Welcome to the official site of the 2008 Type 3 VW Invasion!

The 2008 Invasion will be on July 31-August 3, 2008!

in Ypsilanti, Michigan.


Check out the Host Motel Info and make your reservations early!


Location of the 2008 Invasion has moved! We were unable to secure the whole weekend at the park in Saline that was our first choice. We have moved the Invasion to Ford Lake Park in Ypsilanti. This is only 12 miles or so away from the original site. Check out the Maps, Directions, Site Photos link for all the details.


We have had some questions about fellow VW enthusiasts bringing their Type 1, Type 2, or Thing to the Invason. The "TYPE 3 INVASION" appreciates your enthusiasm. However, this is a 'different' type of event. In the course of a summer the T-2 crowd has their "Buses By the Bridge" in Havasu, and "The Bulli Brigade", in Florida, and as usual there are many events for T-1's to join, like the VW Classic, Sacramento Bug O Rama and Octo and on and so forth. But since the T-3 is one of the orphans of the VW world, this is a get together for T-3's only. You are welcome to come and see all the various T-3's, including possibly some even more rare T-34's, but T-1's and T-2's are not 'invited' to the Invasion as such. We hope you will understand.

Finally, remember what the original focus of the Type 3 Invasions is... Show up at a smallish town, meet other Type 3 people with a common interest, enjoy building a kindred bond with said other people, enjoy each others company and cars, maybe even learn something new at one of the tech sessions, and most of all, just relax! The Invasion is NOT a judged car show. Just a friendly gathering.

So, make plans, save up vacation time and come to SE Michigan in 08!
