Cover Cars: Andy Roberts’ Trio of Volkswagen Samba Buses

Andy Roberts' Trio of Volkswagen Samba Buses

Andy Roberts’ Trio of Volkswagen Samba buses were featured on the front cover of issue 59 of VW Magazine Australia (VWMA). The trio consists a 1957 23-window, 1960 23-window and 1963 21-window model and surely makes it one of the more impressive private collections in the country. The fact that they’ve been immaculately restored and catalogued just adds to the appeal. The feature also marks my fifth front cover of VWMA 🙂

Feature Car: Andy Roberts’ 1951 Volkswagen Split-Window Beetle


12 Jul

Andy Roberts’ concours-level 1951 Volkswagen Split Window Beetle was first registered in NSW, Australia in 1952, two years before imports began, making it the first ever registered in the state. It was treated to a ground-up restoration in the 1980s and remains one of the finest examples you’re likely to see. I had the pleasure of seeing it up close when I shot it for VW Magazine Australia and you can see the photos and read the story in the latest issue, which is out now.
