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.
