The VW captured its image of the anti-establishment and an alternative answer to car culture back in the 1960’s Californian surf scene, and from that point the reputation stuck and the iconic image of classic or custom VWs has to evolve and adopt many guises, from a Rat look early Beetle to a high spec Euro-stanced T5 – yet one theme is ever present… it’s a VW and thus celebrates the ethos of being that bit different… that bit cooler than the average bear!
So if you have to keep it essentially air-cooled, or like the idea of a Bay window bus, but the budget of a T4, then we speak your language. And whether you spend every weekend polishing your VW or throwing sandy surfboards or muddy mountain bikes into it, or you’re the family who simply loves getting out and camping, be it at the beach or a VW show… then this magazine is for you!
Driving, owning or simply just enjoying the VW scene is not about status symbols, but about state of mind. With later incarnations of VWs taking on a heritage all of their own to sit along side the old skool classics, the galaxy of VW models and types is as varied as the individuals who drive and use them, but all share the spirit of fun and adventure that comes part and parcel to the VW scene and it’s many cousin interests, including exploring the great outdoors from inland odysseys to shoreline adventures to simply chilling at show, with a Radio Flyer full of cold ones and a classic cycle propped against the motor… if you like the v-dub culture, then you’ll love VWVibe!
