Volkswagen Classic at the May Beetle Meeting 2017

Bubbling boxer engines, Beetles, Bullis and plenty of rare models: the 34th outing of the traditional May Beetle Meeting on 1 May once again wowed around 15,000 fans of classic Volkswagen models this year. In bright sunshine, approximately 3,500 air-cooled treasures from all over Europe rolled up onto the eastern car park of the exhibition grounds; a further 5,000 water-cooled Volkswagen classics occupied the neighbouring areas. The one-day event in the state capital of Lower Saxony not only heralded the main 2017 season, but also maintained the cult that has grown around the Beetles, Bullis and other classics over the course of the decades.
