Wolfs•gart (woo lfs-gart; Ger. vawlfs-gürt)
Wolfsgart is the Northeast's & New England's newest and ultimate German car & motorcycle engineering experience. Our roots are in the Volkswagen and Porsche cultures from vintage to modern automotive, but we are also enthusiasts of all things German. From vintage 40's, 50's and 60's early model aircooled cars and buses, classic 70's and now early 80's watercooled Mark I's to modern Mark II, III, IV, V, and the new Mark VI. Classic and late model Audis, BMW, and Mercedes to your vintage and latest Porsches or the iconic new Mini. This is the show not to miss! Whether you're zipping around the northern windy roads in your Mark 1 Golf/Rabbit, dropping the top down on your Porsche 356 Cabriolet, or cruisin' it slow in your all original, patina air-cooled Beetle; Wolfsgart is the place to show your stuff.
Wolfs·burg - noun
A city of north central Germany northeast of Brunswick. Wolfsburg is notable as the headquarters of Volkswagen AG and is where all Volkswagens are designed and built today. Wolfsburg was founded on July 1, 1938 as Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben (English translation: City of the KdF Car at Fallersleben), a planned town around the village of Fallersleben in order to house the workers of the newly opened Volkswagen factories, which were built to assemble the Volkswagen Beetle "the people's car" and remain there today, although Beetle production finished there in 1978 (when it was transferred to Mexico for the final 25 years). In 1945, the city was renamed Wolfsburg after the castle of the same name located in the city, which was founded about 1300 on the bank of the Aller river. In 1951, Wolfsburg was separated from the District of Gifhorn, and became an urban district. In November 2003, Wolfsburg was renamed "Golfsburg" for one week to celebrate the 5th generation of the Volkswagen Golf. The centre of Wolfsburg lacks historical buildings, and the sights include new attractions like the Autostadt (a huge open air museum dedicated to automobiles, owned and operated by Volkswagen). Population: 120,000.
Stutt·gart - noun
A city of southwest Germany on the Neckar River south-southeast of Heidelberg. Chartered in the 13th century, it later developed as an industrial center. It was heavily bombed during World War II. Professor Ferdinand Porsche founded the company called "Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH" in 1931, with main offices at Kronenstraße 24 in the centre of Stuttgart. Initially, the company offered motor vehicle development work and consulting, but did not build any cars under its own name. One of the first assignments the new company received was from the German government to design a car for the people, the Volkswagen. This resulted in the Volkswagen Beetle, one of the most successful car designs of all time. The first Porsche, the Porsche 64, was developed in 1939 using many components from the Beetle. Porsche (the company and the family) fled Stuttgart for Austria where they re-established the company after the war and in Gmund they built the Porsche 356 #1. Porsche did not return to Stuttgart until 1950. Stuttgart is the home of Porsche Cars and is where Ferdinand Porsche designed and built the first Volkswagen. Population: 594,000.
Ingol-stadt - noun
Ingolstadt is a city in the Free State of Bavaria, in the Federal Republic of Germany. It is located along the banks of the Danube River, in the centre of Bavaria. Ingolstadt is also the setting for the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, for the monster created by the scientist Victor Frankenstein. It is the site of the headquarters of the German automobile manufacturer Audi. Audi AG is a German manufacturer of luxury and sport cars. Audi is a premium brand within the Volkswagen Group. The company is headquartered in Ingolstadt, Germany, and is 99.55% owned by Volkswagen AG since 1966. Volkswagen relaunched the Audi brand with the 1965 introduction of the Audi F103 series. Population: 125,000.
Wolfs·gart - noun
Wolfsgart started as an idea to bring together German car enthusiasts with connection to the Volkswagen history and culture into one awesome weekend event. We have created a new style of car event and inventing the trends in the automotive show events. Established in 2010 in Northern Vermont, WOLFSGART is a combination of Wolfsburg, Ingolstadt and Stuttgart. An event for all VWs, Audis and Porsches. For 2012 we decided to bring our other German Car brothers and sisters and opened up the event to all German cars. Our roots will always be in the Volkswagen community with respect to all Car makes and models. The WOLF is a sign of strength and survival representing the automotive community and culture. Population: unlimited.
