    CVA History Snippets

    Have you ever read the History of the Connecticut VW Association and how we came to be? Our first member, Tom Shoemaker was given the honorary CVA membership number 1, in recognition of his tremendous inspiration and enthusiasm. Being an enthusiastic person means you have a strong passion, energy, and excitement for the things you do and the experiences you have, whether it's in your personal or professional life. It is that strong passion we have for our Volkswagens, Audi, Porsche, all cars, that brings us still together, after 38 year (since 1985) as one big united family. We continue too see our family grow, and sadly some have passed away, but it all began for the love for one little car. Read the rest of the story here. About Us
