Friends of GermanAutoBASH 2012!

GermanAutoBASH - Ohio's European Car show

GermanAutoBASH's inspiration comes from the very core of the VAG community's culture: an event for the people, by the people. GermanAutoBASH was founded on the idea of creating an event to give not only Ohio, but all surrounding areas a laid-back summertime event where the enthusiasts and friends could gather. In our 5 years of doing this event, we have not waivered from this core value that we hold in high regard. We can attest, as can others, that the VAG community has given us a lot. in both friendships and camaraderie amongst them, and this event is our way of giving back to the community which has treated us so well. We do this becuase we love the community and we hope you enjoy attending GermanAutoBASH because of our dedication. However, this event isn't strictly VAGs; We are open to anyone and everyone who enjoys a nice afternoon with friends and appreciating everyone's cars. Forget egos, its all about the cars here!

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or want to share any other thoughts with us, do not hesitate to shoot us a message at the Contact Us page. We are always open to hearing what the community wants because, as we mentioned, this event is for you. Don't forget to spread the word by sending everyone you know our official flyer found here.

We look forward to seeing you in July and hope that you enjoy the event as much as we enjoy putting it together for you!

About GermanAutoBASH

What is GermanAutoBASH? Its more than just a car show. It's the culmination of 8 months of work done by its core organizers: Tony, Garrett, Amber, Chris, and Justin. They together plan the show's every detail, securing sponsors, and getting the word out to make each year a success. However, without the help of friends, and sometimes family, to help the organizers, it wouldn't be possible to run the show.

GermanAutoBASH started as this idea Tony had in 2008 to have a large Ohio GTG to rejoin the Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinatti scenes together each summer. It quickly grew as he soon realized what he could do with this idea and ran with it. In 4 quick years, the show has grown into a regional event, garnering attendees from as far away as Chicago and Buffalo, and there is no end in sight for the growth. Each year, the show gets better and grows from the previous year, no matter what the circumstances. Without the support of the Ohio Euro car clubs, this show wouldn't be where it is.

Be sure to stop by the Show Tent at GermanAutoBASH to say "hi" to Tony - Assuming you can find him!
