Had the festive break to transferall my camcorder footage to dvd.Just need to sort editing it and adding some music.
i have taken a few snapshots of the footage from 1995(wheres the time gone!!!)
Every vw fans ideal garage...A camper and beetle.I was lowering beetle at the time hence the beam was off.

That was a great garage i used to have.Two bay campers in no bother.The other belonged to a mate of mine.I used to call his camper the beruit van as it looked like it had been shot with a machine due to the many rust spots on the front lol.

Mazda seats for 20quid from scrappy made the lowered ride more bareable,as the beetle seats have big springs in which made you look like a jack in the box everytime you hit a bump :lmao

Yep, the guy still wants his 356 doing but it's just a question of when, he started a new company up so postponed the resto job last year.
