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.
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.
