By now you’re wondering; why the affliction with Volkswagen?
Let me go back to a bit of affliction history. It’s because of ‘Max’.
‘Max’ is the name of my parents’ 1963 VW 1500 S Notchback. This was my very first long term encounter with a 1:1 VW and my dad gave it that name. 'Max' is like a well loved family pet. Everybody knows it by name.
I missed it so much today. Why? He's been gone missing! Why again? More of that next time…
To be continued….
My good friend sent me this, last year. It’s one that is in his dad’s collection. I’m so happy on the parallel of sorts and that I’ve finally got this wonderful miniature (been looking for an example, all of these years!).
A model of a 60’s VW Notchback.
A small scale of ‘Max’.
and period feel that is hard to come by today!
