Volkswagen celebrates Transporter's 60th birthday
Tuesday, September 11, 2007
Scheduled to take place from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 October, the festivities will include a convoy of historic Transporters, a vast display of Transporters from every decade and an open-air cinema with films featuring VW Transporter campers.
It's been 60 years since the first Transporter was designed and Volkswagen is celebrating the fact with a huge international celebration at Germany's Hanover exhibition centre, not far from the VW production line.
Prizes will be awarded for various categories of Transporter, including the oldest and the most attractive. A weekend ticket costs £17.50 per vehicle and there will be over 3,000 parking spaces.
