JCT600 Volkswagen York dealership has held a mini celebration to show appreciation for customer, Mrs Wilson, who has been buying Volkswagen cars from the site for the past 50 years!
Mrs Wilson and her late husband bought a Beetle 1200 from the York dealership (North Riding Garage, York) in the summer of 1967, paying five hundred and eighty five pounds! Since then the family have bought a number of other Volkswagen cars including another Beetle, 3 Golfs (the first which is pictured here), 10 Polos and 1 Audi. Mrs Wilson’s current Volkswagen is a Polo TSI R Line.
Head of Business, Andrew Exon who joined the team at VW York in inviting Mrs Wilson along to their dealership earlier this week for a mini celebration, commented, “When I first heard Mrs Wilson’s story I wanted to celebrate the milestone with her in some way. We invited her along to the showroom for a mini celebration of her 50 years with Volkswagen York! We hope she enjoyed her visit and hope to see her again very soon – although I’m almost certain we will!
Mrs Wilson added: “A huge thank you for taking the time, effort and thought in setting up such a memorable celebration of my 50 years of VW cars. I really enjoyed it, and so did Chris. Thank you and your team so much for the event and all the fabulous gifts. I will remember the afternoon for a long time to come (and so will the car!)”
