    Default Pictorial resto story of a Brazilian 68 VW Beetle.

    Hello all!

    Found this on the internet. Its a picture story of the resto of a 68 Brazilian made bug.

    Before Beetle buffs cry out and say its not a 68 let me bring to your knowledge that Brazilian domestic models were made from old model parts/body jigs and thus the result was a weird looking 'cross' between models.

    @ wahaj_skyline

    Although all this was taken off the www, I am actually planning similar treatment for the 1959 Ragtop (sunroof) beetle I have in storage.

    Wish me luck and pray that I am able to undertake that gigantic resto project soon.

    Kind regards.

    That is one neat car, with my favorite candy red color!
