New Dimensions Charity Car Show 2001
By: Jamie Vondruska & Steve Sherwood

This year's New Dimensions Charity Car Show was an standout success with 296 entrants in the show itself and some of California's finest Volkswagen and Audi rolling iron in force.

The festivities started on Saturday the day before the show with New Dimensions annual sale at their headquarters. Numerous organized groups of show goers from various remote points around California convoyed to New Dimensions on Saturday, with some groups of cars totaling more than 50. Waiting for them was Tim Hildebrand, the owner of New Dimensions and his crack staff that were knee deep helping customers find the parts they needed and helping get registrations out to all those that pre-registered for the car show the next day. Tim rolled out the red carpet and had entertainment and food and drink on hand for all that attended. A mobile detail shop was also on hand to help people get their cars detailed and cleaned from the long trips many people made to get to New Dimensions.

This year's show was held at Moffett Airfield which is owned and operated by NASA. The show itself took place in and around the old blimp hanger on the grounds. This old hanger was quite a site and easily contained all the vendors from this year's show. Outside the hanger sat close to 300 Volkswagens and Audis that took part in the car show, every car a beautiful site. There was live music and plenty of food and drink to go around. Most importantly, the New Dimensions show helps support the Second Harvest Food Bank with loads of food that is contributed by those that attend the show.

The ND Charity Car Show has become the premiere Northern California Volkswagen and Audi show. If you have chance to catch it next year, be sure not to miss it.
