Registered User
Just thought i'd write something differnt for a change. Bought it cheap for $800 AUD and it has a new coat of paint, new bumpers, and reco 1300 engine.

All it needs is some restoration on the interior but thats it. By the time im finished its going to look like this except mine is a teal colour (bluey green)


Anyone else here with an old VW?

Also will post pics asap (within 2 weeks when its finished /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif)

porsche Fuchs alloys and featured in SuperVWs and
'62 Splitscreen CrewCab which featured in Volksworld and
a couple of VW books
'57 Oval from New Zealand which was resto which featured

I have also built a '72 cal look for a friend, which got best in class at Bug Jam '93 and featured in Custom Car magazine.

Problem at the moment is I moved house and don't currently have room to work on them /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif Hence the Audi and NBC, which kind of make up for it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
