They find me!

The story of this one is that when I had a proper job (with an insurance company) I used to arrive home to find VW parts on the drive.. Some of them I found out where they were from and others I didnt have a clue... there were always VWs on the drive and I always drove air cooled to work...

Last week I got a message via an old VW shop that I know that an old customer of theirs had a '61 Beetle to sell.. turned out he lives 1/2 a mile from my old house... has owned splits, Beetles bays etc... and used to put VW parts on my drive... I didnt know him... I might have bumped into him in the VW shop but thats it..

He had tracked me down over 8 years later and wanted me to dig it out and buy it... so I did... Its a funny world!

He is going to lower it so it is unlikely to be seen here again..



But today I collected this South Aftican Strange one...

They are oddballs. A friend had one many years ago. King Link pin chassis 1600 engine narrow shoes on the drum brakes. Also has this got the odd rear light mounts and remote reflectors on the wings?

The most interesting modern mixes for me are the 1980s Brazilian Beetles. They have the pre65 small window bodies with all the modern stuff fitted.
1956 VW Beetle, 1962 Morris Minor, 1968 VW Beetle (Old Blue), 1972 Morris Mini, 2005 MGTF

Blue, blue, Electric Blue, that's the colour of Old Blue!
