as I had to clean the tires anyway, I tried to figure out how my beetle would look like with white wall tires by using tire foam.

January 25th, 2008 by ernst posted in Blog

…parked this “looker” in front of the garage. a 59 export beetle.
got it 1994 for free, needed only new brakes.
after a small service, checkered flag roof, porsche wheels on adapters and a low budget lowering kit in front ( not shown on the pics )
combined with some goodies in the enginebay, it was ready for roadracing in and around vienna.

inside: a leather trimmed wooden steering wheel from speedwell was mounted and the seats are from an early VW scirocco in fat bisquit design. shifter was a no name product from empiman’s shop called “autoboutique”. dscf2908.JPG
a homemade rollcage was installed behind the seats and the car got a new owner some weeks later.
dont know where the beetle is now…
