Business Information




Manimach's owner, Pieter Maree, souped-up his first VW when he was in high school. It was a cherry-red, 1972 VW Beetle that belonged to an old flame. The story goes that Pieter took one look at the old Volksie and had an epiphany that resulted in a total rebuild and remodelling project. The result was a sexy baja-bug in three shades of purple, powered by a whole lot mechanical ‘oomph’ and the rest, as they say, is history!
