      Love it. Just like our Flossie. What colour was it?

      Gosh that brings back memories. I remember my father had two at one point. I can picture them parked in the drive. I have seen one on the road some years back.

        I’d love to get another just for fun!

        This one found in a garage. It hadn’t been driven for two years! My father got it started and I drove it home! It cost £70 to get it through an MOT!

      At least it looks like the number plate is still out there!

        I hope it is with the car. So often the plate is sold!

        Yes I agree. I broke down once and a passer by whacked the engine with his walking stick and I was up and running again.

          I love the methods of getting it working again! That would never happen with a hybrid!! I had a black VW beetle as my first car with a number plate that would have bee worth thousands now , I really should have kept that plate!!

          Yes but it’s lovely when cars are left original. I love the Beetle, I’ve had a couple VW campers! One was a bay window type! So much fun!

          That sounds a really unusual one Sean, never seen one that I remember like that. Did you get photos of those as well?

          I had 3 Beetles over 15ish years, last was a LHD Jeans Beetle with denim seat covers! Happy days except changing engine oil every 1500 miles! Manual said 3000 but the enthusiasts said 1500!

      No alas not. It was the 1970s version. Westfalia.

      In those days of no seat belts of course, the kids could pile in the back too and sit waving at the car behind!

      Scary thought with no seat belts , The way my uncle drove his car , whilst trying to roll a cigarette at the same time, I am stunned I am still sitting here talking to you lot!

      My dad had one when I was 12 (1960). Used to polish it every week to keep the woodwork in good order.

      I have a friend who has a 1960 Morris Minor saloon. She has the nickname ‘Daisy’ as she is Olde English White in colour. The Morris Minor and Traveller is still a popular classic. There are serveral active (and a few dormant) examples around my local area.
