I was surfing the 'net and this advert from my youth popped into my head. There's nothing you can't find with a search these days!
This is from 1988. The UK had just gone up to two commercial channels, so anyone who was around then will remember this ad!
I'm not into Beetles enough to spot the model, but I'm sure someone will? Guessing mid '70's, so would have been a cheap, 10yr old car at the time.

Looks like a 1970 model that I have here in the states. I can tell by the two vents in the rear deck. Not sure what they offered in the UK tho...
