mom would be like: dear, call the dector, we have an emergency ohmy.gif
dad would be like: ok, but only if u let me drive it
i would be like: sad.gif
lol
sorry for the offtopic
the stigster
looks strong just need alot of body work on it and interior. front looks quite strong cus normally you have to replace the front end but it might just need some touch ups. how much was it, my guess is about 4-5k (british pounds) maybe seen as a restored one is about 13-20k(british pounds) lol

and stingster, one of our friends bought it so he could get parts off of it, then he gave it to another one of our friends, and he diddent need it, and he dosent have the room in his garage to fit all his cars plus that one. so he gave it to me.

Get it runnin, bolt a park bench in the front, put some lights in it, slam it BAM your a cult hero

Honestly though happy birthday and congrats, I wish I had the space/time/money/drive to find and build one of these (Canada is tough on VW's)

Keep us updated.... PLEASE!
Carly.
paint it yellow and red and blue and write bryce on the side to prove that you own it.
Daniel.
Why The f*** yellow?
U are really weird.
Stendert.
bottom white and do the top candy apple red

it is an old model, you can see that on the rests of the front blinker
Carly.
no, i'd say black on top, grey on bottom. i think that was a stock option before, ive seen a few like that.
Ed.
to be honest mate, find an old Subaru Legacy engine, even the 2.0 NA flat four'll do, link it to the rear wheels, cut the leaves and have it near-scraping. sort out the windows, fit a close-ratio rack and pinion, sort out some disks up front, and put on some lights. little bit of rust repair on the chassis rails and engine mounts, should make a fun little cult wagon. f*** paint, bare steel, primer and filler ftw.

DobsonusPrime.
Lol,

What about a porsche engine? Don't people put those in em?

And then have like a waterbed in the back with shag carpets and stuff tongue.gif
Yoda
I agree with Ed, I would get the electrical, floors, suspension, brakes, and engine sorted and just leave the rest be, maybe fix the glass to get the bugs otuta your teeth tongue.gif


So you wanna be a cult super star, and rust cars, with low pros, ya scrape bars you in charge, air'in up the bags, drive slow got no po-po pullin ya over for flyin far


Lame attempt at a rap!
Jolteon
Instead of using a transplanted engine, how abouts use a old 1600 or even a 2000 if you could get a good one, keep it all original, ya' know? tongue.gif

lol, are you restoring?

if you are, than lets have a battle.

we will se who compleats there car first

youll probaly win because your bug is a super, and mine is a 57, so your parts are eazy to find and your way older so you probaly have a job, so you probaly have more monney than me.

also mine is in worse condition

but i have a good advantage, my dads shop.

they get discounts on sertan kinds of parts.

and my dad and his friends are specialists

and the have the right tools and equipment to do the job.
Yoda
I have a shop/machine shop/body shop at my disposal and $100,000 in snap-on tools at my fingertips

the advantage you have is you have a shell, I haev an engine.. LOL I lost my beetle in a legal matter so I only have the engine (and about $17 canadian to my name lol)

HOWEVER I met a man through that legal battel today who has over 100 Kombi's Westies Dokas T3 Synchros and the like ONTOP of his Beetle, Puma, Karman Giha and Thing collectons so I may be grabbing some vehicles off him (hes in a land battle and will lose alot of his collection soon)

Maybe we can have a restore off tongue.gif
Jolteon
If somebody can fund me a car ill join in! tongue.gif

Yoda
I gotta take a trip to his barn 4 hours up north to get the pics (he should take me soon) he has some other neat cars I'm lookin at though, like his Lada Nivia Pickup and a Citroen Panel Van

If I have my way our battle won't be fair (your bus is in MUCH worse condition then the one he showed me pics of that I want) but when I do eventually buy the ones that I want off him I'll group them together so it's fair tongue.gif

Mostly I want his 79 Scirocco for a DD cause the Supra is too much on insurace ha ha
