Kurt Bogholz firmly believes that if you’re going to register a VW then make sure you get your money’s worth with a vehicle that can go anywhere. This philosophy was born of 4WD parentage, with Kurt’s mum and dad always taking the family away on numerous offroad adventures. In their retirement and on their own, Kurt’s parent’s adventures continued, although slightly more bitumen orientated with a Toyota Coaster bus taking them around Australia. When home between journeys, though, they scooted around in a yellow Meyers Manx buggy, which of course Kurt and his brother Gunter were left to play with when their parents hit the open road again - the brother’s love affair with buggies had begun.
When Kurt moved out of home and up to Port Douglas he accumulated his own Manx stash, collecting 8 buggies in the 8 years he lived in the tropical north. Eventually, he shifted to the Gold Coast (buggies in tow) and shortly after he and Gunter teamed up and bought the VW business VolksMod from Darrel Yates.


VW Magazine Australia

VWMA is an Australian owned and published enthusiasts magazine serving both the aircooled and watercooled Volkswagen scene nationally. Published quarterly (Feb, May, Aug, Nov), the magazine is available through newsagents Australia wide or via subscription, and covers every aspect of the hobby, from the very early models through to the latest innovations, motorsport, offroad, kit, custom, books, toys and shows. If it doesn't appear in VWMA then it isn't VW related.

Now in its seventh year, VWMA also hosts two drag racing weekends, sponsors a variety of VW shows, and supports events across the country. Printed and distributed by Australian companies, VWMA is also fortunate to have access to a talented pool of home based VW photojournalists and print/web technicians, who work with VWMA to produce quality VW entertainment each issue. And in 2011, the magazine's website has evolved to encompass the online and portable information revolution with the inclusion of additional media content to enrich the printed reading experience.
