My 1970 bubblegum

Post by Volla works » Fri Jul 01, 2016 8:44 pm

The family went to the mother city and they came across a guy selling this beauty. The whole family had fallen in love with her...see that silver bmw it kept up with it up the windy bends too fish on the rocks...so this is my pride and joy that we saved...its a stock 1970 1600 single port with very minor work done. Original interior... woohooo 3 years later woth little resto work done we changed door skins bonnet n knocked dents out the fenders and rust sorted by battery (very common you guys know)after that my grease monkey garage brother n i dropped it cleaned it up and added a zenon light kit...we still working on improving it. We have another project will keep u buggers updated

:10: Wow that is one sexy bug - well done!
Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry, "Hey buddy, have you got a dime?"
And the beat goes on, the beat goes on...

Sambas in South Africa are good for only 2 things: showing off and sunburn.

Come visit sometime - if the two cars I have running wont convince you about the joys of power, then there is no hope for you

Have been quiet for awhile now busy helping my brother start up his customising garage we needed a few changes so my bubblegum now known as letty to be hip with the current fashion and to blend in with the company we widened the rear rims and did tyre lettering just some of the cool customs that can be done @simplicity customs jhb...next mission air ride its what we do😎
