Meet The June 26, 2022 Featured Car Klub!!


The Original German Folks Klub VW, was founded in 1982, and are celebrating their 40th Anniversary in 2022. The klub was founded by Ruben Navarro, in the Inland Empire. They started as a small “family” club, but have now grown to a large “family” club that has chapters in California, Las Vegas, Arizona, Texas and also in the U.K, Japan, and Netherlands. The German Folks Klub specializes in pre-1967 VW’s. At this time, club member’s vehicles include a wide variety of bugs, ghias, buses, notch backs, and squarebacks, too. The club’s main focus is Resto-style. This style, referred to by most as “GFK Style”, is restoring the car to factory specs, using as much NOS parts as possible, to get the vehicle back to 100% factory original. They then lower the car by adding a narrowed and cut front end and lower the rear a couple of notches, so it sets on the ground. “Hard to find” NOS accessories are then added to their vehicles to enhance appearance and add along with OG Porsche Fuchs or OG 5-spoke rims. German Folks VW’s have been published in magazines and books all around the world and have won many awards at the same time. The club is involved with Volkswagen shows such as the VW Classic, Hot VW’s Drag Day and Bug-In, in Irwindale, CA. They are a staple at the Pomona Swap Meet & Classic Car Show and also attend numerous other car shows year round, including Lowrider shows, the Grand National Roadster show, the DUB show and several local community car shows too.
