As an antidote to the current post '67 debate, I thought it might be interesting to set up an even less tolerant thread :lol:

You can post anything you like - old photos, new photos, accessories, stuff you own (for extra brownie points) or stuff you've seen, but it all has to be strictly pre '49...

Pre '50 makes more sense '49 being a forties car. And I won't be able to show off my '49:cry:

This is the only old VW part I have :lol: .

Bought this engine as a parts donor for my '53 ovals' engine thinking it was an early '50s unit, so was more than happy when clearing all the muck away from around the dynamo pedestal to find the date 21.3.47 there :d .
Yes it has a lot of later peripherals , but the case, fanshroud, heads and dizzy all appear to be '47 or older so I'm not complaining.

In reality, 1950 is the Final Year of the 40ies decade.

Yes, that is correct Mike, 1-10 (1941-1950) is how it works. Trouble is we're getting near to pre '53 which is what we've go already:?

No pre March '48 would be better – all those with the extra ribs inside under the split window. All the splits thereafter have the later style.:wink:

Yes one shouldn't post other user's cars. And of course as Rob has said, must be before '49:lol:
