Finding members to make the trip is not the hard part, the hard part is finding members who can and will organize the event. There is a lot to planning a successful event that typically takes several months of planning and coordination.

Pretty much like holiday family get-togethers, seems everybody wants to show up to a party but nobody wants to actually do it.

VW still has a lot of leftover diesels to sell. I drove by our local storage lot yesterday and it doesn't look significantly different than it did a year ago. I suspect that's true all over the country. VW will continue to feed TDIs to dealers, prices will get more favorable, and these cars will probably stick around as good economical transportation for a lot of people. But when they're gone, who knows.


I agree with indigo... I’m a DIY newbie on this forum. I just bought my first VW TDI(2015 Golf SEL).
I’ve previously owned three W123 Mercedes Turbo Diesels and a ‘76 W115 240D...
I’ve actively been watching sales on the Golf SEL TDI in particular.
In the last three weeks 24 have been sold around the US. I understand that it will take a year to update and auction the balance of the storage cars... it will be another ‘baby boom’ of TDI’s on the market

And while I’m on my soapbox, my Golf is amazing. It’s one of my favorite cars to date. The automatic DSG is a treat, the speed of the car and tightness of the suspension is lovely. What a fun car to drive!
