    hi from the netherlands

    hi all folks,
    my name is Pascal, 38 year old car enthousiast. married two kids and still recovering from some reconstructive surgery on my feet (damn stray dog chewed up my achilles tendons and some muscle in legs)
    i did lots of work on beetles in the past. atm helping a friend building a custom car based on a 1977 opel kadett coupe (spaceframe chassis, V8 and other goodies) i also build F1 stockcar racers for the few oval tracks we have here in holland. as for a hotrod, well, i will go the Gary Janes method and adapt a "32 roadster body to be fitted on a beetle chassis. why i hear you ask......
    wel its simple. to get a proper rod streetlegal here we have to built a hotrod, bring to Great Brittain, get the car roadlegal there, import back to netherlands and aprove the rod over here. not impossible, just expensive. for the costs involved in that method i can built the whole car over here on bug chassis and on other hand, I never fitted in the "normal way of doing things" lifestyle

    the regs seem so tough in holland and the rest of europe, i guess thats why vw beetles are so popular with the likes of airmighty and volksfahrer being so popular in holland ,erwins road trips on volksfarer website are epic , well worth looking at if you are into bugs or rods.

    ..and the tight regs abroad are getting even tougher. I am led to believe that BIVA will not be accepted in the rest of EU as readily as the SVA was, part of the reason for the introduction.


    Welcome Pascal by the way

    rumors go here that we will get out own version of SVA. no one knows how it will be, or if we can get cars legal now. not even authorities themselfs will still be expensive. and the way i will build the "rod" it will be aproved as buggy, p#ss easy to do than.

    teach your children to think, not what to think.
    I am different, just like you.

    If you get SVA it will be a big result for you. All members of the EU have a right to have an IVA test ,so far UK is the only to take it up.
