A chance meeting between Oliver Attard and Colin Micallef in mid-1997 eventually led to the formation of the V-Dubs Club (Malta).
Oliver and Colin realised that, amongst other things, they shared a common vision, that of setting up a club for VW enthusiasts in Malta. So a first meeting for VW owners was held, ten VW Golfs got together. Another meeting, two months later followed. This time round, the meeting mainly featured air-cooled VWs. The meeting was held in Ta’ Qali, in collaboration with Sedqa, the local agency against drug abuse. Some 48 cars turned up, most of which expressed their interest in joining a VW club.
