I'm new to this forum, but not to VW's having been owning and working on them since 1991.
well, for mthe last 5 or so years I've also been involved with the longest competing Rally Beetle in the U.K. (Maybe world?)
yes, there aren't older cars Rallying, but Bertie is a 1958 Beetle, has been a Rally car since 1960, and with the same owner since 1966!
