Hello, Nick Here. My rides.


Hi everyone,

 Just thought I'd say hello.

 I'm 26, I live in Horsham, Sussex. I have a 1973 GT beetle with the roof hacked off and a 1963 Split which I'm currently doing up. I am a member of the SSVC.

 The bug has been in the family for years (I didn't choose the colour :lol: ) and has had just about every panel and the floorpans replaced since the family bought it. I took over ownership of it 3 years ago after it had been sitting in a barn for 5ish years and got it back to health. I have been to the last 2 Brighton Breezes, the 2 Buglovin events, Aldershot Retro Custom wheels day, 2007 Beach Buggin in Portsmouth and the SVWOC show in Chalvington.

 Here's Bertie

 The Split is a work in progress. It is a Californian import, I got it in December.

 I have a big thread on the SSVC website [url][sign in to see URL]

 Would be cool to meet some others at shows etc at some point.

 Thanks for reading

Wow, must have taken you really ages to find a splitty that colour co-ordinated so perfectly with your dog.

Why aim for perfection when a lampost is a reachable target?

 Hi all,

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.
