This is my sister’s Beetle. It’s a 1200 Dublin car and came through Emilio’s Beetles, restored by a father for his daughter to drive. My sister came to own it when she received it a birthday gift from her fiancee (now husband).
The Beetle got summer use and came out for local car runs over the past 10 years and even starred in a Michael English video shot at the Fishermans Inn near Ballybrittas, Co Laois.
The commitments of having a very young family has seen the Beetle’s road trips become less frequent but it will hopefully be back in full flight in the near future.
Thanks for submitting John. The Beetle looks great. From our research, we can tell you that your sister’s Beetle was originally Sahara Beige back in 1973. Hopefully we’ll see it out and about again soon!
