Darmstadt Treffen 2006 Share Comments At 8AM, September 10, 2006 the Darmstadt Treffen opened its gates to those cars arriving early to display at the event. Vendors prepared their booths, attendees cleaned their cars and organizers were trying to keep everything under control. The bulk of the show field was held inside, so heavy rain wouldn’t be much of a bother, but the good weather held, making it unneccessary for protection from the rain… though still effective for protection from sunburn. More than 500 cars attended the show, competing for one of the many trophies. Even more anticipated was a very significant raffle, giving away anything from a brand new Volkswagen GTI to airline tickets or sets of wheels.
