Just recently got a scanner, so thought I would post some pics of my old Beetle.

This car was my life for over 5 years and featured in Volksworld magazine in 1997 and was a multi trophy show car for a couple of years ![8D]

I only wish I had kept it ! [:(]

Let me know your thoughts on it !!

The last one is one of my favourite pics. I drove it from Bournemouth to Avon park raceway for Beetle Bash '96 at this ride height- it was low anyway, but the weight of the camping stuff only made it lower [8D]

Lovely looking Beetle mate, is that the real number plate!

Yeah, they were the plates I put on. American style. Got pulled a couple of times with them on and was given a producer. Not really an issue !

I remember you car mate, it was a very nice example...

I think you should get it back [:)] and enjoy the weekends again [:D]

Once my Engine is finished I?m aiming for some AIRBAGS "the lower the better".

Oh my god that is spooky.

I have an exact copy of that last picture taken by myself.

My tent was approx 10 metres away from your car and I couldnt stop looking at it all weekend.

That was the year before I got my first beetle and a group of us got the train to stratford and then I rode all the way from town to the camp site on my raleigh chopper.

Thanks for reminding me of some very happy memories.

Good time to buy aswell, unfortunately Beetle's aren't holding their money at the moment, everyone is wanting Van's.

You know you want to [:p]

Do you still go to some of the show's, i.e. VW Action, Bug Jam?

Mate, that week end was probably the best of my life. It was 21st birthday that week end and just had the most awesome time "dancing " all night and enjoying the company of some lovely "ladies" !! [;)]
