VOLKSWORLD car of the week

 

 

ZOMBIE MEMBER SPIESSENS BUG CAR OF THE WEEK ON THE VOLKSWORLD SITE

vw-wallpaper-063

This project started out with a car that many thought was only good enough to donate a few parts before being scrapped

 

Take a long hard look at this German Look Beetle but remember that looks can sometimes be deceiving. What at first looks like a Bug with a Porsche-beating engine out back that could pull away so fast it would rip up the asphalt and send time into reverse is not quite what it's about. Let's dig a bit deeper, shall we?
The car's owner, Michael Spiessens, is a 30-year-old metalworking genius from Willebroek in Belgium. Why do we refer to him as a metalwork genius? Well, when you consider that this car cost only 75 euros to buy, which is less than £65, you get a sense of how bad it was. Now look again at these pictures and we're sure you'll agree with us that this ain't no dirt cheap banger any more.
Michael spotted this car in a scrapyard and like most of us he felt the need to rescue this one before it was too late, but then again most of us would have thought it was too late had we seen it. In fact, when Michael dragged it home his friends presumed he was using it for parts but when they asked him which parts he intended to salvage from it - as there wasn't much left of the 1200 Beetle at that time - Michael announced this was his next project and everyone laughed. Who's laughing now?
Michael wasted no time in stripping down this Beetle, during which time most of it just fell apart on his workshop floor. What he had left was a pretty useless chassis and an even worse body but at least he still had a lot of optimism. The first job was to split the body and chassis, which was one of the easiest jobs as most of the main structure had rotten away. The body was braced and put to one side while the chassis was given the full Spiessens treatment, which means both floorpans and frame head were replaced. A new Puma beam was installed to give the desired stance at the front and on the end of that beam you will find disc brakes, KYB gas shocks and some rather dishy BBS Mahle rims which were painted gold before being mounted. The fronts are 7x15 wearing 185/55/15 while the back are 8x15 wearing 195/65/15 and this proved a problem later on when refitting the body and wings as they were too wide, so rather than spoil the lines of the car and fit wider wings, Michael narrowed the rear as well as modifying the inner wings, allowing these big rims to tuck in nicely underneath them.

For the full story on this car make sure you pick up a copy of the August  2010 issue of VolksWorld
