If you own a pre-2000 dated Volkswagen brand vehicle, get it ready and be part of Saturday’s VW Parade andamp; VW Logo day at Despatch.

“All air-cooled Beetles, Kombis, Trikes, Karmann Ghias, Fox, Caddy, Passat, Polos up to 1999 and Citi Golfs of any year are welcome,” said Hennie du Toit, who also organised the previous VW Parade andamp; VW Logo Day which was held during 2011.
