Hi All! Well, I've been lingering around here for a couple of weeks now checking things. Currently I'm attending Wyotech in Blairsville, PA but have been into cars for a long time. In my first few months at school I was offered a '69 Beetle with a slider roof for a price I couldn't turn down. When I went to check it out, it had been mostly restored and all the metal work had been done. I had lingered on it for a little while thinking about doing a Cal Look bug and as I came across a pic of Fred Hidalgo's Bug, I couldn't resist going for it. Having been into street rods, I started gathering my parts for the project and that's pretty much where I'm at now. My plans are for what appears to be the typical sort of fenderless bug with the extended front end and I-Beam axle but I'm planning a few twists that I haven't seen done yet. Since we get to work on our own projects in the Street Rod course at Wyotech, I plan on giving the bug a wicked chop for starters which is the largest of my project's alterations. I'm not sure but I was told that the slider roof wouldn't have been original on my bug, can anyone confirm that for me? That's about it for now, let the beatings begin! Ha ha ha!
