Lastly, I had one of these modern Majorette Beetles in the blister pack but I had plans for it

I felt this needed a more period colour (actually red primer with a satin lacquer), and I bought a set of 3D printed BRM wheels. Did a bit of stance tweaking to give it a cal-look vibe. Interior is really well done with proper oval era dash and steering wheel plus a suitcase behind the back seat

There's a guy on Facebook who 3D prints them, he actually took over a load of designs from a guy local to me. The original guy supplied the Fuchs on my bay custom

Really pleased with this, I've been trying to find the Corgi Juniors bug with a red interior for a while. Same seller had this Matchbox Golf that seems to have been assembled incorrectly, very tidy other than that

Two whoppers, have a few of both but don’t think any as tidy! One of the golfs is mine since i was a kid. How much are the surfboards out of interest lol

I'll check as the guy that was making them (and aftermarket wheels) sold all his designs to another chap.
I've bought off both but can't see the surfboards on his Facebook shop

Didn’t realise they were black! Always thought yellow/orange like interior

I painted mine as they were just plain translucent plastic. Think the originals were black as they were made with the roof rack

😎 I’m assuming it was about 40years ago when lost mine and don’t remember seeing one with them 😂
Looks great 😎
Always wondered why they made the 5dr and not the gti until recently
