V-Dubs Harvard Drive 

  • DATE: June 22
  • LOCATION: Grasslands Flying Club, Sesmylspruit Rd, Mooiplaats 355-Jr, Centurion

V-Dubs Harvard Drive will be celebrating the car that changed the world, on the day that it is internationally recognised. Of course, we are talking about the VW Beetle.

This car show welcomes other classic cars, not just the Beetle, so everyone is welcome to attend. There will also be a Harvard aircraft on display where you can grab some memorable photos with your loved ones and friends. With food stalls, entertainment and a ton of memorabilia to purchase, this is guaranteed to be one for the books – especially considering that ticket prices are just R10.
