Old Cars Spotted Out & About ... No Shows or Rallies!

Flashbacks to 1997: VW Beetle

Flashbacks to 1997: VW Beetle 

Even back in 1997, this VW Bug was already quite old, I imagine!

Possibly around East Molesey, Surrey KT8, following our visit to the Hampton Court Palace.

Location confirmed! This is Hampton Court Road at Chestnut Avenue. The Music Bar has been demolished and re-built; and the Liongate Hotel has also been re-developed.

For years, I've been thinking of scanning the photos of my first ever trip to England in July 1997 with my wonderful friend Dan. I kept delaying the process, as it is very time-consuming, plus I was also thinking of getting a better scanner before scanning the old images. But I recently came to the conclusion that I don't possess enough old film photos or negatives of quality to warrant getting a higher-end scanner. So recently I used my old scanner and simply converted the paper photos into digital format.

This album contains photos of the July 1997 visit to London and the West Country (Cornwall and Devon), with very brief stops in Wiltshire and Wales.

Excellent image, and you've done wonders reproducing it. My 85 year old mother-in-law was recently telling me that her father had one of these (VW Bug) and in red as well.
Sadly he had an accident in that car, and passed away in 1969 (of illness) a while afterwards, and she has always seen red cars as bad luck ever since. Whenever me or hubby have bought a car, she's always said, "It's not red is it?". Actually neither of us has ever had a red car, but it's nothing to do with MIL's beliefs ;o)
Certainly very old, but this one looked to be in great condition. A much loved classic.

Hoi Bertje! Hoe maakt u het? I didn't know that! Brilijant! My primary school teacher Mrs. Yuen used to drive one too. That was in the 1970s. :D
