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

Luxury 1950s style – even a full width dash!Chestnut Brown over Sealing Wax Red paint scheme recalls the classic luxury cars of the 30s.The rear corner windows are what make the early Deluxes so distinctive. Note also the 55- 57 only single brake light; combined tail/ brake lights were introduced in 1958 for US models.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…

The deluxe trim was added on a much-regretted whim. It’s brittle and springs off at the slightest provocationPeace and quiet by UllswaterThe table is in the right place but the leg isn’t the original.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!
