Dad in Germany

Here's a photo of my Dad, (white shirt), when he was in the forces in Germany back in the 1963. At first glance the VW is an oval, but look closer and you will see it is a '51 split. The dash, decklid and crotch cooler in the front panel are the evidence. Back then some people cut out the split to make their cars look like ovals, to make them look more modern!

The second photo is my early collection of '70's bugs. It must have been back in the early '80's and shows my 1971 1302s, a standard '71 and a 1300 sunroof '72 .
