It was suppose to be mine cause I've been wanting a ragtop bug for a looooong time now
, but the wife con'd me into letting me have my Mustang back
:D
It's a '61 ragtop, but the guy who had it had the wrong tail lights on it
He was missing some parts for the originals, so he just ended up installing some '62 and newer taillights that he already had. I already bought a new set of tail lights for it, I just gotta paint them black :D

Thanks guys! :thumbsup: I started working on the '61 tail lights yesterday, and already have 2 coats on them! :D Gonna be wet sanding them today and seeing how they came out
:D I have a '66 Ghia with Porsche alloy replicas on it, I was thinking of putting them on the bug, but the wife doesn't want to...she says she doesn't want to call the wrong type of attention. I would LOVE to drop the front a little more tho, I LOVE the raked look on Bugs!

This right here is why the new car market is suffering. With great old iron out there like this, who wants to spend $30,000 on a new car?
Exactly! The more the new cars continue to be boring and overcomplicated the more I find myself looking at cars I passed up all day long during the 80s, too much cool stuff out there.

Sweet....I used to be heavily into the VW scene.

Had a 56' rag top semiphore car in highschool with a 2110 stroker. Had lots of fun beating up on all the rich kids at school with thier brand new 5.0's :D

Very nice, My wife wants one but around here they are rusted up to the door handles. If you don't mind, What did you have to give for it?

Careful though, they are dangerous if you get into accidents. Also the magnesium blocks are great fuel for a hot fire! Still cool though!
