PostSubject: My '66 Beetle   Mon Dec 06, 2010 7:53 am

Hiii thanet clasics cheers

My name is Ben and im 18, go under Aircooledbenny on most forums.

I do alot of car pics... You can see them HERE on Flickr!

So... I'm another VW Dude. Mostly do classic car shows in kent so you may have seen my bug around.

I have a 1966 VW beetle, its all original paint and interior. Me and my dad did this custom trim/paint to add some unique-ness to it back in march.

Its currently lowered 1 spline on the rear and down quite a bit on the adjuster up front, I scrape alot.

Its also my daily driver pirat
