Vw Bug! — Bought this car in 2002 and it cost £600 - Approx £8k later and this is it now! Pic 1 shows the front suspension wound right down and narrowed beam, 20mm ground clearance!!! Images 2 shows rear wheels wound right down too! Spent 2k on the interior seats from Bernard Newbury and the wheels cost £1k... oh and its now on its 3rd engine (they keep blowing up on me!!) My baby, only comes out on sunny days hence its only done 30miles this year!!

My First Car :-) — I guess it was ok in 1969 -- but by the time I bought it in 1982, it'd seen it's last days. It stalled at traffic lights and then didn't run at all after I gave it it's first tune-up thinking I could fix it :-)

Fun Off Road Car — My beetle is a baja bug modified for off roading. It takes a lot of work to keep it going through the rough terrain, but its worth it. The wife and I wanted somthing we could cruise around in together in the desert. And it is fun as hell.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Fun Little Car To Play In! By sunflowergal

This car is great for a single person or couple but the back seat will not accommodate a car seat and growing toddler. The car is not made to carry any cargo. It would be perfect for a second car! Read More
