    there appears to be two different style "Park Motors" stickers on this van from the flickr photostream about Kevin Feeney. It would be similar vintage to my Audi. I'll hold off til I land on a better example of this:

    I was sent this by a friend, from the back window of an '80s Aer Lingus VW transporter. Obviously They'd started supplying Mazdas too by that stage. It's badly deteriorated and too new but nice to see nonetheless :)

    more from Stradbally Steam Rally today:

    some more dealer stickers spotted at Stradbally today. Sadly, none are VW-specific.

    If anybody comes across a dark blue (70's/80's period) 'Coleborns, Dunlavin' dealer sticker could they please post a pic of it here. (Main Opel dealer at the time).

    three more from the VAGE show, Fermoy, yesterday. I think the Divanes one is already pictured here though.

    Bill Cullen's Ford dealership from the eighties, was somewhere on the Greenhills Road. It's been on the car from new and is very faded, trying to get a copy made.

    There's a garage in Tipperary that have been using the same sticker for years.
    Its red and has the outline of what looks to me an American 60s' fastback, I cant remember which garage it is now.

    There's a couple of vw- related events on the horizon: a VW only swap meet in Wicklow on 1st October
    A seaside aircooled VW meet in tramore on the same day
    An aircooled VW indoor show in castledermot at the end of October

    I have a couple of beetles at the moment and I restore my own ones.


  • Registered Users Posts: 169 ✭✭ WDB123


    Will go to the castledermot one,keep me posted if you dont mind

    I see a few mentions of Ballsbridge/ Grange/ Park motors in here.

    This is an ad from an 80's Irish motoring magazine. Not quite a dealer sticker but similar.
