I know this is a long shot but I'm looking for a couple Speedway Motor plate frames for the original Speedway 69 beetle I'm working on. Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks Thomas

Found this plate frame on the old interweb last night. Close to the original Speedway Plates from a speed shop in the US. Speedway in Victoria was EST in 1953.

yes, from what i understand they were one of the first dealerships in western Canada to sell beetles. A friend has (had) a split window 53 that has paperwork from Speedway. (It's still on the island)

My Speedway Plates (not real) showed up today. This will do until the real deals can be found. Cheers Thomas

Just sent mine off to get redone....they really aren't that bad, just micro blisters. Quoted $75 each, Chrome sucks!

who did your plating on the plate frames Josh?
75.00 each is pretty good price. it's what I paid like 8 years ago for mine
superior wanted 300.00 for the one I have now, I had it done at another place and it turned out great
I still paid more then 75.00 though

Victoria plating did them, turned out nice but that had a lot to do with how mint the cores were to start with.
