Odd things you find in a garage. I was driving down a side street and saw a guy working on an old split window bus. Stopped to chat it up and noticed this sign in his garage. He told me he was never a member and can't remember how he got it. Maybe Dalton can chime in on this piece of memorabilia.

WOW.. The flash back...

I probably don't know the whole story I joined the Arizona Volkswagen club in the early 90s but I do remember all the hand-painted artwork that the club had much of this artwork and club property was stored at members houses depending on what division of the club you were in.

Back when I joined the club we had drag racers, streetcars, buses, and off-road all in one big house. We were the biggest Volkswagen club in Arizona these hand-painted signs were used much like bug-o-rama uses their signs to direct people to the appropriate spots the color orange was chosen because it was the favorite color of one of our big sponsors. From what I remember there should be 30 or 40 different signs by the same artist.

Much of the club property was lost when the four divisions of the club broke off and started their own clubs since the off roaders made up the majority of the club we ended up with the name. We were going to change the name to something more appropriate to an off roading club. But we keep getting offers for someone to buy the name so I think we feel that it has value so we never got rid of it.

With the death of the Arizona Romers last year this makes the Arizona Volkswagen club the oldest Volkswagen club still in existence in Arizona.

This is the Arizona Volkswagen clubs 28th car show swap meet I was president at the time and we donated 1 1/2 tons of nonperishable food to St. Mary's food bank with the check for almost $2000 that was collected from this event. our car show swap meets where the second largest Volkswagen event in Arizona just behind Bug-O-Rama.

I just got word last week.... That another vintage VW club has passed away..

The Wolfburg Registry has thrown in the towel..

I believe that their only operating privately..

With the AVC membership still growing the AVC only has four founding members left....
