VW Beetle

This VW Beetle had a touch of the ratrod about it. Couldn’t get enough of the bonnet badge and the two tone striping down the side.


End Of The Road For The VW Kombi

After 63 years, VW are stopping production of the Kombi. Ludicrous, pernickety, rule-makers have won out over style, nostalgia, practicality and cool. Since when have air-bags and anti-lock brakes been of any benefit, anyway?

A Rose Amongst The Thorns

Spotted this Combi queuing up alongside  some new fangled rubbish at one of the big Hotels in Melbourne. Naturally, the concierge staff were fighting over who got to park it.


VW Bug – BYO Grass

Location: Air Ride carpark in Bayswater, Victoria

Whilst picking up a wiring loom for the ANOCSC FB Holden, a couple of keen young eyes spotted this bug. A nice car with an amazing roof rack. What made it stand out, however, was the grass covering the rear parcel shelf. Made me laugh, anyway.

The Specials are taking it back to the grass roots and showcasing their back catalog at the Ashburton RSL.


VW Van with Pop Top

As hard as the ANOCSC photographers try, they can’t always get the white feature poptop to blend in with clouds – rendering the very aspect of this car that’s interesting, invisible. Better luck next time.

Ok, I’ll be the one to say it – a 1HP Kombi…

Yes, it’s another beetle – but it looked great and would be great fun to cruise around in.
