Galassi's Gigs

For the past few years, Dave Galassi has thrown open the doors of his shop in Irwindale for a once a year meeting of gear-heads. Dave loves VW's but has a fondness for Gassers and Hot Rods as well. There's plenty of food and cold beer flows freely. A deserted street beckons out front and then the fun starts... usually followed by the arrival of the cops! ALWAYS a great afternoon.

ScottP's Retirement Party

Bug-In 37 Weekend 4/27-29/2012

The BIG WEEKEND is finally here and what better way to kick things off then a Friday afternoon / evening at Nick's Burgers in Fullerton! Not as many cars as the Classic edition, but still a nice crowd on hand for a beautiful Southern California day. The Schley brothers held another great party at Paul's home in Villa Park that was well attended by many visiting dignitaries Saturday afternoon. DKP was honored with driveway parking once again! 8-). The Grand Finale was Bug-In 37 held at the freshly re-opened Irwindale Dragstrip which was one of the best shows in years! Enjoy the pics!

2012 VW Classic Weekend

WOW!! Another Classic is in the books. Beginning with our Friday Nick's cruise followed by an impromptu Saturday afternoon party at Sarge's house to the Classic on Sunday, it was all good!!

Beecher's BBQ Bash 2012

Hats off and a BIG thank you to Steve Beecher for hosting a nice BBQ yesterday afternoon at his impressive digs. It's been a while since the last party at Steve's house and there were a number of new home improvements to check... most notably the garage addition, a total kitchen rebuild and an annoying wall removal. We feasted on burgers and hot dogs all washed down with PLENTY of cold beer... then there was those mini chocolate cupcakes with the Reese's Peanut Butter cups inside... OH MY!!! As most of us who know Steve best can attest to, he is quite the savvy shopper at all the local swap meets, so there was plenty to check out in the house not to mention that six car garage! Thanks Steve!!!

Santa's Lil Helper 2012

Even though it rained, we had a great turn out and a huge pile of toys and goodies to transfer to Fullerton PD so that they could give them to the needy in the community. DKP thanks everyone that came out and donated toys for a great cause.

Bug In 38 Weekend

WOW, what a weekend! I'm still trying to figure out how three days went by so quickly. From the Friday Nick's Cruise to a great afternoon of fun, food and friends sponsored by DKK at Heroe's in Fullerton to the GRAND FINALE at Irwindale, it was all GREAT! Cool getting to see Jere Alhadeff, Craig Foster, Sergio Rampone and countless others... just the best! Enjoy!

Classic Weekend 2013

Can’t recall a better (or bigger) event… there was something on the lot for every taste! This year’s Classic was simply AMAZING! The cars on display from Buddy Hale and Dave “Pip” Pipoli were WAY over the top! Great seeing old friends from the past… Mike Martinez (DKP II) even dropped by the DKP compound for a chat. It was all over way too quick but the memories will last!
