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
