MAD MAD MAD!!!!
I TOLD YOU I WAS MAD...ON VW'S THAT IS...
I came across some old photos the other day and thought i would post them here before i lose them forever.
This bug was a real bonding experience between me and my dad back in the 80's, mainly because we never really saw eye to eye with each other but this car was to be a project for us both.
I bought it as a rusty old 1303 with a 1500cc engine and would you believe a mustard colour...yuk!!! I remember spending hours with my dad in the garage ripping off wings /welding and fitting new parts when i could afford them.
it was the first car i'd ever taken the engine apart on, it was rebuilt along with the rest of the car and even had a crazy porsche whale tail on it , sadly these are the only photos i could find of her but you can just make out the tail..It had a recaro interior and bmw mahle wheels i believe. I also remember selling the car to a very fit young lady who turned up to look at it with her dad, she instantly bought it, but handing the cash over her dad let it slip that a week before she'd stuffed his car into the back of a police car and wrote them both off !!!LMFAO... Its funny how you remember things like that, i wonder what fate the car had after she drove off!! i guess i'll never know.

My Superbug which I still own was the same mustard brown colour, my friends called it PooBug!

Looks very very cool. Even by todays standards of hot beetles

So hard to get the 1303 looking right, but this one looks the biz! Those wheels just set it off! 911 whale tail too! 'PROPER' 80s

do i detect a little bit of sadness in your story. we all look back at toys in fondness. I guess that probably why we are all into Rc.
