I was at the VW launch yesterday. I saw this beetle along with atleast 12 more Beetles in all their glory. It was nice meeting many T-bhpians like Naren, Raghavendra, IVI, byas, brat001 and others. There was also the much-awaited stretch Beetle belonging to brat001. Will post pictures by tomorrow.

Hi These two cars belong to 2 brothers.

One is a latest model fully original White VW 1300 and the other is customised Stretch Limo Beetle.(one of its kind in Bangalore "Maybe in India")

That rally was surely a hit maybe with the awareness and newspaper coverage that it got. Surely these are classics and cute in their own right.

Pavan and Naren ! Great going dudes and i think now the tally of beetles is around 20 if i am not wrong here in Bangy. So just inquisitive about your group, which one is the oldest and the newest among your group , i mean the year in which it was manufactured?
