Brilliant top end colour. 1967 is/was a great year for VW chassis.

That front end ‘radiator grill’ is asking for either Splinters name or teeth.

You've got to love an uncircumcised Rat! ;D

Gotta be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reference. Splinter was a rat.

Plans are in the pipeline for the grill, not name or teeth related unfortunately Hugh!!

Hi From me..

A MK 2 unmodified RAT with even rarer original side pods... My first buggy in 1192 was a MK2 Rat with side pods. So have a soft spot for them.

Although I did the unthinkable and cut the front wings back and cut the side pods in 2 and threw them down the local tip, but it was 1993.
