94 AXU is painted Sand Beige now and riding around with the rear lights half way up the rear wings. The infamous Halifax Beetles owned it at one point in the 1990s. Not sure who owns it now, but I don't think that it's John Miller. Maybe he'll pop into this thread and confirm this?
47 Beetle, 56 UK Karmann Cabriolet, 56 UK Beetle, 57 UK Type 2, 59 UK Beetle, 66 UK Fastback.
