The Historic VW Club had a display plot at this show today and achieved considerable success in the trophy stakes.
Best Beetle - 1956 Oval
Highly Commended Beetle - 1958 Deluxe
Best post '67 Beetle - 1976 South African 1600cc (Owned by a club member)
Best Air Cooled Display Stand
The most shocking part of the day came at the very end when they held the prize ticket draw based on the pre-paid entries and my ticket was drawn as the winner!
The prize was a lowered 1970 1300cc Deluxe beetle with 12 months MoT but with a few scabby paintwork/rust issues!!
So I went to the show this morning with a 1960 Standard and came home with a 1960 Standard and a 1970 1300 Deluxe. Luckily my passenger was able to drive the prize home.
The question now arises - what to do with it? After a few hours thought, a drive in it and a quick look around it I think the answer is a quick smarten up, raise the adjustable front beam (all new to me!) and then sell it to raise more funds for the ongoing '51 restoration.
Strange how some days work out!
