Guy round my way drives around in one of these Bugs Andy. Has music blaring from it. Passed him many times in the fiesta and tried to get his attention to give him a thumbs up but hes not interested. Seen him once while out in B112 and HE gave me a flash and a big wave :lol: :lol:

Hi all, (Andy)

This looks fantastic. I'd be tempted to go on a diet to fit in this to give it a blast!!! Cheers,

John...

Quick but sadly the extra weight and wind drag of the car body will shorten the life of the bike engine. When i was into kit cars the bike engined cars were usually in two states, being driven impressively fast over short distances or else on axle stands having their engines rebuilt, again. people didnt seem to hang onto them for very long either. Meanwhile the ones with car engines would last for ever, would regularly cover vast distances and were sometimes used as daily drivers.
