68 VW Beetle

Number three build for the year!

Only change to this one was wheels ad tires.

Replica of one that I worked on a long time ago at the VW shop!

I like it a lot. Never would've thought of those wheels, but they work well.

Guys were using adapters and mostly GM factory wheels or mags with the GM lug pattern.

I had Pontiac rally on my Baja bug.

A few like the one I modeled this one after used Mopar wheels, same pattern as Ford. After we painted it orange he switched to these and sold me the Ford Torino GT wheels we took off.

Very well done VW, really like that color.  Nicely done interior.  Just another one I let get away and wish I had back, was a blast to drive, even watching the highway speed by through the floorboard.

Very very nice. I've got to build a replica of my old Bug I owned back in the day.
