“Meet the Beetles”

(George) - The iconic Volkswagen Beetle will have a special place at the 2018 George Old Car Show, proudly driven by Oakhurst Insurance Co, which takes place on 10 – 11 February.

The AutoPavilion, Volkswagen’s museum and heritage Centre in Uitenhage, will display five of its unique Beetles in their “Meet the Beetles” exhibition at the show, the 22nd presented by the Southern Cape Old Car Club (SCOCC).

The Beetle, with its well-earned title of Car of the 20th Century, was a powerful driver of Germany’s Economic Miracle in the aftermath of World War II.

Volkswagen, the company, and the Beetle with its peculiar shape, owe their survival and phenomenal growth to Major Ivan Hirst, a British Army officer and engineer who helped revive Volkswagen from a single factory in Wolfsburg, Germany to a major post-war automotive manufacturer.

In the British Major Hirst lies the connection of the Meet the Beetles exhibition to the special exhibition of some 40 vehicles of British manufacture at the 2018 George Old Car show.

1935 Chev Phaeton – 27 years to complete restoration

George – Die 2018 George Oumotorskou, ondersteun deur Oakhurst Versekeringsmaatskappy, vind plaas op 10 – 11 Februarie.

Die spesiale uitstalling by die 22ste motorskou, wat deur die Suid-Kaap Oumotorklub aangebied word, fokus op voertuie wat in Groot Britanje vervaardig is.

Volkswagen se AutoPavilion- museum, stal ook vyf beroemde Beetles onder die titel Meet the Beetles uit. Hierdie Beetles roep ‘n Britse offisier, Majoor Ivan Hirst, in herinnering. Hirst het die ikoniese Duitse motor na die Tweede Wereldoorlog van vergetelheid gered, en die uitstalling laat reg geskied aan die uitstalling van Brits-vervaardigde voertuie.

Die grootste versameling Ford-motors wat voor 1930 vervaardig is, sal ook vir die eerste keer uitgestal word, naas ‘n groot verskeidenheid ander Noag- en veteraanmotors wat uit daardie glansryke era dateer. Dan is daar ook nog veteraan trekkers en plaastoerusting, statiese enjins, motorfietse uit toeka se dae, meer as 5 000 miniatuur modelmotortjies, en voertuie wat deur handelaars van nuwe motors uitgestal word.

Een so ‘n veteraanmotor is Japie Beyers se 1935 Chevrolet Phaeton, wat in al sy glorie tydens die skou uitgestal sal word sedert hy die voertuig 27 jaar gelede present gekry het.
