Just a brief intro as it's been a long day: 10 hours driving and over 550 miles covered and the result? My Dad and I are bringing a 1958 Beetle up here to the North East! :)

She's really solid and well looked after. The interior is toast and needs doing, but otherwise we are really chuffed with her. (Comes with a nice little story too, having been featured in a movie in South Africa being driven by the actor Sam Neil in many scenes).

Just got to get a shipping company to bring her up from Hereford this week some time.

P~

Thanks for the comments! The car is really sound with the usual 'no two panels the same shade/finish' paint job where she was sprayed over in blue for the movie, from her original SA white. Something really nice about the colour tho, so no matter what, we plan to retain that 'china blue' as it's become known the last few days.

The car will be kept with me in Prudhoe, so I'm sure you will see it around before we lock it away for the winter.

Any local meets on during the remainder of the summer?

Oh and we will be looking for a knowledgable garage to give the engine a tune up. Any recommendations?
