Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling - RON BIGGIN

Ron has owned his 1970 Bug for seven years, and it has an in­ter­est­ing his­tory: ‘It all goes back to when I was younger and needed trans­port for work. A mo­tor­bike was no good, but a three-wheeler was per­fect and when I de­cided to own one again a few years later I set­tled on a Bug. This one is a bit of a tele­vi­sion star as it’s the car Mike Brewer and Edd China re­stored on Wheeler Deal­ers! They brought it to the Bug Club’s 40th an­niver­sary event look­ing for a buyer, and that turned out to be me. I’ve done a bit of work to it since, in­clud­ing re­plac­ing the ex­haust and re­fur­bish­ing the wheels, but oth­er­wise it’s been fine and I won’t be part­ing with it. The key to trou­ble-free own­er­ship is reg­u­lar use – they don’t like sit­ting around!’
