Slim..... My new 63 gotta love ruby---red.......

Post by sploval53 on Tue Jan 24, 2012 11:18 pm

Well I finely talked one of my dads friends into letting me get his old bug going. So last Thursday me and my buddy will loaded up and headed south to Warnerrobbins Ga to pull a car out of storage where it sat for 12 years with out the door of the unit being opened. So we get there and open the door and we thinking the worst. But we were shocked. Sitting in that unit was a 1963 bug with a bunch of bad ass cal look goodies on it. A cb selecta drop beam put on in 1986. "The last year the car was driven on the street"
So after bringing it home I struck a deal with the owner. He owned it for 28 yrs and got it from the Og owner
