From de Archives, 

 

A VW Type 2 Baywindow from the early séries on Luxemburg plates, spotted in 2010 at Peniche, probably the bets portuguese surf spoot...

A little bit of topic...

Later that day, we go dinner at the annual barbecue of the portuguese aircooled web forum near the beach. There we meet other Type 1, 2 , buggys and some more surfers. This barcecue isn't famous among aircooled fans for being the biggest VW event, nor by the originality of the cars, but because is the funnyest 

 

 

The night wasn't started yet, but the bottles allready empty are impressive...

Love the Beach Buggies, surely it's time for a revival of the 'Groovy Metalflake Seventies', easy to build, cheap to run, loads of fun. Or is it that maybe now there are less rotten VW donor cars left, and more Beetles are being restored?

Meanwhile, a VERY long way off topic, your last photo reminded me of one of my old holiday snaps from a long time back, but these empty beer bottles were all my own work! I still miss the Super Bock !

Just looks so good parked between those two late model 'blobmobiles'. Dark blue, white bumpers and wheels, and even the door shuts line up, I agree, it must be one of the best.

We forget how indivdual car designs were until the seventies, but for a low-running-cost commuter car for today you can't beat a Herald, Minor, 105E Anglia or similar. Easy to maintain, no silly electro gizmos to stuff up, and street cred a million per cent over any hot hatch.

Let's have more.
