Beetle with Zoom!
got into Beetles because of my dad and
uncle. I lived in Germany for the first
three years of my life and at that time
my dad owned three Beetles and my uncle
had a Bay Window Camper. Since that
time I've always been a fan of the classic
air-cooled Beetle. I found my 1970 Standard
1500 Beetle through the forums and paid
£3000 for it. This is as my first
car and it's great fun to drive, turns
heads, and never fails me!
a solid Beetle with a zoom tube and
has had lots of engine, electrical and
all the structural work that normally
becomes common done to it. That was
what attracted me most as I use it as
my daily driver. I have started modifying
my VW and putting my own stamp on it.
I have fitted sloped wings and US spec
lights and will be fitting wide fender
arches and getting it painted black.
I've fitted fully discrete Alpine speakers
and tweeters into kick panels, a glove
box mounted Alpine head unit with a
twin JBL sub woofer.
also got a set of Center Lines to go
on it. The Empi 8 spokes are for the
time being as I had an altercation with
a pot hole which resulted in one of
my Sprintstars splitting in half. I'm
currently claiming the damage from of
the city council. It has an adjustable
front beam and I've added a few little
accessories here and there like a roof
rack and a bamboo shelf under dash.
term plans include a full air ride set
up and engine swap to a Type 4 or Subaru.
I've been to only a couple of local
events as I'm new to the scene but plan
on attending White Noise and Bug Jam
and a few other local events this year.
Hopefully I'll be able to attend Freddyfiles
Ninove in Belgium and VolksWorld next
