HS618 Rebuild


After 42 years it's finally time for a tidy upon the street beetle. With the drag beetle sold, theres now room in the garage to "tidy up the edges".

Love this car!

It's impressive how well it still presents, a credit to you.

I look forward to seeing what you have planned come together.

G'day Henry...



I'd rather wear a Beetle out by racing it than by polishing it!

I guessed that Jeff. In all honesty, the oval hasn't turned wheels that much for a while, but the ravages of time are relentless, hence the tidy up. It'll be driven a lot more soon.

No, ive had a few similar at the same time, but this is the original that'll probably go when I go.
The yellow drag beetle sold early this year.
Ive had this oval since 1976.
