1957 VW beetle build thread

im sure the first comments from the older members will be immature, and about my cheating in the old sta scavenger hunts, but thats fine.

anyway, a few weeks ago i picked up a 57 oval window vw beetle, it was in rough shape. so here we go

the day we bought her



The damage that needs fixed:






The 57 meets the 74

I'll have to keep an eye on this thread now. I'm awaiting a '74 Beetle to be towed from my boss's house. Doesn't run, so I'll have to do some work, but I'm stoked.

You have any more pics/details about that '74?
