Welcome to The North Alabama Volkswagen Club. Our group is made up of water and aircooled Volkswagen enthusiasts from North Alabama and the surrounding areas. Together, we formed the NAVWC to help promote and spread our passion for VW’s. We also gather together to discuss what’s new in the world of Volkswagen, check out each other’s rides, cruise, and sometimes just hang out.
We also host an annual car show, called Bug’n In July, to benefit our sponsored charity, Crisis Services of North Alabama. This year, there’s been a few changes made to our show. It’s now a one-day show and while it’s still in Decatur, it’s in a much better location. Check out the Bug’n page for all the details.
If you’d like some more information on the North Alabama Volkswagen Club, please contact us or check out our membership section. You can also come sit in on one of our monthly business meetings or our informal Get-Togethers and cruises throughout the year. The locations are subject to change, so check the meeting section before heading out to make sure we’re there!

August 2nd is the 1st Saturday of the month so that means the Swiss Pantry will be making fresh donuts! It was suggested at the last cruise in that we cruise up there for some donuts (glazed, chocolate covered, and everyone’s favorite, maple). It’s not that long a trip and the route takes us through some scenic countryside. We’ll meet up at the Publix on Winchester Road in Huntsville on August 2nd, at 8:30 AM and then around 9 AM. Hope everyone can make it!
If you’re looking for a good place to have lunch, the Swiss Pantry can make you a delicious sandwich and you can ride down to the old Mill nearby.
The North Alabama Volkswagen Club would like to thank everyone that attended our 15th Annual Bug’n in July charity car show. Though it looked as though it might rain all day, there was only a brief shower in the morning and we ended up having another great show. We hope everyone had a great time and we’d like to congratulate the following winners of this year’s Bug’n in July:

Bug’n in July would not be possible without the help of our sponsors. We would like to thank these sponsors that helped make this year’s Bug’n show happen:
Hundreds of vintage beauties will cruise into the River City July 12, 2014, for a day of festival fun in the heart of Point Mallard Park. The annual Greater Tennessee Valley Antique Car Show has grown to be one of the largest car shows in the region attracting collectors, fans, and spectators from across the southeastern United States and beyond. Along with antique cars and trucks, the event features a huge Swap Meet, live entertainment and arts and crafts.
As spectators admire the antiques and mingle with the owners, live music by Alaina Wiley and Elvis impersonator Michael Dean and arts and crafts provide extra entertainment. The Swap Meet, popular with collectors and classic automotive enthusiasts, features old parts and memorabilia and will be open throughout the day.
Registration is $25 per vehicle and the first 500 entries will receive a dash plague. This year’s prizes for exhibitors include a cash prize of $500 up for grabs every 15 minutes starting at 12:15 p.m. until 2:15 p.m., four $1,000 drawings at the conclusion of the show, a Chevrolet 350 engine and four sets of Chrome Wheels from Minor Tire.
The car show gets underway at 7 a.m. with registration and typically wraps up around 3 p.m. Admission is free for spectators. Sponsors are Lynn Layton Chevrolet, Family Security Credit Union, and Minor Tire and Wheel, and event organizers extend a special thank you to Decatur Parks and Recreation for allowing the Antique Car Show to be held at Point Mallard Park.
