Video > VW’s ‘The People’s Film’

Tags: videos, the people's film, vw, volkswagen, advertising, brent shaw

I don't watch a huge amount of television, but I spotted this cool advertisement from Volkswagen New Zealand and thought it was worth sharing. The footage was supplied by VW fans from all over New Zealand, and features proud owners driving their early Beetles, Kombis and Karmann Ghias, as well as late model vehicles like the Amarok, Tiguan and Golf. I recognised a few cars from various shows and motoring events that I've been to, and I imagine it would have been a real buzz for the owners to spot their pride and joy on nationwide telly. There's even a list of the owners and their cars on the VW website...

I've just come across this very interesting and highly customised Beetle called 'Das Speedster' on Stanceworks. The fabrication, engine choice and final result compared to what it started out as is quite jaw dropping...

Event > SO 2012

With the great success of last years Stance-Off event, the guys from VASK (VW Audi SportKlub of NZ) put together yet another flawless day on the 26th of February, dubbed ‘SO 2012′. The decision this year to include a ‘Best Of The Rest’ award to a vehicle not otherwise affiliated with the VASK group saw a whole fleet of unique rides make an appearance.

Although it was the biggest yet, it was hard to estimate the number of people who attended as a lot came and went throughout the day. All I can say is both the quality and quantity of slammed-out work’s of art at SO 2012 was a great...

The 18th National Classic Car and Hot Rod Festival ran on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of January 2012, and this was the first time that I had been to this event. We left Hamilton bright and early on Saturday morning, and arrived at the show at around 8.30am. We were greeted with fine weather, and the largest collection of classic cars and hot rods that I have ever seen in one place.



While most cars were obviously American, like this beautiful 1956 Chevrolet Belair...



...some were a mix of British and American, like this 1963 Ford Cortina, powered by a...
