Well it's on the road after 2 years. Not finished with but it at least looks good enough to drive.

Looking for other VW nuts in the west Georgia Area.

I love the German look on Supers. If I owned one, that's the way I'd roll it. Nice car dude.

Thanks

I have got several people ask about the car.

I have only put money into this because I got it for $1.00. I felt I could afoard to put a little money into it.

Normaly I would not keep a Super Beetle. But I like this one. It has been a little different working on it since I have only had one other SB and that was some 23 years ago.

I will be adding things to the car every week .

Thanks again

Notice the new front bumper on in the last picture.

I will take the turn signals off the fender one day and fill them in. But for now I will run with both of them.

I have never been a fan of them either but...............

I got the car from my father-in-law for $1.00
I was all original and had a shimmy in the front end.

The rest is history. I felt I could spend a little on making it lok nice.

Very nice, Your car has changed my outlook on Supers. So much that I'm kind of looking for one. I want to do this to it.....

I like the rear fenders and wheel size. Also the mirrors. The curved wind screen helps with the over all scheme.

I did use all Top Line parts. Not hard just time consuming. Be careful of the strut springs. Those are the most difficult thing to mess with. You can call me anytime you want to to discuss this. I would be glad to talk to you. 678-860-4360
