Hi Spitfire, No problem with Blacky,to busy just watching and admiring the splitscreen microbus we were driving. We made about four visits to that area.
Can understand you being angry with yourself about selling the microbus,but you know you really want to see any progress thats been done on it so far . and think to yourself,that could have been mine

Only saw the Mahindra classic there once.

Yup, the twin glove boxes with central metres were only available on Splits, and in 53 a few splits were made with a later style dash.

I missed Bad Camberg, but did make Hessisch Oldendorf in 2005, along with a pilgramage to Wolfsburg, especially to the Stiftung Automuseum and Autostadt. I had never truly experienced bliss till then.

Cyrus thats my cousin and Scooby's son-in-law's brother Anand's ( name mentioned as he was featured in a program with both generation beetles) beetle. he has the original tool box and the minutest details taken care off. he also own a convertible beetle. by far one of the best knowledge in beetles.

hi dave
it is really surprising to find so many vw beetles and busses lying around in goa even after having so many of these cars either been scrapped or sent out to other states..... its would seem worth while to go parts hunting to goa... . could u suggest a good place/workshop/person to start off with...

pavan,karl.... how about a trip to goa.

carbug,

I hope the pics come in reality once you go to Goa,

I really dont feel there are much VW's in Goa presently.

Will go there if someone confirms for sure.

Hi Carbug,well there are still many vws in Goa,but not many parts i am afraid,because of that reason.Like many places in India as you know things are copied and hand made because many parts are now worn out.
Its possible that i may know of a couple of splitscreens buses maybe coming up for sale either later this year or Jan/feb next year.in Goa.
I will be there from Nov 2nd for 5 months so will know more then.

Thanks Speedy. Did not know that Anand Desai has a convertible too. I too have the Original Hazet Tool Kit Box. They are supposed to be one of the most expensive Beetle accessories and goes without saying that I paid a bomb for it. Any pictures of the convertible pls ?

I think this is the car, a 57 oval convertible. If im not mistaken the car has a later 1300cc engine in it, besides some other small practical alterations like the door handles, front indicators, rear badge, meters etc.
