Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Readers Rides

Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, 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 (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Default My 68 bug........DUB!

here she is....been wanting a bug since i was 18 so decided that i would save up get one when i was 21 and the insurance was affordable! which it turns out is now cheaper than the corsa i was driving before......
Plans are to get a rear luggage rack for kitesurfing kit....
Put in ICE in the glovebox so i dont have to cut the dash.....
Keep it looking gorgeous for years to come................

here she is....


















What you think??im loving it!

Ive got to replace the drivers side door mechanism and do a bit of touching up here and there but apart from that shes gorgeous.........
