I love old Beetles, I had one as my first car. My dad bought it for me when I was 14, and we spent some time rebuilding it at a friends garage.

Love your car.

It's a bit of an inspiration for me to get my but onto the strip - but I'm still chasing 13s never mind 9s

Very nice and an S40 user a well ;)
