Still as determined as ever
Volkswagen of South Africa (Pty) Ltd.
From being a TV star to surrogate mom to many orphaned cheetah cubs that come to N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia, Lucky has lived quite the life.

TATA: Wat u nie geweet het nie!
Tata is reeds ‘n dekade of twee of meer ‘n vertroude naam in Namibië. Eers deur ingevoerde vragmotors uit Indië en later die bekendstelling van ‘n reeks bakkies en motors in suidelike Afrika.

The passionate relationship (for Alfisti, at least) started 55 years ago when the original Giulia, the Tipo 105 Berlina, and its subsequent sub-types became the first Alfa model range to be built in South Africa in substantial numbers.
Butch presence and new gadgets – we test the updated Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Right, so you live in Suburbia, have a couple of kids and lead an active lifestyle. Where before a “Kombi”, some station wagon or 4×4 double-cab may have done the trick, your next automotive purchase must tick all those boxes. Stand around any respectable Namibian braai and most attendees would strongly advise Toyota’s recurrent Fortuner, but we at NamWheels would like to suggest the new Chevrolet Trailblazer…
