    Currently insured with Admiral - luckily the guy at the call centre was a fellow VW owner and knew about MEXICAN BUILT BEETLES - he managed to find '1600i'. The car/model is off the radar of most of the big name insurance companies. Sadly, this years premium is an extra £60 - robbing [email protected][email protected]

    I am in the middle of importing a 21 window '67 samba and customs have asked me for proof of export from EUROPE to USA originally before I can get the £50 duty rate. I thought as they were made in the EC it would be automatic, how stupid. Has anyone else encountered this problem and got any ideas???
