Gearing up for the Volksworld Show

Due to the huge success of last years VW Heritage Beetle Build, the same team have clubbed together and hatched another plan to draw the crowds.

The plan is to convert a rather run of the mill 70’s Beetle into a replica of the classic Empi GTV Beetles of days gone by. Then one lucky person will win the completed car and drive it away after the show!

The team will start work on the Saturday of the show, fitting a narrowed and lowered beam, Empi Sprintstar wheels and a Disc conversion. The engine will be removed for a detail job, twin carbs and a brand new performance exhaust system. (now we’re just showing off!)

As far as brightwork goes the car will be treated to a new set of rear popout windows, new screen seal with chrome trim and new U.S spec europa bumpers with overriders. Neil Melliard from Prosign will be in on the act too providing the stripe work to re-create that classic GTV look. Newton Commercial will be swinging by to overhaul the interior with one of their fantastic trim sets.

The Crew

You may remember this lot from last years Beetle build. Well they’re back again and ready for another big challenge in 2010! As always they’re very confident they can complete on time. Come and check it out!

Hope to see you at the Volksworld show 2010 cheering the team on. Who knows, you could even be driving it home!

Thanks for reading this week, normal service resumes with Andy on Monday.
