Some photos taken... many work on him also... We have a portuguese expression that we use in the cars taht is "Jágora"... it's not a "real" word, we treat like it was a guy... How to explain... it's two words in one: já agora... The first is "now" in english and the second is just... the real thing is when you are taken a mirror (or other part of the car) out, let's take the door also... Let's wash the car... why not some wax also... why not paint the car? You will understand when you see the other photos...

The portuguese history of this car started at 2003 when the guy who sold it to me, see the car on the mobile.de site.
Bought him, payed for a trailer until the Hamburg airport and put the car on a cargo plane to Madeira island. When he go to pick uo the car, he have a beer box in the place of the driver and no seats at all on the car... Evil or Very Mad
The gear box was broken... he payed to fix up the gear, make some kind of rear seats and use the front ones from a beetle he had for parts... The engine and brakes were also checked at the time.
After that, the car was shipped by boat to the Porto Santo island, were he have a house and stayed there until the end the summer of the last year. 3 of the doors were still there at the time... Neutral

He told me that used the car only in the summer, with the wife and the 3 kids they have. He also have some friends that used the car and the house in several times... 9000 kms in 9 years... He also sayed to me that he NEVES WASHED THE CAR IN ALL THAT TIME... Shocked Shocked Shocked
