A classic Volkswagen Beetle car which clocked up just TWO miles before it was locked in a garage for 44 years has sold for almost £50,000.<br />
<br />
The 1979 Karmann Cabriolet Beetle was found under a blanket in the garage of a West Midlands home.<br />
<br />
Its previous owner, a retired Volkswagen dealer, had parked the brand new car there in 1979 and never drove it again.<br />
<br />
He had bought the vehicle as it was at the end of its production run and decided to keep hold of it.<br />
<br />
The two miles were the drive from his former dealership in Walsall to his home.
