Photo of the week #70 – I moved home last week to a small village near Brackley, and my poor old 1955 Oval Window VW Beetle had to spend a few days outside on the drive while we sorted out everything in the garage. With heavy snow-falls over most of last weekend, I think this may have been the worst weather that this old timer has faced since it’s been in this country – certainly since I’ve owned it! But as it originally came from Sweden, it may be a nice reminder of the weather it had to face when it started it’s life. This photograph was taken on my iPhone 5.

Photo of the week #67 – I spent last Saturday in Towcester and spotted this 1957 right hand drive oval-window beetle parked up at the side of the road. Original, Early, Right hand drive, UK-supplied Volkswagens are now few and far between and this early example looked fairly original, apart from being a bit closer to the ground on some polished Empie 5s! This shot was taken on my iPhone 5.

IMG_7697_666x999Photo of the week #66 – A rare standard model sunroof oval VW pictured at DubFreeze. These basic, no-frills beetles have little, if any chrome work, cable-brakes, a minimal headlining and the front seats are bolted to the floor and can be adjusted by loosening two wing-nuts below each seat! They also have a three-spoke steering wheel similar to the early standard split window models.
