hey everyone... i was writing this thread to tell anyone that is within close proximity of Toledo that there is a big car get-together every friday and saturday night in Toledo!!!! It's not all Volkswagens, mostly just imports as a whole, but i personally would love to see some more Volkswagens roll into our parking lot!!!!
The location is at the corner of Airport and Reynolds. In the Pier 1 parking lot. The venue usually starts at about 9'ish at night..
We've been having a good turnout on the nights that are warm... and it's looking like this summer should be pretty crazy.. about a month ago we had a weekend that was like 70 and we had like 75-100 cars there and like some 200-300 people there!!!!! so if anyone lives with in driving distance of Toledo stop on by!!!!

Hope to see you there!!!!

As soon as its warmer i'll be there!!! hopefully I can get some of the Cleveland and Mentor crowd out here too. Its gonna be sweet as soon as its not stupid winter in the middle of spring.
Edit: it freaking snowing outside right now!!! I hate this crap.

Re: Attention Toledo and Surrounding Area Vdubers!!!! (Turbo C-Ya)

i know, late post but what the hey

i just got my 2002 VW GTi 1.8T on April 5th and have been buzzing around toledo in it. In toledo, I have only seen 2 other GTI's, a red one and a black one...anyone of these belong to anyone here? seen quite a few vw's in the last week though, even pulled up next to a yellow turbo beetle with a smiley face on the front of it.
maybe i will come out to airport one of these fridays when i am not working. right now i am bone stock, but that will change around midmay when i have money to invest into exhaust/intake/chip.
if you see a silver vw gti 1.8t around alexis road, that's mine. give me ahint you are from the board and i will pull over and chat or contact me on aim or icq.

bump and question...
any truth to the rumor of cops and fighting last friday night? i didn't make it out there, but if this stuff i heard holds true, i doubt i will be heading out there.
someone clarify the situation for me if you know.

Re: Attention Toledo and Surrounding Area Vdubers!!!! (WebRioter)

Why don't you guys up there ORGANIZE something like a Euro/VW/Audi/whatever GTG?
Maybe a cruise, then show/shine/eat.
No offense, but what's so great about dickswinging/representin' in a parking lot full of hobby-of-the-month Honda tuners?

Re: Attention Toledo and Surrounding Area Vdubers!!!! (g60-inside)

actually, there are quite a few nice vw's in toledo, and i have seen a couple nice audi's, just none of them post on this board really. i know of 3 gti's in toledo, and quite a few golf/jetta's that are new and pretty damn nice looking.
btw, i heard the cop thing at pier 1 was because of noise.

I will probably be doing an UPsolute GTG for VW/Audi on Sunday May 26 (Memorial Day sunday) in Oregon (east of Toledo). Mostly for chiptuning, but many OH-MI guys come to hang out.

That's why you organize...get on OhioVW, get on VWEdge...build something.
Posting a "show up guys" isn't nearly enough. I'd love to come to a GTG back in my old hometown.
Here in Columbus, the metroparks are cool w/lotsa cars showing up. Plus they have BBQ facilities.
Wildwood would work, huh?

yes, wildwood would work perfectly. pick one of the side lots(2 or 3) and i bet we could fill up most of the spaces.
i have no objections with something like this. i'll try and talk it over with someo of the toledo vw'rs when i talk to them next.
