The same '68, taken in 2006, 8 years after a full resto and backdate. Paint went flat within months.

1968 bug, my first car!

Taken back in 1995, after I'd rebuilt it following a small incident involving black ice, a hedge and a fence, resulting in a bent front beam. Not fully under the influence of Cal Look yet...

Took this sitting on the step of my wife's camper at Cal Look Drags at Shakespeare County Raceway in 2017.
I don't often take decent photos but I like this one!

My old '70 Cal Looker
Neil Davies
A crappy photo of one of the best cars I ever owned. A low mileage, 1970 1300 model, painted once in it's life and never welded. By the time I got it, it needed a pair of heater channels and some other little repairs, and I cut and turned the beam, put Empi Sprintstars on it and built a nice little 1641 with twin quiet packs.
I made money when I sold it, but I loved it more than pretty much any other beetle I've ever owned!

Also hacked out was the speedo hole - there was a fibreglass cover over the stock dash but an Autometer Monster in place of the speedo, got a donor section and swapped it over!

On the race car (which I suspect the shell started out as a Jeans special edition), the rear vents had been cut out and replaced with a script - 80s-style! Less "Flaming Hot", more Flaming Awful! Two cuts with a grinder on the body and donor piece and a load of spot welds to drill out, and three hours later we'd got the new piece in!

Spare wheel well lined up and just about in place. Repro panels really are dreadful quality - the front fits where it touches. We'll sort it! Bonnet lines up really well though.

77mm pistons with 0.060" oversize, I think for a 36hp motor. I calculate the oversize takes an 1192cc motor out to a massive 1240cc!

Dashboard in progress in my race car

Removed the fibreglass cover and uncovered the original metalwork. Needs fixing around the speedo hole though - it had been cut for an Autometer speedo. The resin used to glue the dash on was good stuff - it pulled the paint off the primer!

Here it is, an ex-drag race baja bug (fastest Baja in Europe we think! 12.0's!) with a full 10-sec tagged MSA cage.
Going to be rebuilt as a late model California Look Beetle, and get back on the street and strip!
The shell on the trailer is what I've bought, the complete Baja is what it was!

The shell on the trailer is what I've bought, the complete Baja is what it was! You can just make out the aluminium panelling in the back - it's been done with a steel outer welded into the body and the removeable section dzus'd in, decent job.
