North Bay Air Cooled – A Vintage Volkswagen Club

North Bay Air Cooled

North Bay Air Cooled is a vintage Volkswagen club.  It was the vision of founders Don Haugen and Alex Weeks.  North Bay Air Cooled was founded in July 2013 in Napa, California.

North Bay Air Cooled currently has over 400 members registered on its Facebook Page and has roughly 60 active members in Napa and its surrounding cities. The club allows members to network on all subjects regarding air cooled Volkswagens.  Unlike some clubs, North Bay Air Cooled welcomes ALL Volkswagens from the “air cooled” era.  Car models currently owned by North Bay Air Cooled members include:
Karmann Ghia
Split Window Bus
Bay Window Bus
Volksrod / Frankenrod

What does North Bay Air Cooled Do?

North Bay Air Cooled works to support and educate the community.  By supporting local charities, participation in the annual Napa July 4th and Christmas parades, and as of 2017 holding an annual car show!

North Bay Air Cooled holds monthly meetups and cruises on the first Saturday of each month at the In-N-Out Burger on Imola Ave in Napa, California at 5pm. In July members gather to celebrate the founding of the club and in December members meet to celebrate the holidays.

The members of NBAC encourage all Bay Area vintage Volkswagen owners to attend our events. We love meeting new people and new air cooled cars.  To learn more about membership check out our membership page.

Our objectives are:

  1. To have fun!
  2. Promote the preservation and operation state of classic air cooled Volkswagens.
  3. Create a network of members who support each other mechanically, through sharing of ideas, and sometimes even emotional support.
  4. To educate others on the joy of owning, driving, and working on a classic Volkswagen.
  5. Support other Volkswagen clubs, and the greater “Volkswagen Community” at large.
  6. To build friendships with fellow Volkswagen lovers.
