    Volks Enthusiasts Club of South Australia Inc.

    How the Club Started & to whom it owes its existence

    The Volks Enthusiasts Club was formed in August 1996. The club grew out of a desire to provide hard core VW enthusiasts with an opportunity to meet regularly to build and promote the VW scene.

    Founding Members

    The Club was instigated by Richard Newbury, Rachel Tidswell and John Jansen (together combining around 70 years of VW enthusiasm). This group was soon joined by other VW enthusiasts attracted to the concept. The club’s membership includes many people with long years of VW knowledge. This depth of experience gives the club a solid linkage into the early days when the VW ruled the world. From these foundations we have built the character and style of the Club.

    Our Cars

    We cater for revival and restoration of any VW powered vehicle - either standard or modified. Some of the members cars include: early beetles, replica Porsche Speedster kit cars, the Late Ken Virgin’s Historical Drag car (11.8 second Quarter Mile in 1976), street beetles running big motors up to 2330cc’s, various type II’s, Type III’s , Golf's, Passat's and Touareg. We are also encouraging owners of any Historic Competition VW’s to display their vehicles and thereby build interest in a precious bygone era and, more importantly, to ensure the restoration of original cars.

    Club Magazine

    A Club news letter called “Volks Enthusiasm” is also available to members. We work with other VW clubs to promote the VW marque. We regularly hold a variety of events, including: VW Convoys, Shows, Information Schools, Swap Meets and Interstate trips.

    Number 1 Member

    In honour of his energy and commitment to the brand, the Volks Enthusiasts Club has nominated the late Roy Williams as its permanent No. 1 Club Member. Roy was a close personal friend of many club members.


    Club meetings are held at 8:00pm on the first Wednesday of each month at the Austrian Club, Torrens Rd, Ovingham SA
