Our History!

501c3 Non-Profit VW Car Club 

Other than promoting the life extension of these amazing cars and promoting the family like environment in the Air-Cooled community we are here to give back. 

Giving away scholarships for Automotive Students has been our staple donation every year. 

This is made possible by donors, sponsors and volunteers that help put on our annual SDAC Fiesta Car Show! It is an amazing show like no other where we raise funds for these scholarships. 

We also organize and participate in other charity work to include, toy and food drives, helping those in need and donating to other charitable organizations.

San Diego Air Cooled inc.

San Diego Air Cooled (SDAC) was once the Tijuana VOLKSWAGEN Air Cooled Car Club​.
Founded in 2002, the TJ VW Air Cooled Car Club was the premier VW club in the Mexican border town. In 2006, the TJ VW Air Cooled Car club moved its home to sunny San Diego and became the San Diego Air Cooled VW Club.  We've been growing ever since. 

Since its early years SDAC has always made an effort to give back to the community. In 2020 SDAC officially became a 501c3 non-profit organization in the state of California.

​Today we continue our work to give back by organizing shows, cruises, toy runs, food drives and more to provide scholarships to Automotive students in the community.
