My '59 Beetle Xmas pressie!
 
Hello everyone,
This is a picture of the Beetle my wife bought me for xmas. She's ever such a sweet woman.
It's a 59 with semaphores. Owner says it has no structural rust, just surface. Will find out soon enough but rather excited. No gearbox or rear suspension but mechanicals are easy to sort. Got two engine with it to strip and see if I have a good one in there. So yup, I'm quite chuffed really and looking forward to playtime.

Tech69:

Firsttimebug:
she did wrap it. well the keyring anyhow.

Misterecks:
Update I shall, tho they may be a bit slow as money is tight and parts are more expensive over here. How is Nottingham these days? used to live there whilst at uni, and before moving to Oz, and have very fond memories of the place, well apart from st.anns ;)
