I wanted to introduce you to the 12th Annual Dubs Along the Rockies (DATR) Show is Colorado's premier Volkswagen and Audi enthusiast event. The event includes cars covering the entire range of VW and Audi products from the original Type 1 up to the newest Audi R8.
The show is scheduled for Saturday August 10th, 2013 just south of Denver, Colorado at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker, with the gorgeous front range of the Rocky Mountains as our backdrop. Our goal is to provide far more than your typical car show by hosting a swap meet, new vendors, and fun events for everyone in your household including face painting and Bungee Jumping.
Hardey's Motorwerks is returning as the title sponsor for this year. We are working on some new and exciting things and activities for DATR2013. However, we are open for all suggestions. Let us know what you think, and what you want. We will try our best to address each concern.
Dubs Along the Rockies 2013 will be held at Sports Authority Stadium.
The stadium is located on Newlin Gulch Rd. in Parker, Colorado.
The Sports Authority Stadium is owned and operated by Douglas County School District. This means the event is a dry event; no drugs, no alcohol.

Today is May 31st and we are 71 days away from the best show since… well since last year’s DATR. Online registration will be opening up Monday June 3rd. There are five main groups to choose from; Water-Cooled VW, Air-Cooled VW, Audi, Euro, and VWAG Other. In each you will find the classes for registration. Pick the class that your car fits into. There will be an area to fill out some info on your car. We will print these out and have them for you the day of the show. This way there is no need to have a pen and write it down when you can be spending that time putting the finishing touches on your detail!
If you register online; you will receive saving that you will not get at the door. For instance; register online for only $10.00. The cost will be $15.00 day of the show.
We also have some packages available when you register. This first is just to register your car for the show. If you want a 2013 event tee shirt, there will be an option for that as well, and the third package includes show registration, an event tee and a pilsner glass with the 2013 logo on it. There will be men’s and women’s tees to choose from.

and we know that Ford has "german" cars.. and well Volkswagen has North American cars.. However, we are going to stay true to the original intent of "german" car. meaning Company world HQ is in Germany (Europe) lol. ;-)
