Notice this car is advertised at the moment for £2.5K

Very reasonable.

It looks a really nice car for £2.5. I saw it for sale and thought it seemed nice too.

But can I just ask you to kindly refrain from making spiteful comments about me on other forums please, especially given the fact that you and I have never even met or spoken to each other, and I have certainly never made any comments about you or other people, other than many years ago on SSVC once I said I liked your van a lot :wink:

I am sure you are a nice person and would not say such silly comments to me in person.

VZI & now even recently SSVC have become childrens playgrounds, and I have not posted on either for a long time now for that very reason.

Thankyou!

Hi sorry someone has upset you and I know how you feel but I'm not lammyrider on any other forum, I am mango guy on other forums, so sorry but I'm not guilty of that, but it's not your fault as I'm lammyrider on here, maybe I should change my name.

OOps! :oops: Sorry! :shock: I wrongly assumed you were the same lammyrider who has posted on vzi!

Anyway, I am sure you will sell the beetle without to much problem, the original interior speaks volumes about how well a car has been cared for over the years :d

I knew I should have bought this car! And to think, a bit of heater channel rot and an incorrect decklid was what made me walk away!:oops: :roll:

Now I have got a rusty 63, with the wrong decklid!:wink: :lol:

I really do hate moaning about other peoples car, I would have it to happen to me, but it is such a shame to go from such an original and lovely car to this! Now it just looks like any other resto cal!:wink: :roll:

Again, sorry if this is your car and you are reading it, I will happily remove it!:wink:

I did nearly go and buy this car, but have promised the wife I will not buy more than 20 cars in any one year. I am learning to restrain myself.

I just wished that I had gone and bought it, the paint also looks near perfect on the new owners photos!:roll: I was terrified when I saw a picture of the original engine coming out but it turned out just to be a way of de-coking the ore heat pipes!:lol:

:lol:

Only 20 a year, you really are cutting back!:lol: :wink:

Yeah, you'd think he'd fix that!:wink: :lol:

In all seriousness, some cars (annoyingly) do kind of suit resto cal, but this one just doesnt!:wink: :roll:
