Hello and welcome to the first special edition of VW Vibe
The magazine that sets out to capture the lifestyle and spirit of life with dubs.
If you are an owner of any model of VW or just like the idea of the VW scene, then we think you’ll like this magazine. At VW Vibe, we don’t do cliques or worry about where your engine is or how you cool it – we just pull up, open a cold one and enjoy the friendship of the scene- if your dub is special to you, that’s all that matters!
And of course, the cars, campers and vans are only part of the story – what you do with your dub and how you enjoy, it is far more interesting. So if you’re hitting a weekend show in an old skool Golf project, restoring a Splitty in a mate’s lockup or trekking across Asia in a serious Syncro; we’re interested in your story.
We also like watching the trends in the VW scene, but it’s especially great to see the eclectic mix of people doing their own thing… show n’ shines are great, but the real gold can often be found in the day visitors car park on any summer weekend event.
We also like to enjoy the VW scene in context – it’s not all about this engine mod or those wheels (though honestly, we do like a cool engine mod and a smart set of wheels of course); but go to any show, brows any forum or attend any club meet, and you’ll see a whole host of related interests which share the Vdub galaxy; from American hot rods, to BMX, vintage pinup culture to retro Radio Flyers – and as for the fantastic ‘pick n’ mix’ of the vehicles themselves – from low down n’ dirty Rat lookers or the super clean Euro scene… we like a bit of everything!
We’re certain you will enjoy the fresh take on the dub scene that VW Vibe offers; and we have a superb mash-up of different vehicles and features for you to enjoy (because no one wants a picnic, with only one kind of sandwich filling right!).
So whether you’re a hardcore dub anorak, or you just happen to think VW make an okay bus to chuck your muddy mountain bike or sandy surfboard in of a weekend – hit the shuffle button and enjoy our playlist – we’re not interested in leading the scene or following the trends
– we’re just here to do our own thing and soak up the VW Vibe!
