iHeartEuro.com held its first cruise for the season on May 24th. About 20 cars left Montreal that sunny Sunday with Ottawa as final destination. At some point Greg (mk4 Jetta with A8 wheels) got to lead – no one knew his GPS was all messed up and gave us some weird directions. Well, that gave us a reason for a short stop to take some pictures… An hour later after the stop we reached Ottawa and met up with the OVD (Ottawa V-dubbing) club. Another photoshoot and we headed to Broadway Bar & Grill since many of us were getting hungry. A few cars headed back to Montreal right after eating, others stayed to hang out with Ottawa guys for a while.

In the end it was a good turnout. The day was beautiful, the ride was fun, the cars were great (for the most part) and of course bunch of friendly folks. Ottawa will become our “MUST” cruise every year. Next up – an improvised cruise. We will head wherever the roads take us, then return home with a GPS (not Greg’s)…

And here is a little video of the cruise. (Sorry for my 2001 crappy camera). Donation for an HD cam are accepted :D

iHeartEuro

After long and cold hibernation (at least in Canada it was long and cold) folks are starting to take their stored rides out. People start working on their projects, swapping wheels, going to meets and car festivals.

Many changes are coming to iHeartEuro.com this year. The community is growing and hopefully our forum will get more active in the next few weeks. Cruises, contests and videos are coming to iHeartEuro – so don’t forget to visit us often!

Yet another successful cruise, this time to Ottawa!

9 cars left from Montreal, unfortunately someone got lost… I still can’t figure out how we lost someone on the highway…

We got to Ottawa’s Broadways restaurant and met up with some dubbers from OVD, had lunch, then moved to Vincent Massey Park to take some pictures… All the photos could be found HERE

Great people, great drive, great time!

… and to the next cruise! (Hopefully with more European cars)

Wow. My car took a serious beating this week-end, as I went to NYC. I busted my mag, ended up in Bronx, and drove back to Montreal on a spare. I also met some cool dubbers on the way :) A full story and a photo report could be found on the forum. (Just Click Here!)

Automuseum Volkswagen in Wolfsburg

I have realized one of my dreams as a Vee-Dubber. As I was traveling to Western Europe I decided to check out the Volkswagen Museum and the Autostadt – VW Factory in Wolfsburg, Germany. I got to the museum an hour before closing so I didn’t have too much time to look at all those cars, however I did snap a few photos.

After the museum I went to Autostadt – an attraction center in the area of Vw Factory, a place larger then Monaco… who would have thought? Unfortunately Autostadt’s website hasn’t been updated and they close at 6pm, not at 9 as stated on their site so I had to miss out on this one.

I drove the 250km to Berlin where my hotel was located and decided to come back to Wolfsburg the following day.

After a wild night in Berlin with lots of local cheap beer I wasn’t able to get up at 7 am as I planned. Around 11 am, when I was having an apple danish with an espresso, I found out that leaving earlier wouldn’t have been so great since the traffic going in and out of Berlin is horrible in the morning…

By noon I was finally in my rental 1.2L Corsa, on my way to the Autostadt. Light rain mixed with heavy clouds didn’t bother me a bit because of all the excitement of seeing all those Bentleys, Lambos, Audis and Volkswagens… I also knew that it could be my only chance to see the new Scirocco since their future in the North America is still very vague.

…few hours later, tired but still excited I was very happy with the outcome. I got to see (and to sit in) a bunch of great cars, mostly the Scirocco, R8 and the A8L W12!, I also saw he famous VW towers…

I would sure visit again, and if you are a true dubber – visiting Woulfsburg certainly should be on your “things to do before I die” list!

Here are some photos from the Wolfsburg Autostadt.

The first edition of the Orangeball Rally, just a year ago was a huge success. Over 50 dubs showed up at the famous Montreal road attraction – Orange Julep. 1 hour later these cars were on their 400 miles journey to New Jersey’s Raceway Park for the world famous Waterfest VW/Audi festival.

In 2008 the Orangeball’s second edition is back. This time it is also bigger and stronger. More sponsors, more cars, more fun! The Orangeball rally is not a race but a cruise which makes it much more relaxing and less dangerous. iHeartEuro.com is proud to be sponsoring the Orangeball Rally 2008!
