my new quest! 1963 beetle aka Mabeline

Post by drewBAKER on Sat Oct 09, 2010 3:13 pm

after finding out that the mazda truck i got is a POS. we are on the way to trade it for a 63 bug. it looks fairly solid body-wise. no pans and the engine is locked up. other than that it is a pretty neat car. i hope to fix it up and have a daily driver. maybe teach my old lady how to drive a stick shift! lol

always fun. I still use my daily driver square. Freshly repainted and still rolling along great. Can't beat a daily driver air cooled. Good luck with it, can't wait to see pictures

SO, now Mabeline is Mine. I traded my 91 Jetta to Drew for it. I'm stoked about having another small window car. Can't wait to get started on her. Now I need to get those pics posted that Drew never did...

Ok, so I'm planning on doing the body swap and get this old girl up and running in 2 weeks. Anybody that would like to come by and help/hangout for a day at the BKR shop is more than welcome. 2-19-2011 hope to get started early because I got a lot to do. PM me for my address.
