Title: Croatian cal-lookers
Post by: Doktor on April 22, 2009, 23:48:47 pm
Our aircooled scene is growing for sure, so I decided to show you two cars that I think are really cool.
First car is '67 cream white, and unfortunately - I didn't have chance to see it so there is just one picture.
Rumors are that owner invested about 15k in that car...

Second car is from my good friend Marco.
First owner was elderly lady who sold the car to a guy from city of Rijeka, and later, car surfaced in a classifields and was for sale for about 4500.
Marco wanted to buy the car from the first time he saw it in the classifieds and after some time, we managed to visit the owner and take a look at the car...
It was in perfect condition, almost no rot - I say almost, as I found a small hole of rot in the front bulkhead - nothing too serious and this will be fixed very soon !
Owner was wery surprised when I shown him that "inperfection" and Marco and I managed to lower the price to acceptable 3000...(owner commented that now he knows "Why they call me the Doktor")... ;D

some pictures:

Car features some things as: 1600 dual port engine with j-tubes and Kadron K300 sport exhaust, short gearbox, puma adjustable front beam, four lug drums, painted Empi 8 spoke alloys, original pop-outs, sport steering wheel, VDO tacho in a chrome housing, chopper custom mirrors... and modified rear hood with tunneled space for license plate.
Front end is lowered, tyres are 195-50 front and 205-60 rears. Interior features original door panels, seats and sunvisors and whole interior is unpainted from new !

Future plans include fitting T-bars all round, and since these pictures were taken, Marco changed rear taillights for some US spec red ones !
Will post new pictures later...

regards,
Doktor

cal-look sign doesen't make a cal looker  ;)

First of all,If  i were in your place,I would ditch this Kadron exaust,and put a nice 4in1 bugpack ceramic coated header,with dual quietpacks :)That would look nice on your car,even if they were black

Stance isn't bad for the beginning,mirrors wouldn't fit the rules,but other things would.

Also some t-bars insted of no bars :)

Then it would start looking more serious.

You're right and I accept your cooments.

You have to know that i have in plan to change the exhaust with a dual quietpack and to put on T-bars or blade bumpers in the same color of the car, but now i have no time to realise these plans because i'm preparing my other bug (my first bug) from '74.

I have to finish the '74 bug so my girl can have a car.

Bye
