    Rusty's 62 beetle

    Hi everyone, I bought this 1962 beetle from a garage sale in my home town of Natimuk on sunday. My plans are to get the beetle on the road and then get back on to my bay window camper.

    Yes, the 350 on the window was the price, and they delivered it for me.

    It's cheap because it needs a wash!
    Good find.

    What a find!
    An altitude adjustment and it'd be just about perfect :cool:

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread :)

    The look I am going for is clean, reliable but with a few blemishes.
    Cheers Rusty
