Default YLJ821K Baja Bug

I would be very interested to know if anyone knows where this Baja beetle has ended up? I’ve had a dozen vdubs of all types over the last thirty years but this was my very first that I bought when I was 16 and passed my test in. Back when I used to stick the Volksworld centrefolds on my bedroom wall!

It was yellow when I got it and blue when I sold it, but it is now purple apparently, and taxed so hopefully still rolling around the U.K. somewhere. If anyone knows it’s whereabouts i’d be very interested to hear how it’s doing!

Thanks,
Scott.

Hi Scott I've just found your post while searching for my number plate on google! If you'd like to email me carl.bremner AT hotmail.co.uk I'd love to see some old photos of the Baja and I can let you know more about it 🙂

Is this the one that's usually parked at Beighton?
If so I've seen it in the flesh, nice bug!
