Intro of the '58 bug to be built.

This car was purchased off a bulletin board at Wolfsburg West, while I was buying needed parts to finish my 1959 sunroof beetle. Brandon, the owner of the '58 at the time, was psting the ad as I was standing there. I inquired about it at asked him if I could see the car now. So a short drive up I-15 to Riverside to where the car was located. I purchased it on site. We loaded onto Brandon's trailer and headed to my house. All for the small price of $350.

This is how it looked when I got it home. Someone thought it a good idea to cut the original German fenders, front and rear, including rear apron. I am not sure if they were trying to make a baja bug or to replicate the drag bugs of old.
