Hi Andy,

I can't get the last picture to become larger, any tips?

Is that John Forbes' place in Edinburgh? Despite being unwell of late, John's still on the scene, although I believe the garage may be closed now. He sold off a lot of very useful parts a few years ago, and still has a stall at the Scottish VW festival at Biggar each year.

When the show used to be at Doune, near Stirling, he'd bring along a lot of cars, a nice 1303 cabrio that looked to have wooden running boards, a 1966 1300 Beetle, the "That's Life" '59 Beetle, and 109 TOD, a beautiful Samba Bus, which appeared briefly in a whisky advert.

John remains one of the real characters on the scene up here.:beer:

Gavin.

I seem to recall that John told me this year at Volksfling that he'd vacated the premises because the land was to be used to build new halls of residence for Edinburgh University.

I thought John had retired? And his head mechanic had bought the business from him? :?

Yes John has retired but perhaps the business has relocated to new premises with the new guy. Or perhaps John was referring to storage premises when he talked about the land being sold????

I know that his chief mechanic had started up in business for himself, but I've no idea where, or if he's using the Meadow Lane premises.

Andy, both pictures were fine, it's just when I click on them, they come up 'thumbnail size', and I don't know how to enlarge them. Any tips Rob?

Dave, I thought that was my garage, (I wish....,!), it's got unfinished cars in it too!!:rofl:

Yep, sure is George. Just remind me, how many vintage VWs are in that big triple garage of yours (finished OR unfinished)? :wink:
