Story:

One of the nicest Oval Rag projects I have seen.  Two years in a row, two ’54 ragtops were found in PA right by Harrisburg.  In late 2013 my awesome ’54 rag was found, then in March of 2015 we found this lil gem.  Both cars found me!  The owners called me up and said “I only want you to buy my bug.” 

So PoPs and I took the road trip out to see this lil guy and bought it on the spot.  I filmed and documented the whole trip.
RUST FREE IS NOT THE WORD!  Talk about staying out of the elements, and in the North East to Boot!

Once we brought the car back to the shop, (all day trip) she was already accounted for.  Our good friend Joe R. jumped on this ’54 ragtop for me to build for him.  I finally found one just for him! 

Stay tuned for the restoration “Build-A-BuG” of this Beetle.
