He picked it up day after New Years in Calgary Alberta. I think almost all his funky green is in hand, he trying to escape work long enough to come up and bust ass at the shop for a weekI don’t know how he’s lasted this long not laying a finger on it! So so so so amped that my metalwork is almost done…..was a chunk of work camping in it is going to feel so good.
Do you have an email address for Patrick please? Or if you could give him mine: firstname.lastname@example.org I want to put some pictures of his truck in the book..barefootdriverParticipantMarch 8, 2018 at 3:27 amPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 8, 2018 at 3:21 amPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 4, 2018 at 4:33 amPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 2, 2018 at 12:29 pmPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 2, 2018 at 12:17 pmPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 2, 2018 at 12:11 pmPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 1, 2018 at 1:50 pmPost count: 28barefootdriverParticipantMarch 1, 2018 at 1:40 pmPost count: 28
Thats cool. I’ve always wanted to be in the position to buy one of my old cars back. Looked better the first time you owned it.
Me too – it’s the most I’ve ever paid for a Bug. It did look better before, but hopefully nothing that a buff and blend and replacing a few parts won’t fix.
I’ve been driving around in my girl’s Fiat 500c since I sold my Golf TDI back in early Dec, so just looking forward to having my own bug on the road.
The guy I’m buying it off sent me progress pics of the motor – here is the pic I took of the rebuilt long block when I put a deposit down:
and here’s what it look like now:
I think I’ll probably detail it some before fitting it to the car. The good news is I’ve secured some space in a heated workshop from next week in exchange for flipping some bus spindles for a guy I know.
Here was the RHD Swedish postal bug I managed to flip for £4k profit so I could buy the ’67 and have some cashback!
Just a fat chick late model to you guys I bet, but I actually really like the 68-70 Bugs after my beloved ’68 sunroof (which I still regret letting go).
More progress next week fingers crossed – it has snowed in the UK this week and temps dropped to -10 degrees C. This country grinds to a halt when it snows, it’s laughable. Everything is on lock down right now..
