Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

A '43 is VERY rare as production almost halted during the war - any pics or a build thread?

Am I right in thinking that the picture is a fabrication made inside a computer?

It is a military DT - but I am guessing you figured that any mate of mine would be restoring a Military wrecker.

Once upon a time it was candy apple red or bust, then it went quiet for a decade or two... but now everywhere you look...
I've always loved Bordeaux Red, on early beetles. There seem to be quite a few of those popping up these days too.
I think Randy has one on Oldbug at the mo - a Hoffman IIRC .

Even most of the ‘photos’ in an Ikea catalogue are cg renders these days:
