Man that thing is sweet.
I remember from way back the roadsters were really hot, a lot of magazines covered them, always loved them. I like the clean look so much better over the convertable look with that bulky top in the back.

Very nice.
Although maybe not GL, I love the wheels you have on them, always been a big fan of the 'fat lip''.

Very cool.

I hope this roadster will be good, but I`d rather have an original 1302/1303 convertible as a project. The plan is a low budget summercar, but things usually get a little out of control... :rolleyes:

Low budget summercar ? Dude, none of the cars you've posted up here are low budget :D

I'd say chances are slim it will be low budget :laugh:
:agree:

The reason why I called it "low-budget" is that the Roadster was hit from behind by a stolen car, so the insurance money will at least cover the cost of the paint job. ;)
I hope to keep the budget from now on, but I`m affraid that plan just went down the toilet.. :shrug:

All sponsors are welcome.... ;)

:eek: Nice paint, it looks even better when in day light, although it does look a little cold :laugh:

Your girlfriend is going to be one lucky lady driving that about this summer time.

boblebaard December 31st 2004 18:32

Cold??? :rolleyes:

It`s freezing here!! :eek:

Just five more months, and the summer is back again.... ;)

Awesome! Is it a stock VW config? 1302 S Roadster? Available in US? Searched web but could not find more info...

boblebaard December 31st 2004 21:32

No, it was a standard 1302 S saloon until we cut the roof off and welded in reinforcements.
We modified the rear so it still has five seats.

Brilliant light choices :agree: nice side ducts in engine bay.

boblebaard January 17th 2005 04:42

Thanx! The side ducts help a lot when you have to change the spark plugs or adjust the carbs. The headlamps will be clearglass for a MK1 Golf as well, but they haven`t arrived yet.
