Victoria Square was bustling last Saturday as the VW Public Show and Shine display brought a feast of German engineering to town.

As part of the 2018 Qualitat Volkswagen Nationals held over Easter, more than 200 classic vehicles converged on Cambridge for a public show and judging. VW owners and enthusiasts travelled from around the country for the event, which was followed by a prizegiving dinner and trophy presentation for the winners, which were judged according to model and year of manufacture.

On Sunday, the vehicles went on a mass cruise from Karapiro Domain over to Matamata to conclude the event, which was hosted by the Auckland VW Owners’ Club with assistance from the Waikato VW Club.
