Jacksonville, FL - The 24th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance’s Custom Coachwork VW special class unleashed a series of personal and amusing Volkswagen reminiscences from the Amelia’s staff. Seems everyone has a Volkswagen story.

So we decided to expand on that: please share your VW stories with us. The older and wackier the better. Photos are especially welcome and prized around here.
Warning! Some stories and photos may end up on our website and/or in a press release. Warning Mk II; we’re rooting around our archives for a few special and appropriate rewards for the VW stories that make us laugh out loud or, at least, smile.
THE AMELIA will be held March 7-10, 2019 at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and The Golf Club of Amelia Island. For the Amelia’s full events schedule, including Saturday’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours and Sunday’s premier Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, visit www.ameliaconcours.org. The show’s Foundation has donated over $3.45 million to Community Hospice & Palliative Care and other charities on Florida’s First Coast since its inception in 1996.
