Save the Date ....  Palms to Pines 2012

Join us in beautiful Palm Springs California November 16th - 18th.

By "popular" demand the Palms to Pines Tour returns to the beautifully renovated Riviera Hotel, site of last year's West Coast Holiday.

Enjoy a premier resort experience at Palms to Pines prices.

Located on North Indian Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, The Riviera Resort is a fabulous retreat with casual elegance, select amenities and attentive service---shuttles are available to the famed Palm Canyon Drive. This avenue is a shopper's paradise of quaint stores, fabulous restaurants, intriguing boutiques, and even gambling at the Spa Casino.
After a long day of shopping or gambling relax with a spa treatment or at the Cabana bar adjacent to the pool.

Palm Springs ­ California's exotic world-class desert hideaway. It's convenient to, yet removed from, the west's big cities. A community where perfect weather, spectacular scenery and sophisticated culture have created one of the world's truly great resort destinations.

Enjoy the Fall foliage on the scenic drive up to Idyllwild over mountain roads designed with the 356 in mind-not for the faint of heart! Spend the evening talking "cars" to your heart's content with other 356 club members.

VW Bus - Love, Peace & Camping!

Volkswagen-enthusiasts gathered on Sunday Aug 12th to showcase their vehicles at Deerpark in Escondido, California.

These VW buses are so cute next to each other like toy cars :)

It was a hot day with temperatures up in 100s so you really appreciated the shade the camper gave you!

"Best of the Show" : This 1951 VW bug with trailer; restored to original in pristine condition

Here come the Bugs...

Very nicely restored Karmann Ghia

Deer Park Valley gave a beautiful setting to the casual VW gettogether
- note the vineyard in the back of this 1955 bus!
