Yeah...I got a bit obsessed with those! Still haven't found the rare purple one with standard wheels. I do have an unusual variant which has the larger wheel arches but the narrow Superfast wheels, it's not in great shape though

I bid on one of these years ago at the Action Auction but someone else had deeper pockets than me. Picked this up locally via eBay last night

This is the better one that I have in cupboard, think I paid around £8 at a toy fair about 15yr ago. The other is same colour but can’t remember if it has those wheels or super fast. Bro got me it for 50p or £1

That one's the "usual" later Superfast with wider wheels, they enlarged the arches to fit them but for some reason a few have early, thinner Superfast wheels

Another VW landed today, a Treasure Hunt version of the Hot Wheels Mayers Manx from early on (the second release of this casting).

As you can see, the windscreen's been snapped off - but I had a spare

Found several differences, the 2004 TH has a separately cast engine, and thinner roll bar and steering column compared to the 2014 I took apart

I’ve a similar sized lt minibus with opening rear doors, but different wheels.. Has been painted a few times but started as an emergency vehicle of some sort. I got it new in 1988

The very one! Think mine was white originally with red stripes. It’s navy now from memory, I just thought it was cool to see one 😎 think it was dear enough for what it was, although I still remember forking out £8 on a vitesse splitscreen big on same holiday 😂 think they nearly blew my savings for the whole week

I've 'restored' my Tri-Ang "SPOT-ON" Rally Beetle, it was in a poor state, (well 'played-with' by me and next 2 generations), bumpers broken off, (they were part of the chassis casting), missing spare wheel and roof spotlamp, rotten tyres, sagging suspension, cracked windows. Now repainted with home-made bumpers new tyres and windows. :

Nothing like original, but at least I can display it now.

That is very special 😍😍😍
Didn’t realise they were doing anything like that! Any idea of price?

Membership is £19.99 + P+P. You can buy it as a one-off but it's £35!
The green/white German police one is due to come out at some point too.
There are a lot of Corgis but I wouldn't think it unlikely that the type 1+3 Ghias and various T2 pickups, van and bus might get re-done too eventually

There's a non-colour changing version of the Beetle which I didn't find, but there's another VW collector locally who did, but he didn't get the colour changers. Swaps with extras to be arranged
