Westrand Car Show -1978 VW Beetle

1978 Volkswagen Beetle

On 30 July 2003, 65 years after its original launch, the last Volkswagen Beetle, nicknamed “El Rey” which is Spanish for “The King” after a legendary Mexican song by José Alfredo Jiménez –  rolled off the production line in Puebla, Mexico. It was the 21,529, 464th Beetle ever built and it is said that it was delivered to the company’s museum in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Franco Posthumus has a 1978 Version of the iconic Beetle and he will be one of the proud owners showing off his wheels on 31 August 2019 at Dr. Havinga School. Join Him on Saturday and find out what it means to own a legend.

There’s a 1972 Beetle entered for 2019 – you can see it here

There will be food in abundance with the now famous Tea Garden, Cakes and Pudding stand, Worsrolletjies and Footlongs Stall, Rib and Beef Burger Stall, Chip and Dip, Curry and Rice, Jaffles and of course Pannekoek for Africa.

We have lined up some exciting stuff for the young people. Four man gyroscopes and other quite indescribable equipment – you will have to see for yourself AND Ruhan Dutoit and Heidi will both be entertaining us during the course of the day.
