It now appears that there's enough interest in VW specific plate frames to have a dedicated thread.
Some of us here have been collecting (hoarding) these for many many years.

Here's the chance to post what you have and what your looking for. Make a trade or list it for sale here.




Post away!

Ill play....heres the ones I have. I want a matching Speedway one with the dealer name on the top....every one (other than this one has Victoria up top?) Who has one they wanna part with?


(http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p201/joshbuchan/Mobile%20Uploads/20140220_211737_zpsbryb3kwc.jpg)

The Douglas VW Victoria is even more rare (I believe) becsuse they werent around very long?
I may be into trading it for a nice speedway to match my other one? I will be remaking and mounting a couple of these bad ass little jems too....

I still paid more then 75.00 though

Long time ago, I know.....
Are you sure you saw "Burnaby" on it?
Volkswagen Pacific started on Seymour St in Vancouver in 53 or 54(?), then opened up a second location on Broadway, finally moving to 4444 Lougheed Hwy in Burnaby.  My car was sold from the Burnaby location, but came with a "Volkswagen Pacific, Vancouver" frame.  I've asked two former employees of that dealer and they said that when Vancouver and Burnaby were both in operation at the same time, the frames were always "Vancouver".
But later on, the Vancouver location closed, leaving only Bby.  By then you would think they'd make the frames with Burnaby?  Or was that at the time when frames were all plastic?

Who's got a Volkswagen Pacific Burnaby frame??
