Benny and the Bug

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



Benny Mills, of South Coast Automotive Photography, is a character who typifies the more old-school, get-out-there approach to aircooled dubbery. You name a show, he'll be there in his 'bagged '66 Bug, waving to his chums as he scrapes his chassis rails along the tarmac.
His Beetle is a perfect complement to a retro lifestyle - it casually wears the timeworn patina of ages, not really giving a toss about the cynics' perception of what rust is, and the car's all the more adorable for it. Keep an eye out, you'll probably see Benny and the Bug around...

Spotted at Apex 2014 - more photos here.
