Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I want to join a Volkswagen club but I am not a mechanic.  I just like to get in and drive my Volkswagen. Will I fit in with the other members of North Bay Air Cooled?
A lot of our members don’t work on their cars.  Some just love to drive.  We are a highly diverse group of Volkswagen lovers.

I’ve never worked on a car before.  I’m not really mechanically inclined. Aren’t car clubs for guys who hot rod their cars?
Some car clubs may be for guys who hot rid their cars, but North Bay Air Cooled is for EVERYONE who loves Volkswagens.

My Volkswagen isn’t on the road…. yet.
A lot of members have project cars that aren’t on the road.  One of the great things about being in a car club is the support.  Members support members.  Some members are professional Volkswagen mechanics, some are weekend warriors, and others are just learning.  All members love to help.

I’m not finished with my Volkswagen.  She’s not as pretty as I want her to be.
Our members have cars in all states and conditions.  Some are clean, pristine, and stock. Others are chopped, lowered, and loud.  Yet others are only held together by the rust.  With being in a car club, knowledge and ideas are shared.

Aren’t car clubs just for guys?
Maybe some, but not North Bay Air Cooled.  Half of our members are women, and not “just someone’s wife”.  Everyone is welcome.

I don’t have a lot of time.  What’s required to be a member?
A lot of us don’t have a lot of time.  We meet up once a month on the first Saturday of each month.  Not everyone makes every meet up.  Come as often as you like.

I have a family.  Can they come?
North Bay Air Cooled is 100% family friendly.  Children are welcome at all events.
