My mate Wayne McCarthy won best of show at the NEC classic car show yesterday (I turned down an Invite, to help organise the Velocake CX race in Redruth) I just hope people appreciated it.

The 62 bug is owned by Wayne and built by 'Evilben' Lewis, painted by Gavin Jones..... top work. This is not only the best detailed classic VW I've seen, but the best detailed car I've seen.

I'll get a pic up when photobucket starts playing ball!

al. :D

75's are an old mans car for old men with no imagination and are old!
The only thing worse than a 75 is 3 x 25's :lol:

Yep! I agree about the P5 :D

Although a P6 V8 would be a nice motor to cruise in.
