PostSubject: project peanut   Mon Sep 17, 2007 5:25 pm

Very Happy here is my new aircooled toy i got some money from my nan so instead of wasting it i thought i would buy a beetle with it Wink
it started life as a 67, 1500 so disks at the front but four stud wheels No
it now has a 1641 with twin solexes and a stainless exhaust Cool
it needs plenty of work but i'm gonna do a rolling resto a bit at a time
