This Month's Feature VW
 

Piece Of Art

Living in the Philippines I never thought that I would ever own a vintage Volkswagen like this. When I first got her she was in totally bad condition. She was under restoration by the first owner but he got sick the VW was left unfinished. The project was abandoned for quite a long time and left outside to rot.

Then luckily the owners son talked him into selling the car to fund his illness. Money was hard back in those days but somehow I managed to buy it. When I first got a glimpse of it I only saw the Fuch mag wheels because the whole thing was covered. I had no idea exactly what car I was buying and all I knew is that it was old, rusty, and my wife would surely kill me when she see this in the garage.

So I took my friend's Jeep and brought it over to my garage. I kept her inside my garage for quite some time to study and work on it from time to time. I had my friends help me out and I saved most of my money to fund my project. I started to spend more and more time in the garage. My wife and children sometimes got jealous and they said "All you can think about is your old damn car" but I was so desperate to finish it.

Even though I was financially broke at that time, I worked very hard and double time at work to provide for my family and the dream of my VW. I never thought I could finish this project but God has been so kind to me. When I finally finished suddenly everybody was impressed with my work. It's priceless when people admire it and smile at you. To me I think that it's really is a piece of art.
