I know you should probably create on of these as youve just joined, but i never did! lol!

So ill make this one and just add to it!

My 1971 bug bought from wiltshire. It was completley stock when I bought it. I bought it off a chap that took it off an old women who claims to be the owner from new???

When I bought the car, I never thought of doing a full strip down and rstoring the whole lot, but as im now in the club, the thought of it does lurk in the back of my head! Especially when you see v dubs like Spencers and Scoops (well done boyz) afro

The bug was in as good a condition as it is now except from a good t cut, some welding under the front behind the beam, and a fiddle with the breaks.

Nothing like a good t cut. Never new it would come out so well!

This is how the engine looked when I purchased the car, very little has changed since, apart from a few minor things!

New pic not wanting to work, ill update another time! Evil or Very Mad

One thing I was keen on doing was lowering the front. At stock height it was riding very high,.....

So I bought the dropped spindles and now,....

Its now slowly coming together, although with my travels now approaching, it may slow down even more, however it will be attending the first CTTP 07 with my dad behind the wheel!! Very Happy
