The to-do list:
This was a projcet car so naturally there are a few things I didn't get to finish

-Front fenders were given a euro-style flare to clear tires but never finished
-Rear driver's side fender is dented but I have a replacement fender that needs paint
-There are rust bubbles in paint near rear window

I agree, never thought this was an original limited edition bug!
Almost looks like a us version of the GSR

Pity you have to let it go.

Basically the Sports Bug was a US spec GSR, that's why I really want it to go to a good home.

I have searched and this is obviously not a sidewinder.



I have seen the A1 Sidewinder in ads but not on a car. Do you have a pic with it on?

I don't have any pics with the new sidewinder on the car yet. The merged header exhaust in the pics got destroyed by road construction which I put in the build thread. I upgraded to the sidewinder so that wouldn't happen again

The pictured exhaust wouldn't last a week where I live. Love your car. It should sell f-a-s-t ... I hope to call this weekend, and get the three hour difference figured out. Good luck with the sale, with or without me. I know a bit about vet bills. I hope your Lab is doing well. I miss my Dal dearly.

I've had a couple nibbles so far but nothing solid but I do need to sell it soon. I really want the bug to go to a good home, someone that will appreciate it and finish what I started.

Bosch (my lab mix) is doing okay but he's got another expensive 2 night stay at the vet in Jan. We lost our giant malamute Indy (165 lbs. and he was the runt) this time last year so I really don't want to lose Bosch.

Wow, I'm going to sell my 69 soon. I know how hard it must have been to sell spyderb8!

I am going to have a really hard time selling mine.
