Type 4 fastback project.

Postby Reverend on Nov Fri 20, 2015 2:35 pm

Woot. I'm joining the air cooled population as I just picked up my first one since my first car (Baja). Keeping the patina for now, one owner 60k mile car that's been sitting for the last 20 years is going to be getting a new life in the form of a fun sleeper. Will post more pics when I get her home.

Glad someone bought that. Been scoping that over on the westside for years. Totally funky. Awesome!

I knew of the cars location long before I knew the cars owner. Became friends with his step son unknowingly. When I first found out it was his he told me the kbb on it was $3500 and I said no way. But when he changed his mind to 500 I got first dibs. Plans at this point. Keep patina. Rebuild motor. Turbo it. Race seats and big front brakes. Haven't decided on wheels but in going to run the stock ones a while.

Not yet. House projects are getting funded first. Putting a new roof on this spring so we've been saving our money to do metal. I'll be sure to keep you guys updated when we start on it.
