Lucy 64 beetle

Postby Franz » Fri Mar 24, 2017 1:26 pm

I've been on vaca most of the week. I show up to KCW this morning, and get a phone call at 8:10am, Its about a note that was left on my/wife's beetle. Original owner 64 beetle that is for sale. Yeah, I'll go look at it. You guys know me, I'm jaded on this VW shit. Everything is too hyped and too expensive. No fun.

Original owner type cars are usually are crazy nice, and valued the same. This one was neither. Its a 64, and pretty much all original, minus the Earl Sheib paint over the original bahama blue. Nothing fancy or special. Just a good old beetle. I'm going to make it run and slammed on earlies. Maybe I'll get lucky and be able to strip it back to original paint.

Guaranteed it would be easier to repaint the whole thing and try to get the red off [-X [-X [-X
