There’s a running gag with the inner New England dub scene that it will ALWAYS rain for the Dustoff. Meant to “Dust Off” your VW or Audi show car after a winter of careful storage, the Dustoff 2017 is meant to be the groan and stretch after a long hibernation, and it’s HUGE! Thousands of devote attendees filled their cooling systems put air in their tires, and put another zip tie on their distributor caps (I kid) and made the hike out to Thompson Speedway this April 29th, and we were there selling eEuroFest packages, giving away site credits, and soaking up the sun rays for the first time in all the Dustoffs we’ve attended. We are exited to have Blake and Tom as the car show managers for OUR show at Lime Rock (we are calling in the bigtime experience), and this year the show ran without a hitch.
Wow, Just wow. Well done guys. That goes out to all the Staff and Volunteers at Wolfsgart 6.0 in Burlington VT this past weekend, and all the show goers that brought great rides and behaved themselves. What an amazing show. For us, this was one for the books. If it wasn’t on your radar this year, make sure you pencil it in for 2016. eEuroparts rolled in Friday night to set up camp and get ready for the events to come. The chill atmosphere Friday night got us buzzed for what was coming in the next two days. If you’re looking for the best of the VW World (and some other Germanic countries), Wolfsgart is the show for you. From air cooled Kombi Busses to MKVII GTI’s the variety was never ending. Wolfsgart 2015 was everything that you could expect from a show that took place in the Green Mountains.
Rub a Dub Dub is an aging bit of VW scene slang that earned a double meaning at the 2015 New England Dustoff, when showers washed across the show for nearly the entire day. We had been watching the forecast for about a week prior, and prepared for the worst when it came to the electronics we brought. Even though they were predicting 100% chance of rain, we knew that wouldn’t keep us from hitting up this huge VW themed car show. This year organizers moved to a larger venue than previously set up, at Thompson Speedway in beautiful Thompson Connecticut. When the show started, what we feared seemed to be true. The line that we had seen at previous shows wasn’t there, and when 9:30 came by, turnout looked like it would be thin. After the first string of dark clouds went by, shedding the first significant rainfall, all
In anticipation of spring, we’ve restructured our detailing kits to better help our customers get the best clean and shine, and more importantly, the best protection. These kits are nearly exclusively Sonax, some of the best detailing products we’ve ever used straight from Germany. eEuroparts now has two categories of kits for two different types of customers. We have our all encompassing basic kits, that are designed for people that don’t already have some detailing supplies, or that want to switch over to Sonax. These are made to provide something to all aspects of the car wash. Then we have our specialized kits, for a fine tuned clean for customers that may already have incomplete detailing collections. Stage 1: A Basic Kit that has the bare essentials for an easy, high quality clean. That includes the Sonax shampoo, Microfiber drying towel for a spotless clean, wheel cleaner to wash off
Every year for the last 9 years, Ocean State Dubs put’s on New England’s Largest VW/Audi show, and new for 2015 will be eEuroparts.com as executive sponsor! We’re exited to roll out and set up at Thompson Motor Speedway on May 31, 2015 to enjoy an entire facility full of amazing customs, limited production rarities (expect to see at least one harlequin MKIII to show up), and even a few exotics. We will have Baker’s Dozen Racing with us at our booth to show off a legit VDub rally car, very cool. The show will include judged events and prizes so if you have a show car that fits the bill, we’ll see you there! Come out on May 31st of this year to Thompson Motor Speedway to get the show season started with New England Dustoff 2015!
