HEADS were turning on Sunday when a convoy of VW Golf 1 enthusiasts drove past Port Shepstone, St Michaels­, Margate and Gamalakhe.
Members of the VW Golf G1 Club crew celebrated the launch of the club, formed by Francis Mkhanya and Philani Maphumulo.
Maphumulo said the aim of the group is to show the passion they have for these legendary cars, which never go out of fashion.

On Sunday the club had its official launch party at St Michaels beach.

Maphumulo said the club is for anyone who owns a Golf 1.

“We are reaching out to the entire South Coast - whoever owns a Golf 1 must join our club,” he said.

Members pay R100 a month subscription, which will be used towards the club’s charity donations and sponsorships, and everyone is welcome to join.

“If you drive a Golf 1 that makes you a member - others can tag along and be part of the celebrations.”
