I've been sorting some old photos out and I found a photo of my bedroom wall from about 1994/95 (I was about 15!)...

Anyway I'm well into the whole B289 thing but I'm interested in one of the Beetles on the wall that I know nothing about...

Anyone got any other pics of it? Its just my next project is going to be very similar ;)




Thanks

Sorry for crap scans of old pictures of old pictures :eek:

That's probably my favorite b289 bug ever:D
It was featured in street machine in late 1989 (if i remember correctly) it was an issue that had a yellow splitty and a red ghia in it as well (I've still got the mag in my loft somewhere, I will have to dig it out tomorrow).

all i can remember about it is that Its a '59 bug and it was fitted with a 1600 engine and had some pink detailing under the bonnet etc, but i cant remember much else about it, I will have to have a look for the magazine tomorrow.
