Hi! After having sold the '65 Karmann Ghia convertible (somehow the need to finish this project abruptly came to an end, some high class car restorer is now finishing it) I needed another project. I wanted a patina Volkswagen T2a Westy bus but finding a nice and affordable one isn't easy nowadays as everybody wants that...
So last year I bought this 1960 Volkswagen bug for the meanwhile to attend some VW shows and search for a bus...
Mounted some 5x130 discbrakes with new dropped spindles machined by SlammedPanel:
Early Fuchs job (Deep Six & 5,5's) polished by Freezzr (never again):
And after some cleaning/polishing/detailing, etc.:
While searching for a nice Porsche project I stumbled upon 'the other favorite' and went for it as I couldn't find an affordable and doable Porsche project in a short time.
My new ride is a Januar 1965 Karmann Ghia Convertible. I always liked the looks of a Karmann Ghia, especially when they're nicely detailed, slammed, Fuchsed, black and a convertible... The birth-certificate says it's original a black car with a red interior. And that's what it's going to be. The former owner already bought a new interior, new engine, new vert roof, sheetmetal etc. so that was a great start for me ;)
Well a little update from here... I ditched the idea from buying a nice Porsche 912 project. The 912 from the States I wrote about earlier turned out to be a one dollar paintjob-oil-leaking-rustbucket! After seeing a lot of 912's it just turned out that it was going to be a hell of a job finding a nice projectcar.
Sooooo..... Back to aircooled VW's then ;) I think I'll have a nice car update soon...
