Congratulations to our resident expert on all things air-cooled..... THE Trevor Brady who has embarked on a cool journey with Cathal O'Toole to create a census of Beetles on these shores, both past and present, in order to celebrate Ireland’s unique position in VW’s global history as the first country outside of Germany to manufacture the Beetle.

The website Beetle.ie is now live so please head on over to the site to learn more about what is gathered so far and whats in store over the coming months...

On behalf of Autostadt, we wish the guys all the best and also support as they progress this unique opportunity :-bd

thanks for the promo post Mike!!

I'm delighted to be involved in the project with Cathal. Truth be told, it's 99.9% Cathal's work but I'm helping out in any way I can.

The website should be a great collection of memorabilia of the Irish connection with aircooled VWs, from the very start in 1950 up to present day. It should be a great resource for anyone with an interest in old VWs in Ireland and the end result will be a beautiful coffee-table book of information on the historical aspect and real-world stories around growing up with and living with beetles and aircooled VWs as a member of the family.

It'll grow over time, so it's early days yet! If you have any old pics in the family album or old stories to share, please upload them through the "Register" link on the site.

thanks again to Autostadt.ie for the support :)

A brilliant idea and i think there are a lot more out there than people realise. Hopefully this will save more from the abyss as people see what a history there is in this country and are inspired to ressurect the old forgotten beetle lying up in the hayshed or put them in the hands of those who can save them.
