Orangeville Volkswagen Show, Shine, Cars & Coffee
If you’re an auto enthusiast with a special interest in German
engineering, the Wolfsburg Dub Out 2016 offers the best show in the region when it comes to Volkswagens, and Audis.
Up to 150 German engineered car owners are expected to bring their rides to the event which will be held in the parking lot at Orangeville Volkswagen on Highway 10. This the second annual Dub Out hosted by Orangeville Volkswagen.
The Dub Out is named after Wolfsburg – a city in Germany which is home to the Volkswagen international headquarters.
With a trademark that is known around the world, VW owners are a loyal group that take pride in their vehicles and when it comes to vintage cars, Volkswagens seem to last forever.
The iconic Volkswagen Bug is probably the most recognizable Volkswagen product ever built. In fact it’s probably one of the most recognizable automobiles that ever came off a production line anywhere in the world.
Classic Bug owners love their cars. They are fun to drive, easy to maintain, and still turn heads when one is travelling down a highway or city street.
Several of the Bugs that were at the first annual Wolfsburg Dub Out were vintage classics in original condition and are still on the road.
Mr. Suppa doesn’t just work at an auto dealership, he’s an active member of an exotic car club with a genuine interest in automobiles. He has been involved with Volkswagen since age 15 when he began learning as a technician and also worked at a performance shop.
“Our show is all German cars, but mainly Volkswagens and Audis. Bring your Volkswagen, Audi’s,. All German cars are welcome.”
The dealership plans to clear all inventory from the parking lot and the showroom for the event to allow plenty of space for the arrival and staging of participating owners and their cars.
“It’s a ‘Dub’ thing,” Mr. Suppa said, referring to the vernacular that Volkswagen owners use to describe their vehicles when shortening the ‘W’ in Volkswagen down to a single syllable. “Volkswagens are called ‘Dub’s,’ as in ‘Vee-dubs.’ It’s been a Dub thing forever. Owning a Volkswagen is a culture and it’s been like that for a long time. Volkswagen is one of the original companies to start car shows. A lot of people like to customize them and others like to keep them as original as possible. Volkswagen shows are always great gatherings. People get together and look at other people’s cars and get ideas.”
This event, Mr. Suppa stressed, isn’t about selling cars – it’s about bringing the community together and sharing a passion.
“This event is for fun, to get the community together,” Mr. Suppa explained. “There’s nothing about selling cars on that day. It’s all about community and having a good time. You can meet our staff and see that we’re all friendly. There will be door prizes, a 50/50 draw, and food on site. We’ll have vendors and a live D.J.”
The entrance fee for the event is a canned food donation which will then be given to the Orangeville Food Bank.
If you have a German engineered vehicle, polish it up, wipe the rims, and give the trim a little extra attention for the show. There will be prizes for vehicles that stand out or have and added feature that has everyone else taking note.
Orangeville Volkswagen isn’t your typical VW dealer. Over the past several years the Orangeville dealership has been Wolfsburg Champions.
To win this prestigious award, Volkswagen headquarters sets up high level guidelines that must be met. Receiving the Wolfsburg Championship award means a dealership has exceeded Volkswagen’s expectations in customer service and surpassed company expectations in all departments.
The staff at Orangeville Volkswagen are proud of this achievement which acknowledges their hard work and dedication.
The Dub Out will be the largest gathering of German cars in the region but that doesn’t mean you have to own one to come out and see the show.
No matter what you drive, if you enjoy fine automobiles this is one show you won’t want to miss.
The Orangeville Volkswagen Wolfsburg Dub Out will take place on Sunday, August 7, at the dealership location at 633222 Highway 10.
The event will get underway at 11:00 a.m. and run through to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
