Default Re: Do you guys start with drivers or basket cases?

I started with a wrecked 66' a fender, hood, and front apron. Mangled to get the motor started and off I went, then come to find out my beam was bent and it was pretty awful.

But in all honesty, to each his own I suppose. The purists will just be a little sadder inside if you cut up a good looking bug, the way I see it, I just made their vw that much more profitable. Don't get me wrong I hate seeing a pretty vw cut up, but I also hate seeing beautiful Chevys cut up.

And finally I'd really go for at the very least a "running" bug just because if the body isn't pretty at least you can drive it like you stole it!
