COFFEE & CARS MEET

If you are looking for the most laid back, relaxed and friendly car meet in the country, you’ve found it. Built on the great vibe of our original monthly meet, Coffee & Cars has truly become one of the friendliest car meets in the country. It’s just like a visit to your local pub.

Coffee & Cars welcomes owners of all makes and models of vehicles. In fact, Coffee & Cars is really more about the people and less about what they turn up in.

ABOUT VAGINGIT

  • DEFINITIONVagingit, a term derived from “ragging it” the urban slang for thrashing a car. Vagingit has often caused amusement for it similarity to the name given to ladies parts. Alas, we are all children at heart.
  • A LITTLE HISTORYVagingit was established in 2005, as a local place for Volkswagen enthusiast to hang out in the south east of England. At the time, the local vw scene was very cliquey and mainly catered for the air cooled enthusiast. As a collective of mainly water cooled Volkswagen owners, we didn’t really fit in and so we decided to do something about it.
  • OUR VISIONStarting out small, we laid out the foundations of the place we wanted to call home. A place where we could all chill out and call our own. A place where like minded people could get together and share a passion. A place where it didn’t matter what you drove, or how much it cost. A place to showcase the efforts of many hours of late night tinkering and a place to make life long friendships.
  • OUR PRINCIPLESWe have always worked on the simple principle that if you treat others as you would wish to be treated, then in turn you will also be treated the same way. As long as you can follow this simple principle, you will find a place here and fit in.
  • OUR COMMUNITY

    We are an eclectic mix of individuals, from various different backgrounds who share one thing in common, petrol runs through our veins. We have always strived to make our community feel like a visit to the local pub where everyone knows each other and feels at ease.

    We are not a car club as such, nor do we pretend to be one. You will not find stuffy committees here, nor will you find endless rules that must be obeyed.

    We set out to meet people in our local community and vagingit’s monthly meet became the physical meeting place to catch up with friends and admire the handy work of our fellow car enthusiasts. In 2012, our monthly meet morphed in to the fortnightly Coffee & Cars meet we still enjoy today.

    The Coffee & Cars meet is the embodiment of our vision, principles and community. It’s popularity and brotherhood never ceases to amaze us.

    This atmosphere has transcended into our online forum, where our users gather to put the world to rights and on occasion talk about cars.

  • OUR FUTUREWe are looking to the future with great enthusiasm and optimism. We will become more diverse in our subject matter, so as to attract a wider audience. We will deliver our community to them via multiple platforms. We will become more in tune and focused on our local automotive community and support our local shows, whilst still upholding our core vision and principles.

MISSION STATEMENT

Vagingit’s mission is to provide a relaxed & friendly community for Volkswagen Audi Group enthusiast in the South East of England.
