A view back: The 6th international Vintage Volkswagen Show in Hessisch Oldendorf took place from 26th until June 28, 2013. Alongside the atmosphere of the town of Hessisch Oldendorf with its timbered facades and the nearly traditional program like the evening events in downtown and city hall, the 3-day swap market in rustic timbered atmosphere, an amphibious vehicle tour and the tourist tour, we offered a separate camping area for show participants and visitors with younger vehicles - virtually a huge aircooled show in the show. With over 900 registered vehicles, hundreds of aircooled visitors vehicles, 45.000 visitors and over 1450 participants from 32 nations the last show was the the largest vintage VW show of the world. Approximately 30 people volunteered a team led by Traugott and Christian Grundmann. They were more than 10 days on site to make this show happen after a preparation period of almost 2 years.
