This display of vintage Volkswagen Beetles and Kombis was in support of the 23rd Ipoh City Day celebrations. Although the celebrations are held over three days this weekend, these vehicles were on display this morning only.
I took the opportunity to take some photos of the vehicles even though there were only about fifteen vehicles (Beetles and Kombis) in total. I understand that most of these owners are based in Ipoh but it’s kind of weird that I hardly see these cars on the road.
The owners told me that they have just returned from an expedition to the East Coast. Wow, isn’t it amazing? Old cars are still roadworthy as long as they are maintained! And some passionate owners will not hesitate splashing RM40K – RM60K to keep their vehicles in pristine condition!
