Default My first Beetle :D 1303s Moss green metallic

I GOT MY FIRST BUG
I got a 1303s moss green metallic 1600cc. I got it from a lady who had 2 kids and when i brought the car she started crying she said the bug was original lol my mates dad (Dan Simpson) drove it back from Rochester to Ash in Kent
I got the original receipt for the beetle and lodes more (as in pic)
I started work on the beetle and when i looked at the floor pans, heat channels, and everything else it was ok
iv got plans to do the beetle up really nice. cant wait to get it on the road.
I passed my driving test to day so all i have to do is save up for my insurance and ill be away really cant wait sooooo goooood lol

That looks very original and well kept - it's your car dude, but please resist the temptation to make mods that are irreversible.

What are your plans with it?

I agree. You may not. But it's your bug and if you like the end result that's what matters.

Hi all.
I know this is Nathans thred, but I will be keeping an eye on his progress, you know what youngsters are like, big stereo,slamed, bucket seats,daft colour etc,etc. NO, The plan is to address any rust, get it mechanically perfect, take every nut and bolt out one by one, spray waxoyl up the holes then copper grease the bolts put them back, then waxoyl the car.
Ive suggested keep it the same colour and trim, he likes Christian seltsers marathon blue 1303rs and Gerd weisers 1302s so it will be along those lines, body off in 2 years we hope
cheers for the comments.
Dan.

Welcome to VZI Nathan. Really pleased you got a Beetle! I remember you saying at Spa this year that you wanted a Bug.Can't wait till Spa in 2012 so we can drive around the circuit again. Congratulations on passing your driving test. Hopefully going to see Dan tomorrow so I can have a good look at your bug.
