Original 1970's advert dated October 1973, courtesy of The Sun newspaper and our remake in colour.
If anyone has any original adverts re: the jeans it would be great to here from you, its always great to see new clippings.
and here's one published in Autometrix publications of "BEETLING" magazine of April 1974, using the same image and title for Goodliffe Garages LTD (Croydon)

Some may have noticed, but I have now moved the news feed to the home landing page, as it seems more appropriate for it to be there.
Our gmail address has been removed from the page as I wasn't getting the form submissions complete, I have now added Outlook & iCloud buttons, as well as one for Facebook
Lastly the photos in the galleries have all been updated
Another jeans famous on the show scene RSX 164M is now owned by a celeb', we knew it was a famous movie star but wasn't quite sure who.
Built by Marco de waal this stunning jeans will be enjoying the sunshine stateside by yes no other than Ewan McGregor of Star Wars fame, here's hoping he'll join us.
So what about it Ewan? I feel the force is strong with you.

Im desperately seeking any UK jeans or European VIN that falls in the range shown in the pic above, your VIN can be starred out as above, when submitting if you wish, I'm also after VIN that fit in the ranges below, just to get a clearer picture of production dates
114-2-057 to 059 (desperate for these)
114-2-211 to 212 (desperate for these)
114-2-216 (desperate for these)
114-2-238 (desperate for these)
if you have any before or after these numbers that would be great too, but don't think they exist, at least for the jeans mark.
Of course any production plate info too, helps immensely.
thanks in advance

TMK 675M The Famous One
Well it seems the famous one has a new home, many of us were shocked the other day when the advert came up on our page announcing the reluctant sale of "the man about the house" jeans beetle, and at a very good price too, and I announced then it wouldn't be for sale long as it would get snapped up, and I wasn't wrong within a hour from that it was sold, thankfully to one of our members, who I'm sure will give this jeans back its identity, and hopefully put it on the show scene, along with its history of small screen fame.

Easy...... your fuel flaps, as your probably aware we have no definitive pictures of the colour code sticker used (if at all) for the Jeans, but I may have just accidentally stumbled across it on our own Jeans, but two things are throwing me, firstly the location, secondly the size, this one being larger than the current one used in European jeans, that we have evidence of.
sadly the remains of our sticker show no visible traces of the text, so it's over to guys to check your fuel flaps for any traces on sticker residue.
