KOMBINED VW OWNER’S CLUB OF WELLINGTON
Kombined VW Owner’s Club of Wellington started life as a Kombi club in February 1988, when a couple of Wellington blokes with Kombis started to organise some outings for the local Kombi owners. Over the years the club has grown to include all air-cooled VW’s - and in fact any VW enthusiast is welcome. Still active today, the club is going through a resurgence and now has a great mix of classic VWs in the membership with as many Beetles as Kombis, and the odd beach buggy and 356 replica as well. With a regular club night once a month, and normally at least one organised event a month - with recent events like movies (with dubs in), camp outs, technical paint care sessions, and an excellent annual rally.
KVWOC is run pretty informally and there is a great mix of new and old - both in age and in terms of the VW scene. Contact email@example.com for more info.
