  vw beetle

This is Frank, a 1978 Volkswagen Beetle. He was one of the last 300 to be shipped out of Germany destined for the UK, and has a silver plaque on his dashboard detailing him as number 266. These 300 Beetles were all painted silver and had special features such as rubber bumper corners, cloth seats and heated rear windows. Having been garaged for 12 years, Frank was bought by VW guru Richard from Halifax Restorations with 60,000 miles on the clock, and is now driven by his daughter Sam, a fashion student. Frank was until recently called Penelope, but that’s another story.
