VW’s Beetle Pageant 2019

The Volkswagen Beetle Owners’ Club will hold a Beetle Pageant 2019 on Sunday, August 18.

The event will bring together an array of Volkswagen Beetles which would comprise the very early imports, the rare ‘Split Screen’ Beetles that will be displayed together with the renowned Oval Beetle that won the hearts of many and brought about fame for VW in the fifties.

The line-up will also include the next generation Sloping Lamp Beetles which continued to flourish up to the eve of import restrictions, and will be followed with the unrivalled VW1300 models and the much sought after 1302 and 1303 Bugs that will add colour to the VW Vans, the Karman Ghias that will be on display at Excel World at Darley Road, Colombo 10.

This will be an opportunity for the members who would be given a slot to sell any VW spare parts or VW related Items at the event, while having their Bugs on display, giving it a ‘Swap Meet’ ambience which is common at most international motoring events of this nature. The members are due to arrive by 9.30 a.m. and the cars would be on display by 10.00 a.m. There will also be a demonstration of the general maintenance of the VW Beetle by an expert with over 40 years of experience, in ‘keeping the legend alive’. This will be followed by a fellowship lunch and the awards ceremony.
