Please have people interested,” LIKE” 40’s In A Bag and indicate they are coming on this event page. Thanks
May 5th is the day to be alive this year. 40s is kicking off its 11th annual GTG. If you are new to the show, it is the chillest, most laid back show format of all time and has some of the most unique and high quality cars around. It is a true enthusiasts event with a cultural and social aspect that is unrivaled by any other show. Since we don’t focus on Stance alone, we avoid the riffraff. Euro cars ONLY. THERE WILL BE NO OTHER TYPES OF CARS ALLOWED on the show field PERIOD…!!!!!! Unless you contact me prior and are are on a very special but limited list. Don’t be that guy. The show is FREE, and we pledge to keep it that way. Please support our efforts by participating in our raffle, or purchasing a shirt, beer glass., or beer opener.
MANDATORY – PLEASE READ – The show is free, but the way you vote for the best car is via putting your empty 40 bottle in front of the car of your choice. Failure to bring a 40, will constitute an entry fee of $ 5 to the show. If the point is missed with the 40 bottles, then so is the free show concept.
Don’t forget about the special feature at nightfall. The giant drive in size outdoor “Euro Speed Theater” will be in full effect. Of course the normal 15 foot diameter campfire, beer pong etc will also be in full tilt awesome mode. Giant 1981 VW dealer sign and a matching Audi dealer sign will light your way around.
As usual we are raffling off a WHOLE car. Tickets will be $10 each or 3 for $ 20 just like previous years.
We will be selling unique T-shirts again with cool graphics. 40s Coozies, Hoodies and other merch. Again, the show is free, so please support a great event by participating in the raffle and/or the shirts. We are also adding some sweet beer pints and credit card style beer bottle openers.
Camping is Free – Camping will be granted via a pre-registration system only. Camping will be exclusively conducted on the adjacent field across the street where no cars are permitted. ( no camp fires per land owner’s request )
VENDING – Anyone looking to Vend, should contact Aaron Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org . Vending will be limited as usual, but very cheap to attend.
Show closes 6pm – You don’t have to leave, but no one else is allowed in after 6pm. Again, I say it every year, it is not an after party for a bunch of bimbos in Hondas, but more a rare cultural treat for those who came for the show. Camping is available because face it, a long day in the Sun, drinking Malt liquor, makes you drunk and tired. Leaving the event puts you and others in danger. Town, County, Watershed DEP and State Police had a commanding presence on area roads last year, and you should expect the same. You leave, you will get caught. No question about it.
AFTER DARK VEHICLE MOBILITY BAN – Here is the deal – My neighbors are mad cool, but they don’t want to hear engines, and have headlights beaming into their homes all night long. We also had a few minor ( which could have been major ) incidents involving vehicles on the move…. NEW RULE – Have your vehicle moved upfront if you are camping out by Dusk.. No Cars start their engines PERIOD after Dark. Seems minor, but it is a major concern for those who know why. Thank You in advance for your cooperation.
No burnouts, no doughnuts in the show field, no drugs, no underage drinking, and don’t come with a bad attitude. Bring your Friendly attitude and experience a rare chance to meet some like minded folks who live, breath, and sleep VW and Audi!!
NO FIGHTING – SERIOUSLY DRUNK FIGHTING WILL LAND YOU A CAB RIDE TO TOWN AT YOUR EXPENSE – NO KIDDING – BAD ATTITUDES, OLD BEEFS, OR GENERAL POOR BEHAVIOR WILL BE MET BY SECURITY SETTING YOU TO THE CURB AND A CAB RIDE TO TOWN. IF YOU CAN’T STAY COOL, STAY HOME!!!!
Bring SUNSCREEN, Flashlights, pop tents, sleep tents, water, food, what ever you need, but keep in mind that the small store 1 mile away will get tapped out. The next closest store is 10 miles away. Come prepared. Bring Cash money to buy things, there is poor cell service, so don’t expect to pay for things using Pay-pal or any other electronic methods.
DOGS – We would prefer you don’t bring them, but if you can’t find someone to watch them, they can come but Leashed only – one year someone actually got bit. We can’t have packs of dogs running around. Keep them leashed. We all love a great dog to accompany us with our hobbies, during camping, and in cases of great outdoor events like 40s. But clean up after them, and keep them on a leash. Thank you.
Lastly, The whole show format is not common. It relies solely on the proper behavior, moral aptitude, and common decency of the guests. For lack of better words, This is your show! Treat it like you are hosting it. Have my back, like it was your own. You know right and wrong, and you have the authority to speak up and straighten a dangerous situation out. Without proper guidance the show cannot continue in the way it has become known for. Treat this special event with care, and it will be here for you in the years to come. Thank you
