Last month, approximately on 21/11/15, with loves from one of our most solid car enthusiasts, Volkswagen Club Yogyakarta has been successfully held an International level event called by Yogyakarta Volkswagen Festival 2015. This second event was held on Jogja Expo Center (JEC) with thousands and thousands of cars and people enlivened this glorious heaven for Volkswagen enthusiasts. Slightly different from their first previous event, this event turned out well and attracts not only a car enthusiasts but also local people as well. With the tremendous support and enthusiasm from many enthusiasts around the world, we believe that it has become an event where people will always wait to debut a build they’ve been working on in secrecy for years on their Volkswagen in the future time.
Honestly, about 85% of the cars that you encounter at the show are far from the glamorous social media exposures, are they bad? Big No. If you’re looking for all new cars every year on the show, bagged, shiny coating paint, deep staggered wheels, then you’re going to the wrong event because it just doesn’t make sense to have all new classic Volkswagen vehicle builds at an event that promotes timelessness. Yogyakarta Volkswagen Festival is just more of an event where you get to enjoy these meticulously maintained cars because they only come out maybe once or twice a year. The owners get to get together and catch-up with one another and the younger enthusiasts who are coming up in the community get to appreciate the older generation. Sure a bulk of the cars are the same annually but the small percentage of new cars always tend to be pretty spectacular. Then those cars make a return and then they get accepted into this unspoken fraternity and become a part of the mix every year. As a classic car culture fanatic, this show is tailor-made for people who were appraised classic more than anything. We get excited when our new brother Vitto Savero, who lived in Yogyakarta had time to pressing his shutter out of this event.
Mr. Tjahjo Widjojono as a head of this event had successfully inviting Mr. Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono to start this event. Not only as car show, numerous activities like the official announcement of Asean Volkswagen Club, Indonesian record conferments to the “The Longer Bus VW T1”, die cast competition, and display show it self. Lots of interesting booths such as Club Star, Rare VW Display, Show and Shine, Volkswagen Limbo Competition,Trade Stand, Combo Stand, and the most interesting Classic foodtruck that serve a traditional Indonesian food on their classic rides. The organizer of this event hopes that the next event will have bigger stance and presence for Yogyakarta as one of the best tourism object in Indonesia. Mr. Tjahjo Widjojono also hoping that their creativity and loves on Volkswagen car could be heard and grabbed the international attention out there. As a media, we believe that this kind of event should be broader in the next few years.Now check tons of photos from Vitto Savero below, and make sure you stay on updates on the next event.
