It looks a bit rough at the mo but i have got plans for it as soon as the funds come along.

The whale tale was bought for 50p at peppercorn 2006 and then later sold for £[sign in to see URL] by a mate of mine!! just for laughs lol

as you can see i have changed the old empi's for some polished empi 5's, i just need to lower the back again and give it a new paint job.

Re: 1961 beetle


[sign in to see URL] Today was a good day, i was logging on to the vzi forum and thought i would try serching the lost and found. i scrolled down 2 and found my registation plate staring me in the face, excitedly i cliked on to find the previos owner wanting to find his first car! This guy (Si) sold this car roughly 18 years ago and posted the thread over 2 years ago to find it.(i hope it was worth the wait) Si got back to me and is digging out some old photos of the restoration on the car when he had it. as soon as i get them they are going up!! woop!! woop!!
