Historically, VWs, and foreign cars in general for that matter, were viewed with suspicion in the UK. How times have changed! Car buyers were slowly won over by a handful of trendsetters who put their faith in the first ‘strange German cars’ and started driving around in Beetles, Variants and early buses.

Yes, the shocking news, which would effect not only owners and classic car businesses but also organisers of events such as the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run and the Regent Street Motor Show follows an announcement last year of the Mayor’s aim for a central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).
