Zeitschrift

Club VeeDub Sydney publishes an excellent monthly magazine named ‘Zeitschrift’. This funny-sounding word (it’s pronounced ‘SITE-shrift’) is simply German for ‘magazine’. All Club members and sponsors receive a copy each month, either as a black and white printed issue or an emailed full-colour PDF.

The magazine is your forum! We welcome all letters, articles and contributions of general VW interest. We’re always looking for stories on Australian VW history, VW adventures, technical how-tos, workshop tech tips, old VW artwork, VW road tests…you get the idea. We appreciate people writing us stories about club runs they’ve been on, or other VW stuff they’ve done recently. Or you could write to us about your special VW.

We produce 12 issues per year, one each month. Each issue contains an up-to-date calendar of coming events, VW For-Sales/Wanteds (‘Marktplatz’), and all the latest VW news and articles. Marktplatz ads are free for members. To submit a For sale/Wanted in the next issue, please click here.

Close-off date for all submissions is the first Thursday of each month. The magazine is published and distributed on second Thursday of each month, arriving in members’ letterboxes or email inbox a few days before the monthly meeting.

From the first issue in 1985 until 2006 the magazine was produced with messy Gestetners and photocopiers.  We have selected hundreds of the best articles from these early years, on all VW topics, and they are available for your reading pleasure under the Old Articles page.

All issues from October 2006 have been produced as colour PDFs. Almost all are available for free downloading – just select the year you are interested in, and click on the issue to download. However the most recent three months are for Club Veedub members only.
