In September of 2017 I purchased a project vehicle, a 1974 1303 VW Super Beetle that I promptly named Żuczek.
Żuczek is more or less Polish for “little beetle”.
After driving the car home across the state, it became apparent there were far worse problems than I original anticipated.
As I started digging into the car, I discovered more and more issues. Most of 2018 was spent lamenting the purchase.
Finally, I decided in September 2018, to go another route for my project and purchased a 1972 1302 VW Super Beetle in what I hope is better shape deep down in the car’s guts.
The new car, christened Żuczek K. Brzęczyszczykiewicz, will start undergo what I expect to be a several year restoration and modification starting in 2019.
