    made the big leap last month and got this badboy

    a 1967 rhd 1300 beetle, the one year model
    wide 5 disk brakes
    5" narrowed beam
    american eagle 5spoke alloys(fat rubber on the back and skinny fronts)
    just added an australian mesh external sun visor
    gonna get my hands on a bigger motor to tune up and get familiar with then smash it in hopefully before summer!
    i havent named it yet but ive been told if i dont dont its considered bad luck?

    Cracking Beetle mate, love it. Looking forward to seeing the plans for the bigger motor progress and to hopefully seeing it in the flesh at some point. My second car was a rhd 1967 1500 and I absolutely loved it.

    cheers bud! when i bought it the guy told me it was a 1500 but after a few days of lookin around i checked the chassis and engine codes and it turns out to be a 1300 model with a 1200 motor! wasnt too bothered tho, just gave me an excuse to start messing!
