Thread: Revival of a 1960 Beetle

  1. #1

    Default Revival of a 1960 Beetle

    This is Betty. I found her in a garage sitting beside a burger grill for the last 30 years. Fortunately for Betty, that collection of grease helped preserve her 70’s paint job and also kept her almost 100% rust free.

    Over the past couple of years I’ve slowly worked on getting her back on the road. New brakes, suspension, engine, interior. She’s gone through a few iterations already and will likely go through more as I can’t stop with my wheel ADD.

    Here she is now in all her glory.

    That's a Beetle on steroids! Love it! What's the next thing you're looking to add or change on her?
