    Rare: Beetle with cross coolers

    Air intakes in the side of the front fenders cannot of course be called anything else than 'Crotch coolers' or 'cross coolers'. This option was only available on 1951/1952 Deluxe 'glasses'. Details such as the cross coolers are rare. So sought after. So they make the VW more valuable. This Beetle in the photos is at Gallery Aaldering and is 100% documented […] More

The highlight of the ceremony was the man who walked quietly to the pulpit, greeted those present correctly, and then said that he had come just to be on the safe side and wished the widow that they would from [...] More

    Theft: The season has started again

    Forward. The time when we brought out our classics again.
