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

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.

Followed a caddy truck today with a nice pacific VW burnaby frame on it....I was trying to get up beside him in traffic to yell out window and offer to buy hahaha
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??
