Welcome To The NBOC
The NBOC is Northern Irelands only aircooled VW Club, for all VW Beetles, Buses, Ghias, Buggies etc. New Beetles, water cooled campers and classic VWs are all welcome too as we are all about the dubs. From small beginnings over a decade ago the club has grown to a healthy membership of 100 dubbers with a huge variety of vehicles regularly seen at our many shows and runs throughout the whole year.
In the late 1990s aircooled VW owners had little contact outside of the monthly read VW magazines. There was the occasional show, not many people knew each other or had a regular chance to meet. After attending a couple of events in summer 1999 four Bug owners who were relative strangers to each other all had the same idea of changing this and trying to start up a club to help keep VWs alive and kicking well into the 21st century.
We have events almost every month thoughout spring and summer, from camp outs, shows and cruises across the whole of the north so there's something for everyone! Our members range from teenagers not long through their test and young families to those who drove them new when you didn't need a driving test, all sharing a common interest.
