In Texas in July, you can count on it being hot. Now, you can also count on der Luftkuhlers doing a smash-up job of putting on their Dub Splash VW car show. The 2017 edition of Dub Splash was their sixth, and it was bigger and better than ever. The unofficial count had over 740 Volkswagens in attendance! There was a huge variety of cars: air-cooled, water-cooled, stock, and customs. They ranged from beaters and daily drivers to exquisite show cars. Mix that with a full swap meet area, a DJ and band, raffles, and the festive environment of the Sandy Lake Amusement Park, and you’ve got a party! I had such a good time hanging out with friends and taking photos. Next year I’m going to have to get there earlier so I can catch more of the water-cooled cars. There is no way to capture everything, but please enjoy the sampling of cars in this gallery!
