Spotted - Enamel VW Service Sign

Today I drove toward Dunmanway, Co. Cork and after asking a bit around I spotted this original enamel VW Service sign. It use to be in the J.D. Bernard, Royal Hotel Garage in Dunmanway in the '60s when it was a VW service point. J.D. Bernard already was a service point for VW as early as 1956. Unfortunately I could not convice the owner to part with the sign...

Original 1959 Dealer Poster

Got this one in last week! Original dealer poster measuring a massive 120x80cm. I am thinking about doing a limited run of reproductions in either A0 or A1 on proper heavy paper. Look at that beautyful art work!

Welcome to

I use to have a web site name but found updating it too cumbersome.  This blog focuses on Volkswagens of 1950 - 1959, specifically with Old Speed items such as for example a Judson Supercharger or a dual carburetor kit. I also have special interest in VW in Ireland is same period and will try to get pictured from Irish VW dealers, sub-dealers and service points from the 1950s.

Enjoy the posts!
