      1970 Volkswagen Beetle

      Well, as my first car, I've decided to stray away from the typical teenagers Honda and go with the more original Beetle.

      Hence my name, I plan to customize it a bit. Don't get worried, I plan restoring it from the ground up, painting a different color, make it a woody, and lower it. Along with a faster motor. Nothing too extreme cosmetic wise. I strongly dislike cutting into ANY OEM part. Breaking OEM parts makes me quiver..

      But here's a list of parts I can't seem to find but I've seen them on other peoples beetles;

      • Roof Rack
      • Rack for Hood (the one in the back)
      • Sun Visor for Windsheild


      If you help me find some if not all of these that would be great!

      how about volksyard.com ?

      you have a vintage car, so new parts are probably scarce

      It's 6 cylinder, RWD, and purple.

      Sweet idea, but for a daily driver?

      The racks are ok, but please chill on the visor idea for a while. Those things are just hideous.
