Beetle Owners Club ?

Post by NikC » Tue Jun 10, 2014 7:43 pm

As per topic really ...

Is there such a thing in the UK with a forum as friendly and helpful as we have here?

I finally found and Oval and she lands in the UK on the 22nd of June from Canada. Just a little bit excited !

1956 US Spec Sedan .... Original paint is under that nasty top coat ! Never been welded and pretty much good to go this summer, matching numbers etc etc .... had to tell the Mrs it was for her, but that's fine, I'm sure she'll let me have a go in it ;)

Nice oval maybe we should start a ssvc oval beetle section, :roll: I bought myself an oval last year and I love it. Lots of ssvc members have ovals to. :wink:


Some forums I use. :wink:

My black 55 oval bit of a miss match in the paint but still cool.

Ask if you need help I'm relatively new to them but have worked on most of the working parts off the car.

Cheers for the replies folks :)

Seems like a gap to me that there's no club !

Nice bug. Never seen a VW painted the same colour as an elastoplast before!

Shame the US/Canadian bugs came without semaphore (bloody health and safety eh?).

Used to have a Jungle Green '55. Gotta love an Oval
