My thoughts exactly Or fuck it, why not just buy a turn key steel body on a custom frame with a crate motor for 1/8th the price. I know a fact if you're rich you can purchase a brand new 1957 repop for 150,000 180,00 if you get the latest corvette motor rammed into it

I think I read that when this project started, he just wanted a clean resto-custom Beetle. But it snowballed, naturally, to an unnatural level. I think the only Beetle left is the cowl.

Not to be a buzz kill...


but I really hate this thread. It is pretty stupid. What I hate is that we have spent two pages on an expensive piece of crap and more people comment on this pile of money than on one of our own members' hard work.

There are sooo many better things to talk about than Britney's shaved head, Miley's cameltoe or some rich douche's fucktardness.


Not mad at anyone....just done with this topic. Would like to see it put on page 283.
