    Meet Colin 1970s bug.

    This is Colin. My 1970 1600 Bug.

    Currently in B289 style - although im looking to change things up.

    No idea what direction I want to push this in yet - not sure on colour, and not sure If I want to stick with pre 67 wings and lights or return it to the correct upright lights of the year.

    Infact - if anyone has any suggestions ill gladly listen as i'm still in the kicking around ideas stage. Deffo don't want to go down the road of body chops though... so no roof chops or volksrod conversions please

    Im after an aggressive look... as he looks a little too 'nice' at the minute.

    I might also be tempted to go for a swap deal if anyone has an interesting classic to swap

    Well that looks pretty damn nice as it is to me!
    I've always prefered the earlier style lights and wings over the later stuff but I guess that's just personal preference - they'd be staying if it were mine.
    The colour looks great too, even in that light but if you fancied a change, how about mile-deep black? Might make it look a touch more sinister Deeper dished wheels would help with that aggressive look too but I've got to admit, Empi's just really 'work' on any air-cooled!

    My personal preference would be to go proper New Wave with pastel colours and graphics, but that might not help in the aggression stakes. Maybe just see about getting a nose-down rake? Possibly a name change from Colin to, say, Hannibal might help as well.
