JFX 892 was my Black '56 Oval. I took it to Action '82. I'd love to see the pictire of it!

It is now owned by a member of the Historic VW Club but I haven't seen it since I sold it in 1983...

I would like to add to this list:

VVS 203 - '56 Standard Oval in olive drab, see the thread Army Oval

I managed to track down the second and third owner, but have not found the current owner yet. Who knows where VVS 203 is today?

Thanks!

I believe ULN 444 is still in West London. TYJ 970 is in E.Sussex (I drove past it this afternoon!!!). XDD 521 was purchased in recent years and slammed (search RW forum for more details). Don't know where MTR 900 is now, but I remember the story about it being 'unrestored' as being a bit questionable at the time. I think Chris Clarke still has MCG 120.

ULN 444 used to belong to a man called Anthony Ripley who lived in Chiswick, West London. That, I remember from around 1991/92 as I lived close by at the time.
MTR 900 belonged to Alf Lilley in Stoke on Trent, again around the early 90s.
MCG 120 was a homemade Chris Clarke RHD conversion.

It's totally true Rich. I remember 20 odd years ago when Dave Cantle from the HVWOC found it. It really was a never driven in winter, never restored, never welded and never repainted car.

Always remember Dave saying he bought it from the owner's son who was never allowed in the car with his shoes on. The owner kept a record of every journey made, every time he put petrol in it and so on and it was so original the paint had been taken down to the primer near the Wolfsburg crest where the owner had polished it so much.

Of course it wouldn't be done today but for me it was ruined after Dave sold it - what with the addition of whitewalls, fender skirts, other accessories and I believe some repainting.

This one was built by John Devereux from SCS fame in Bournemouth. It made the trip to Camberg in '91 and was recently seen in the car park at either Plymfest or Run to the Sun - can't remember which now in the same condition as when John built it.

That's because, if my memory serves me well, some nasty jealous concours entrant at VW action scratched the whole side of the car in revenge, when they didn't win. I think it was around 1992. I remember seeing the damage, it was terrible. Alf Lilley was gutted and was never to be seen again with the car. It probably changed ownership after that.

Julian

Thanks for posting that picture, despite JFX 892 (Beaky) being my first car, I took very few pictures of it so it's great to see a new one appear nearly 30 years later! Looking at it now, it's difficult to believe that I used to drive it up and down the M1 everyday, in and out of London loaded with cable and tools (I was an electrician). It was a great car and I was sorry to part with it but let it go in order to buy a very smart '73 1300, which I duly wrote off about a month later on the A600 just south of Bedford.

Beaky is now owned by a member of the HVWOC, but I haven't been able to contact him so have no idea what shape it is now in.

Maybe one day we'll meet again...

Mike

ps. that's me at the wheel!
