Default Premanand

Mr. Premanand in Goa is a really nice gentleman!

He has these VW vans and beetles under restoration. He is not a commercial kind of person but very passionate. Most of his workers had gone back to UP and Bihar during eid and diwali so he was working on these machines on his own.

He loves to bring these machines up. Invests a lot of time energy effort and money on the cars put up on the chopping block at the kabari walas and gets the parts and in some cases full cars from there for spares. Infact one of the beetle parked there is only to be chopped and cannibalised for body spares.

Its a pleasure spending time with him. He loves it and so do you.

I had the pleasure of spending an hour with him during my recent Goa visit post diwali.

Kudos to Premanand for keeping the spirit alive.

His 2 sons are not into this business. This is his father's business and he is keeping it alive.

So lets keep it going for him!

Cheers!

Daiiiiyymm ! you got some sharp observation skills my boy. I saw the White and Black case. Missed the blue box on the bench.

Looks like you had all the tools to be in the 70s spaced-out frame of mind to rebuild this Van.

Prem is a great guy and as you say loves the classic VWs,he is very talented and skillfull worker.the 2 splitscreens he has there at the moment
are not finished yet and are owned by an English man.I was speaking to
him in the UK 4 months ago and he will be selling them when completed.
I dont think he is in goa at this time but i am surei t wont be long before he is.
I cannot give you his details until i have spoken to him first.
Im going to see prem in the next few days and will take some uptodated pics.Thanks for your interest.

The second concept looks modern groovy. I am sure it will sell well in put into production. I remember seeing one of these vans rusting in Blr somewhere. When I see it next time will take a picture.

Looks very similar to my VW, only the tail lights differ-while mine is oval and the front indicators are below the headlight.

Can we have some more day pics of this van and also its interiors. Would help me immensley.
