I bought my dream car last may (may 4th, actually, for the nerds out there)
It was a 1963 Beetle. 1300cc. 36 hp. Originally alpine white like herbie but it was painted black with roller primer to "preserve it". when i bought it, the motor ran but the clutch was toast. it wouldent move.
Slowly over the summer ( i did everything from may to august). I got it painted matte black with matte white on the sides, put all new chrome on it, new running boards, new wheels, new motor, with alot more jam.
Sadly, this all came to a halt when i blew out the rings in sept. Gonna have a fresh rebuild in march, and then will be boosting. Might not be as fancy as some of the cars here (which i love) but ive wanted this for 30 years. Hope you all like it.
