Well to sum up my day I finally met Phil Gruar from Dream Day Campers , ow he’s building some nice VW stuff a breath

VW WIZARD As seen on Car S.O.S.
HISTORY Where did the magic begin?

Volksmagic was started in 1992 by a few friends who had a shared interest in the VW scene and these quirky automobiles. Neil Reynolds (aka Ren), Graeme Freeman (aka Fop) and myself, Lee Southerton (aka Magic) along with the help of Mark Southerton, Steven Hodnett, Bert, Lee the Dreads and even the Sheriff was about then. Without all these great people Volksmagic would not have been born.

The laughter, fun and drunken evenings shared at Trade shows, meeting the best of people who we have come to call our VW family. After renting an industrial unit on Tat Bank Road, which became the first home for the gathering of these petrol heads. I have fond memories of driving through Black Heath with Ren and Fop in Fop’s Type 2, listening to Bohemian Rhapsody, singing at the top of our voices, feeling on top of the world, more than likely doing the beer run before a show.

All we needed was a name, what the hell should we call ourselves? I must give credit to Mark Southerton for this, as one morning all of us stroll into the cafe talking about names and Mark says “what about Volksmagic”, so we chewed it over a bacon roll and that’s it Volksmagic was born!

Over the next year or so, Fop moved on due to work commitments and to become part of The VWDRC, which is now the oldest running one make drag club in the world. His amazing Beetle known as Sick Bubblegum (named after a Rob Zombie song) and with the race number VWPro204 absolutely flies and has a fastest pass time so far of 11.7sec qtr at 112mph!

About a year later, Ren moved on to focus on supplying new parts for Volkswagens and I kept Volksmagic running with lots of help from Mark, Steve, Sheriff and the new guy, Mark Bradley (aka Brad). In the beginning we seemed to be doing trade shows almost every weekend, which although was great fun, was heavily demanding and did not enable us to concentrate on building customers dubs. So, I made a conscious decision to focus on the workshop for a few years.

We moved onto a bigger yard and workshop in Park Lane, where we set up our new HQ and this is where we remain today.

Steven Davis (aka Boz) joined the team some time later and we started back at the shows with Bus Fest (then known as Van Fest). At Bus Fest, a new group of Magicsters was in town, along with Peter Whiteside (aka Mario), Paul Hodgetts (aka Yampy), Chris Holmes (aka Dep), Darren Sanders, Dale Roberts, Drew and Tracey Wigley, Tyler Brett, Chris James (aka the Rabbiter), Mike and Bill Perry.

We took the shows by storm, with parts, salvage and sales pitch. Seems Volksmagic kind of grew up and came back! Then along came V Dubs in the Valley, which is our back to back show with Bus Fest, where we get to chill a little more, kick back and enjoy the weekend. Over the years we have been lucky enough to get our show cars featured in magazines, out on destination for adverts and filming and involved in multiple TV shows.

I must say this was heavily promoted by John Clewer (aka JC) and Simon Chadwick (aka Chad) who have both been invaluable support over the years. The classic car show at the NEC is where we get to take a couple of show cars and Steve Rea and the Association of British VW Clubs show them for the weekend; another gathering of great petrol heads. Volksmagic are official trade sponsors of Bus Fest and V Dubs in the Valley, we seem to have become a gathering of great people; associates becoming friends.

BACK TO '89 Cool dub merchandise available now.

Back to ’89 or B289 started back in 2001 with Stu Betty, Michael Leche, Alex Markille and Simon Tomlin. The first 89 display was at Bug Jam that year with 25 legendary cars taking you back in time.

Since then, 20 years have passed with me continuing from the first display with many cars found and bought into the Back to ’89 displays. The ethos being that the car needs to be well known on the show circuit from the 80s to the mid 2000’s.

Highlights in those two decades has been the EBI B289 display, sponsoring and making the California Prado 80’s Back to 89 trophy given out at the end of the weekend. Multiple magazine features, TV and radio interviews has helped spread the word. Including the Volksworld Vaults with 2 years of features.
