As MotorPunk focusses it’s bleary peepers on the ‘seventies (a decade we consider both the zenith and nadir in motoring history) we’ll share snaps of daily driven ‘seventies machinery we spot on our many travels. Here’s a battered Beetle in Florida blue, seemingly impervious to the salt spray from Emsworth harbour behind. We’ve also spotted a tatty Midget in the same spot, previously. We salute the owner, ignore this cars rust, and celebrate the MOT exemption rule.

If you spot a ‘seventies snotter, drop us a line and we’ll share it here. You can also follow us on Twitter @TheDuisbergKid and Instagram @MotorPunk – cheers.
