Every year we have some questions from 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 Type 2 crowd has their "Buses By the Bridge" in Havasu, and "The Bulli Brigade", in Florida, and as usual there are many events for Type 1's to join, like the VW Classic, Sacramento Bug O Rama and Octo and on and so forth. But since the Type 3 is one of the orphans of the VW world, this is a get together for Type 3's only. You are welcome to come and see all the various Type 3's, including possibly some even more rare Type 34's, but Type 1's and Type 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 join a bunch of Type 3 nuts in Prescott Valley, AZ in 2016!
