Gilbert’s Motor Museum Invitation

The Strathalbyn Tourism Association and volunteers invite you and your members to visit the Gilbert’s Motor Museum at 34 High Street, Strathalbyn.

As motoring enthusiasts, we are sure that you will all be impressed with the collection of vehicles on display, from bicycles through motorcycles to veteran, vintage and classic cars as well as motorsport vehicles, automobilia, garagenalia, and a substantial motoring library.

The Museum opened in early 2020, following its reimagining from an old mechanical workshop and showrooms (which were the original Gilbert Motors buildings), and almost immediately had to contend with the Covid pandemic. However, such is its popularity, that the Museum welcomed its 10,000th visitor in mid-February 2022. Visitor feedback to date has been fantastic (check out our reviews on Google, Trip Advisor and Facebook) and has spurred us (volunteers) to strive to provide even more exhibits and facilities in the future.

Strathalbyn provides a wonderful location for a Club Run, with its abundant cafes, hotels and dining options, generous parks and numerous attractions (including the High Street antique shops). Adding a visit to Gilbert’s Motor Museum to your club’s run calendar will certainly ensure your members a memorable occasion.

We have concessional rates for Club group entries (about the same as a cup of coffee!) and would look forward to offering our full services to your members including guided tours if required.

Please take the opportunity to circulate this invitation and the information in the attached background flier to your members. As motoring enthusiasts ourselves, our volunteers look forward to welcoming you to our collections and sharing our stories.

If you would like to make any enquiries please contact the Museum by phone on 0480 266098 or by email at president@strathtourism.org.au

VW Beetle Lovers on Instagram

There is an instagram page that has many images of Beetles, many quite interesting.I was looking at embedding the page on the site so new images appear but Facebook have deprecated the API to allow for this as they want to drive traffic to their site (its all about the money $$$$).In any case, you can go to Instagram and check it out yourself.

The Wolf

The Wolf Karmann Ghia. The photo was taken by Wally Tylar at the McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic in 2019.

Hot VWs

VW Beetle class 11 seems to just get bigger in the USA. Absolute opposite end of the scale compared to the 250 kph Trophy Trucks and Buggies.

PS: you need a good back to drive a Bug in an off road race.

Why Did Volkswagen Kill The Beetle?

Volkswagen is one of the world’s largest automakers. It houses brands such as Audi, Porsche, and Bentley. But perhaps its best-known vehicle is the Volkswagen Beetle. Over its entire lifespan, Volkswagen sold over 22.5 million of all three versions of the Beetle. But in July of 2019, production one of the most iconic and important cars of all time came to an end.

Rise and Fall of the Beetle

In its 81-year run, the Beetle sold over 23 million units. In 2019 the final Beetle rolled off the line in Puebla, Mexico. After eight decades, has the Volkswagen Beetle finally hit the end of the road?

Scott Keogh, Volkswagen America CEO, says "never say never."
