I called the organizer for the VW air cooled show down in Greeneville TN next month to ask if I could display my Trabant. He had never heard of one before. I explained it was the East German version of the Type 1, well so to speak. He asked, "Is it air cooled?" I guess that's a big deal. He looked it up on the internet and said, "Yeah bring it". He took down my name so if I showed up I would be let in. I explained to him I wanted to show it where people who are into those kind of cars might have some interest in it. Most of the car shows I goto cater to the vintage American lead sled crowd which is mostly Chevrolets. I've taken my 68 Ford Fairlane to some car shows and seems the Chevy guys even snub it! Not to mention some of my Fiats. I asked if they had a sub category for oddball German cars like NSUs and DKWs but they did not. One thing I like about the Fiat club is you can put anything in their show as long as it's either made by Fiat, Italian or has some ties to Fiat. Even Vespas and Ducattis. Since Fiats were built in so many different countries and have so many different cousins like the Lada and Yugo. And the fact Fiat was once like IFA where they owned almost every car and tractor company in Italy. One year the show was in Niagra falls and some guys in the area had a Lada Cosack club and showed up. One of the organizers asked why didn't they enter if they knew the show was going to be held and they said they didn't think they would be welcomed because they were not true Fiats depite having Fiat engines.
