Last Edition Beetle Datasheet
Message received from Norman in April 2015:
After 21 years in storage due to raising a family and needing a more family friendly car, and lack of funds, I recently decided to reacquaint myself with my former pride and joy. As you could imagine all was not well, After close inspection some welding will be required; spare wheel well, 1 jacking point and hole in the floor where the accelerator pedal once was. Also, a full respray will be needed due to some rust spots on body work. Mechanical wise a new axle beam, new brakes all round. Hopefully that will be it (fingers crossed). It was running fine when I last used it in July 1994.
