A farewell morning tea was held for the Beetle at Balmoral Beach today, in preparation for her trip to New Zealand.
Friends farewelled the car with flowers, Kiwi cakes and biscuits and many memories. Children clambered in and out of the Beetle, beeped her horn and tried to guess where her engine was.
The Beetle is going to the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) in Auckland.
The Mosman Daily reported on the farewell party:
'AFTER 54 years touring the world in their vintage VW Beetle, Ivan and Beth Hodge are saying goodbye to their beloved vehicle at a special going-away party.'
