Once again No Dough returned to Port Orange, Florida for another year and this year with a theme; 80’s theme. No Dough is an event created by Volkswagen enthusiast for Volkswagen enthusiast. While this event is primarily air-cooled base, you do see some well built water-cooled Volkswagen. This event brings you back to the roots for what Volkswagen events where created for and what being an Volkswagen enthusiast is all about.
If there’s one place in the world that I cannot stand to go, it’s the mall. I don’t know whats worse; the people who are loud as hell and bump into you without saying a word, or the fact that it’s usually chalk full of people with lines that extend to Egypt. The only somewhat good thing of going to malls is going to the really fancy ones that advertise an Aston Martin in front of the Yves St. Laurent stores. Such a shame when the salesmen tells you to move along knowing full well an Aston isn’t in your future while wearing some joggers, a shirt from PacSun, and a pair of VANS. But wouldn’t it be awesome if you could walk inside the same mall and see an entire store filled with cars you could afford? (and by that I mean VW’s of course)
Couple of weekends ago Derek had to chance to snap photos of James MK5 R32 down in South Florida just before parting it, but then just learning he might be keeping it after all. Sounds like every relationship every Volkswagen owner has with their car. Overall James has created a MK5 R32 that we at Dub Empire call OEM ++.
There are only a handful of annual events within the European car community that are extremely well organized and show case a handful of exquisitely built cars. One annual event that has been going on now for 3 years is Euro Tripper, hosted in South Florida by Paul Barney and his hard working staff. It feels like just yesterday we were attending the first Euro Tripper event in Estero, FL.
Cars, enthusiasts, toys, and holiday cheer came together for the 11th Annual Motor 4 Toys Charity Car Show and Toy Drive on the morning of December 7th, 2014. Presented by The Auto Gallery Los Angeles, Coastline Motorsport.net, and Fiat in Woodland Hills, California. Car enthusiasts from all over California came to show their support, with approximately over 2,000 cars and 5,000 people in attendance. A group of 100 members, one of the many sponsors of the event, even drove down to Los Angeles from the Northern California the day before. Other sponsors included HRE Wheels, Audi Club of Los Angeles, and California Car Cover Co.
Words from Cole Young:
“A Euro Tripper 3 Sequel – On our way back me and my good buddies (pretty much family) were going through an old town with a ran down gas station. While everyone was in one spot I wanted to film everyone’s cars. These are the guys that I look forward hanging out with every other weekend and recognizing each other as a family. ”
