Hi Man,

Call me on 9886053699, will show you one(BANGALORE) which is appropriate for your daily commute. The VW is done up recently and is a nice piece and also to add, it comes within your stipulated budget.

You can also e-mail me on raghav.kadam@gmail.com,

Will be glad to share the pics.

That inspired me.
Isn't it a possibility to do the same here?, a cool thing to do, driving to office in a classic compared to all the newage similar looking car.
The "Bug" has a certain charm, for sure, but in all honesty it never was a really good car quality wise. One constant nagging problem for these was the front suspension and steering box. These tend to go bad with disasterous results. How are you going to get spares for this thing? I hope you will reconsider and go after something you can more easily keep running.

Somebody stole it. Would you believe it? Anyway, you do not have to come here to worship me. You can just send me money. This is actually a much more effective form of worship.

Note from Mod : Old thread, hence closing. Please refer to our "classics for sale" discussion.
