him, then drove it from West to East 7 times! To this day the Bus is still in great condition and the owner keeps on enjoying it.
Unfortunately when talking with the owner of this particular Bus I completely forgot to snap some pics but hopefully I can find some and get them up.
