1200 Beetle Deluxe

Info

Back in the summer of 2002 the Limerick Classic and Vintage Car Club held their annual show in Ballyneety in County Limerick. This Beetle was one of the many VWs on display that day and although it wasn’t full of custom tricks or better than new, it just stood out from the crowd. I loved the simple styling with colour coded bumpers, blacked out trim and EMPI 8 Spoke rims. The once Rally Yellow (L10A) Beetle had been lowered slightly to give it a better looking stance. It also had a steel sliding sunroof so all in all this was one very cool looking 1977 Beetle but did it survive or has it been abandoned in some yard somewhere?
