^^^ can anyone tell what license plate that is? State/Country?


I believe the bottom plate is a 1953 Alberta. The top and middle is too hard to see on my home computer. I will have another look tomorrow at work.

Quote:
A new VW top speed record has been set at the recent Elvington Mile event held in York, England (United Kingdom). Peter Englezos, proprietor of England's premier Volkswagen transaxle rebuild facility [CogBox], assembled a 1485cc Wolfsburg West equipped 36hp engine and installed it in his 1952 Barndoor Kombi. Peter then proceeded to make three runs down the runway at the former Elvington Air Base with a fastest pas of 85.8 miles per hour establishing a new WW36Bus (Wolfsburg West 36hp Type 2 to 1967) top speed record
