Vintage Volkswagen Postcards

I’m sure Al wouldn’t mind me describing her as a “VW nut”. In her younger, carefree days she owned a beautiful 1963 Gulf blue Beetle, affectionately nicknamed “Bugsy”.

I’ve got fond memories of that car; the picturesque hard shoulders we got to sit on waiting for the RAC, the cold winter mornings when frost would appear on the inside of the windscreen and the gutsy chug of the engine. It felt like a proper car. So it was a really nice surprise when we found these beautiful old VW postcards from the 50s and 60s tucked away in a drawer at home.
