PAUSE… I am now continuing this on the second day of Spring, having decided yesterday sod work, and blatting off in the Cali to Coombe Abbey Park to watch the herons and get a dose of Vitamin D instead!

’57 heaven

After the drab and austere war post war years, in the Fifties two tone paint and shiny chrome had a resurgence of interest, notably for extravagant luxury cars in the USA. Two colour cars brought brightness into people’s lives and were a sign of increasing affluence and a classy status symbol – a symbol of better times. This stunning example was built in January 1957, finished in the distinctive and classic Chestnut Brown over Sealing Wax Red and with factory fitted Safari Windscreens + 6 pop out side windows It was this thinking that VW quickly understood when they launched the new Microbus models in 1951.

Sean Kirkland is one very lucky VW enthusiast. After being knocked over by a light blue Beetle at the tender age of 10 and living to tell the tale, his Mother has always blamed his enthusiasm for VWs by saying that it was literally knocked into his head from an early age! And guess what, his first car was both a Beetle and light blue ... that is until he re-sprayed the 1300 yellow and gave it the Callook treatment.
