Coming Soon: Just Cruzin So Cal VW Club
September 23, 2019
Virginia may be for lovers, but Pomona is for Vee Dubs! Yep. Southern California, and Los Angeles in particular, has always had a strong Volkswagen scene… and we’re proud to be at the heart of it! Our VW following is like no other, with tons of air-cooled parts and accessories in our swap meet area, and hundreds of vintage ‘Dubs in the Car Corral. And on Sunday, October 13th, it’s going to be even better… because we’ll be featuring the Just Cruzin So Cal VW Club on our Main Aisle!
Just Cruzin got their start in 1998, with founding members Carlos “Chuck” Anaya, Victor Gonzales, Gary Tenorio, Ray Castro, Dustin Griffin, and Alfonso Ortiz. The Club attended various car shows, including the Classic and, of course, the Pomona Swap Meet. But, as is often the case, life got in the way: the club took a break in 2003 after a few members got married, and some got out of VWs and into other types of cars. Victor and Chuck kept the Club going through the slow years – most of the original members still had VWs so they would meet up every now and then for a BBQ or a small cruise.
The Club made their comeback in 2008. The Fontana Cruise Night had become a popular spot for classic cars, and a LOT of air-cooled VWs would roll in for it. Eventually, Fontana got too crowded and the Just Cruzin crew realized they needed a Volkswagen only cruise night. In 2010, the Club started their own cruise night at Burger Town U.S.A., located at 760 North Archibald Avenue in Ontario, Calif. The Burger Town Cruise was a success and it still goes on to this day, on the first Friday of every month at 6:30 p.m. With the resurgence of the Club, they’ve also been able to co-host the El Prado Show & Shine in 2017 and 2018, which is always an awesome part of SoCal VW Week every June!
The Just Cruzin members are regulars at Pomona so if you’ve been out to the show before, you might have caught a glimpse of some of their rides. From Bugs to Buses, Ghias to Notchbacks, oval windows to split windows, and safari windows to bay windows, Just Cruzin has some of the baddest VWs around! And they’ll be rolling deep into Pomona on Sunday, October 13th! If you’re into VWs, you do not want to miss this show!
