Pic Of The Week: Peking-Paris VW
Crossed-up cabrio action shot shows there's life in one old, er, Beetle...
Still, it’s been going strong ever since, and the 2010 challenge has just been completed by a mixed bunch of competitors that includes this ‘crossed-up’ cabriolet entered by Garrick L. Staples and Robert McClements who finished the event (11th overall, and 7th in class) in Paris earlier this week.
The picture was taken – not in Paris, obviously – by photographer Gerard Brown, and we’re sharing it today because Garlick ‘really, really likes it’. (We have to pander to him, otherwise he sulks.)
Here we are at Mount Everest
and in Pakistan
and my first Beetle, in the Sahara desert, even in standard form they are great off-roaders!
