Sounds like you have clear achievable plans.

This site thrives on questions and photos and banter.

Is it a straight restoration or do you plan some changes based on experience/observations of 10 years driving the buggy ?

I've a suspicion that Vic's kitchen operates a take away service to anyone passing in a buggy - with or without a 'Beetle' badge !

Lovely looking buggy.

What do you know so far about the buggy ie engine size, which area it came from and how it feels to drive.

Well done on creating, or saving, yet another buggy.

The 'GP Beetle' badges add a little personality yet I bet you find some people will question whether it is a 'Beetle'.

Do give us a report after the road test.

Looks like you are off to a flying high standard start.

Answers to your challenges and needs will surely be found on this site.

Keep the updates coming.

Snoopy is at least 6' 4" and he'll be along soon to give more great advice.

The buggy's screen height and roll bar height will be relevant as the former effects flies and wind chill in the eyes and the latter effects whether any wet gear sits above your head.

Well once the Evesham thief has cleaned out (or rather swiped from the front door) all the 800 sets they'll be sure to lower their sights and target the 24 sets to make weight...

Snoopy I saw this crime report earlier and thought of you - wouldn't want Mrs Snoopy to have her borders riffled through:

Theft Main Street, Evesham

Between Tuesday 12th May 19:00hrs Wednesday 13th May 09:05hrs
2 large Buxus spiral trees, value of 175 each and 2 Whichford Pottery Cotswold terracotta planters 225 each, have been stolen from outside the front door of a property of a property.

If you have any further information, CCTV in the area or are offered such items for sale please call 101

PS. Would Vicky be interested in a couple of nice ceramic pots and 2 large trees to go in such ?!

Paul I'm totally with you on your plate preferences but I note you don't list the IVA requiring the makers name.

Perhaps you just got tired of typing the long list of necessary design horrors...

Glad you have sourced some more parts to keep your excellent buggy skills honed and in full use.

Great. The open road beckons.

Welcome Kevin.

Without wishing to sound ghoulish or remind you of happier times but do you have a snap to post of your drag Beetle in flames or before it fired up ?

2332cc will be more than enough weigh and power for a buggy or most sandrails.

Very smart looking Kango there. I've spent years only knowing of Snoopys blue Kango that I hadn't realised they came in snazzy yellow !

What's the buggy scene like in SA ?

Thanks to Chad and Ruth who hosted a Zoom MBC gathering last night.

It was fantastic to see a dozen or so familiar faces looking surprisingly well given the recent circumstances although I picked up that Chad and Ruth might welcome a chance to offer Alex a change of scene !

Zoom's Zoo format isn't a substitute for a real get together - mind you if the Red Lion allowed Lee to dress up and play keyboards that might be a bonus - yet as a bridge to better times it was much appreciated.

Out mowing just now I was oddly reminded that I should make this post by a herd of curious calves...
