Hi all,

Just back from Volksworld show, and can now let the cat out of the bag!!

The car Evil Ben lewis and me have been doing is a 1968 vw Country buggy?

A very rare factory built car from Australia. It was a basket case six weeks ago but now has show quality underpinnings, Fuchs chrome rims
and a porsche 912 motor ( on loan for photo shoot) Cheers Chewy! The only thing i have done with the body is to wd40 it as a bit of protection.
So 41 years in the outback has left one or two battle scars! just the way it should be!!

me being a complete plum at Compooters i can't sort the short vid clip we have. but if one of you bods could lift it from www.restowagenuk.com
in forums under general chat the thread is 4 up in bens new creation.

Hope someone can, as the sound of the motor with 4 straight cut tubes out the back sounds like a WWII bomber.

My life may be back to some sort of order for a week or two, and i know i have been slacking with some of you :oops: please pm me with your rants and requests!

All the best too yoo's

Al, Creambloodycrackered, home! :D

Yes, nuts in it ?

And whats even madder is that the floor pan that has been lovingly painted and detailed is now mashed!! :lol:

I am glad Ben had made the seats to hinge, as we have been beating the floor straight with a hammer! :lol:

Lifes good!
