This site is created for all you air cooled enthusiasts who cannot resist the feeling that you get when cruising along endless open roads with the wind blowing through your hair. Whether this is a daily habit or a weekend addiction, nothing can stop you from enjoying one of the world’s unrivaled wonders.

Our aim is to bring the stories behind as many of these beauties as possible for everyone to enjoy and dream about, and also to capture the history behind as many of these cars as possible in South Africa, as well as around the world. We would love to hear from our international friends, as we all share the same passion.

Simply Werner is a section where you’ll find priceless information about your air cooled wonder. It will mainly feature tips on VW beetles, for the simple reason that my friend Werner Alker is the best at what he does, and that is to better the beetle. It is impossible to know it all and that’s why we’re here, to learn. This, however, does not mean that you cannot ask questions about your pride and joy, even if it has a different face. We would like to help and most likely will have an answer, doesn’t matter what make or model you drive.
