A strokey beard meeting at the Beetle engine. Turns out one of the previous owners had done many a bizarre thing to it. They even found a stretched out wire coathanger shoved in there!

I thought the entire car was largely composed of old wire coathangers and such.

Bracing myself for a slap.........

I think I'd have kept the coat hanger & threw the rest away ;)

Or did they nick the coat hanger ????

If it's still not right, drive the beast up to Newcastle, where a magician named George can sort all Beetly problems.

Oooh. Well now. I guess I couldn't slap you for insinuating that the car is made up of wire coathangers 'cause basically you're right :(

It's just the bits of wire, insulating tape and stubborn understains that held it together long enough to get to Brum!

I'm liking the sound of George :)

George has special powers. One of me mates ran Beetles for years, and George, who lives under the arches at Newcastle station, kept those things running long beyond their natural lifespan. Long beyond.

And welcome back Sketty! How'd yer trip go?

See Alternet or a brief run down under one of your pictures. Got crashed into, laughed at by police, saw the dead comedian John Belushi driving an old VW camper van whilst wearing a fez, got the old engine nicked and much more. Surprisingly I'm alive too :)

Yeah, but everyone sees Belushi driving a camper. That's a pretty universal experience ;)

Glad to see it (and you) made the trip safely anyhow. :)
