Speaking from experience, there is nothing quite like an old Volkswagen. The way the engine sounds, the shining chrome, the smell when you open the 'heater'.

Volkswagen Beetle, Volksfest Adelaide 2014
My old Beetle nicknamed Alice Cooper


Those of you reading this who have owned one of these great old cars probably know what I'm talking about.

Whether you are a Volkswagen owner or just an admirer; Volksfest 2014 is the perfect opportunity to meet with like minded people, enjoy live music and maybe even go for a ride on the Popeye.

On 30 November 2014, Volkswagen's new and old will gather at Elder Park from 8am to 4pm for the show and shine.

Do the kids love old cars? This is a great chance to get them out in the sunshine and away from anything with a touchscreen for the day.

Come along, share a story or two with the owners of the cars on display and maybe make some new friends.

Sure, if too many Beetles are running at once you might not be able to hear what your new friend is saying, but it's all part of the experience... yes, really, it is.

Don't think you have to run out and buy a Volkswagen to come along and enjoy the sights and sounds... everyone is welcome - although if you are looking for an excuse to buy one, here it is!

Writer's note: be sure to ration your 'punch buggy' moments; Volksfest runs all day - you don't want to go home sore!
