OMG I cant believe it I just thought I would update Betty's Resto thread and realised I didnt even start one for her!!!

As most of you know Betty was the girl that got us started with our VW addiction.

We bought her back in May 07 for £4300 and she was worth every penny!!

The kids love her and we have had loads of fun with her at the shows.

Heres some piccies of her when we first bought her (before Gav cleaned her)!

So Gav has taken them off and he's gonna get them powder coated at work, so now she looks a bit naked!!

Unfortunatley her MOT runs out next month and the wet weather is certainly taking its toll on the old girl so Im sure there will be allot more piccies coming soon!!

I have never had a proper look round BBB, perhaps it looks solid. I love the colour and stance.
Keep us up to date.........

She failed as we knew she would. There are 2 pages of failures but the worse bit is three bits of welding (nothing drastic) and the rest are silly little things like light bulbs and dangly hula flowers in the way!!

So altogether im absaloutley delighted!!!

Good old Betty. sunny

This is how its worded:

Windscreen has a sticker or other obstruction encroaching by more than 10 mm within zone 'A'

the only things that are there are the hula flowers and a little speaker mounted on the dash (think that was there for the last MOT tho).

Im not bothered as she failed anyway but if that was the only failure I would have been a bit pi$$ed!!
