Beetle.ie 09-09-2020: Thanks for submitting your Beetle Brian. It’s great to have that much history with your Beetle.

UPDATE from Emilio’s Beetles 09-10-2020: “This beetle was bought by Emilio’s Beetles in 1993, restored and put back on the road in late 1993. It was painted at the time in Ford Diamond White for the owner who drove it for a good few years and then sold it on. Another £80 Beetle that was heading for the scrap yard back then. Its great that this one survived and brought great pleasure to its owners throughout the years.”
