so i planned this project for our high school's spirit week.. The class of 2008 decided on a 60's theme, so i found this VW Bug on craigslist for.. thats right.... ONLY $20.00!!! (.. well, it's just a smashed up shell..but its still awesome!!).  After much body work and a killer paint job (if i do say so myself), the car turned into this MASTERPIECE! oh i am so very proud!! Cheesy

from a dull car...


...to CAR-TASTIC! Tongue


some more views...




p.s: i worked so hard on this, and this is my first post ever, so any feedback you have would be great!! Thanks everybody!

haha nah.. it doesn't drive; there's no transmission or engine Sad its still pretty sweet though.


I kinda comissioned my technologically-advanced friend to rig up a lighting system, so the headlight (singluar) and tail lights light up!  its gorgeous.. im thinking of stringing christmas lights on it and leaving it in my driveway for the holidays!

That was an amazing find, and a beautiful (and time consuming) paint job!  Wow, 20$, and a ton of work on your part.... Really Great!

That car deserves to have a long life, filled with fun!  Maybe when you are done you you should donate it to a city park or something.  I remember there was an old fire engine at my old park that we could sit in and 'drive'.
