@ Romano and Storm:
Agreed, 1 at a time is the way to go for sure. I am only concentrating on doing up the 61 at the moment. One project is more than enough to handle at one time.
Having said that...every so often...something like this DOES show up (though I doubt this one's for sale - just look at the pics), I can't resist the urge to take it, and just keep it safe. Do nothing to it for the moment: to be worked on only after current project complete.
In any event, I'm not actively looking for another car - only something exceptional could persuade me to deviate from my 1 at a time policy.
In defence of my earlier years, I would simply say that I was a poor law student and old VWs were relatively cheap and plentiful. How things change!!
