After visiting events in Germany like Bad Camberg and Hessisch Oldendorf, we wanted to bring an old German atmosphere together with strictly Vintage Volkswagens. The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, California is a true "old school" German Cultural Club, as well as the perfect host for an event like this. The So Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to 1961 and earlier "small taillight" Beetles and Busses, 1959 and earlier "low light" Karmann Ghias, Military Vehicles and early coachbuilts. Our first event held in September 2007 turned out to be a big success, and the plan is to hold it every other year opposite the Solvang Vintage Meet put on by the Golden Gate Chapter of the VVWCA. So if you have an old VW collecting dust in the garage and you want to show it off, or if you're just looking for an excuse to have an authentic German Bratwurst and beer... the So Cal Vintage Treffen is just the place for you.

A swap spot at the Treffen is $40 per vehicle and includes driver admission. Trailer = 2nd vehicle
If you are a business or shop selling new or used parts, you will need to get a Vendor space.

Vendor Spaces are for Companies selling "new or  used" merchandise. Each space is $150, aprox 20’x20’ and will include a pass good for one (1) vehicle and two (2) spectators.. Any additional tickets can be purchased at the front gate for $10 each. All vendors will be let in between 5:30am and 6:30am to be given time to set-up their Display. No vendors in after 6:30am.

The Phoenix Club is very limited on space, so we will have limited room for both Vendors and Swappers.


 Car Show Info 

Eligible vehicles for the Treffen include:

  • 1961 and earlier Beetles and Buses

  • 1959 and earlier Karmann Ghias

  • 1961 and earlier Coachbuilts

  • 1961 and earlier Military Vehicles 

  • Porsche 356 A and pre-A Vehicles

The So-Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to the first 200 cars registered. This event in particular is specifically for 1961 and earlier "Small Taillight"  Beetles and Buses, 1959 and earlier "low light" Karmann Ghias, WWII Military, early VW Coachbuilts and Porsche 356 A and pre-A vehicles. Because of our limited room at the Phoenix Club, we have to limit the vehicle count to 200. If there are spots available after pre-registration closes, we will take entries the day of the event until our maximum capacity is reached.  

**For the Southern California Vintage VW Treffen we offer two levels of entry**

$60 Deluxe Entry: This will get in both driver and one passenger. (must be riding along in the car) For your Deluxe Entry you will be included in the "Participant Judged" portion of the event and receive the "Wolfsburg West Goodie Bag" including the limited edition, numbered car badge and dash plaque. If you have entered in a previous Treffen event and would like the same number as before, that can be arranged. Also, the vehicles picked to park in the Beer Garden and Festal-Tent will be chosen from our Deluxe Entries only. Deluxe entries will also have the option to load in early on Saturday afternoon between 3pm and 6pm and pre-stage their vehicles.
There will be 24hr Security overnight at the Phoenix Club
*No camping Saturday evening at the Phoenix Club*

$20 Standard Entry: These entries will be sold at the gate, on the morning of the event, as space allows. Standard entry participants will be able to park inside on the grass along with all the other early vehicles. The Standard entry is for the person who wants to show up and park inside, but not necessarily interested in receiving any of the limited edition goodies. Be advised that there will be limited Standard entries based on the number of pre-registered Deluxe entries
*Standard entries will not be included in the judged portion of the car show*

No outside Food or Drinks (including alcohol) allowed inside the Phoenix Club.
Please leave your coolers at home and use the provided Concession stands.

No show trailers will be allowed inside the Phoenix Club facility at any time. We are very limited on parking, so if you plan on towing a vehicle, please make arrangements ahead of time to store your truck and trailer offsite.


Your last chance to pre-register for the 2019 event will be on
Saturday September 14th, from 3pm-6pm at the Phoenix Club.

There are only 39 spaces available, once we reach 200 entries the event will be full.


 Each "Deluxe Entry" participant will receive a judging card to fill out and return to the car show registration booth. You are to vote for one car in each class except the class you are registered in. A first place and runner-up award will be given out for each class along with a few specialty awards to be determined later.
