For some time now Si has been watching the forums in search of a new project for his girlfriend Jess.
Last week by chance a post popped up on the DTA facebook page asking for advice on registering a car into the Uk with a picture of a type 3 attached..
Immediately Si got onto it with the intention of buying it. The car in question was a one owner 1964 original nutria paint notchback.
After a few emails followed by phone calls, our friend Reinoud from bugpeople.nl was on his way to view the car.
After this Jess, Si, Stefan & Pete set about arranging a collection date. The car was in the east of the Netherlands, not far from the German border.
On collection it was clear to see this faded, dirty, forgotten car had lots of potential. Monday, the day after returning, Si, Pete & Jess set about cleaning 30 years of grime from the car. And then gathered enough courage to mop the whole car. As you can see from the pictures the original paint has come up alright.
