Definately stick that Beetle on eBay. People actually spend large amounts of time, effort and money trying to get their VW to look like that!!!

Beetle will make about £300 on eBay I reckon. "Project" ones are not worth huge coin unless they are early models really as the costs of restoring one can be immense, especially as some of the more bum-raping of 'specialists'.LHD saab might make some quids to ex-pats and homeward-bound Poles, but probably not much more than it would make on the frag run, sadly.

How strange is that - in the boot of a modern (to me! :wink: ) Saab?Funny enough, I 'lost' one of these in Ireland - do you think it could be the same one? :roll: Wuvvum needs a bit of good news on the R6 front at the moment.

That Saab looks great and i quite fancy one of these as a replacement 'towing wagon' for my Audi 200. Sadly I have no current means of shifting it so i'll have to turn a blind eye I think, what a shame.

Could be worth putting the bug on Volkszone.www.volkszone.com/VZiIf it is a 1302S it will have the 1600cc twin port motor, something that should assure a sale.

The 1302S should also have disc brakes which makes it a good start (or stop :wink: ) for a car. Photos of the floorpans, heater channels (sills) and under the back seat is pretty much all you need.If it's unmessed with, it'll sell. If it's got a dodgy interior, botched electrics and a ton of underseal it'll be like most of the others :roll:

A big LHD car will find a healthy market in Nigeria, I have just sold my Acura at a staggeringly high price to a happy, cash rich African fella, bug an MOT on it, shove it on ebay and watch the silly offers roll in!

That Beetle looks lovely, even with the greenery and rust staining. I was eyeing up a local blue beetle (later model) recently, but I wasn't ready to buy it at the time, and it teased me for months then disappeared. Dont crush this one!
