Talking Vintage VW Street Machines Contest

Hey Great Lakes 4x4, I haven't been here in ages, glad to see the forums still going strong!
I've been doing a frame off resto of my V8 S-10 & working on my wife's 70's VW dune buggy.
My father in law gave us his VW dune buggy & I'm in the process of restoring it.
I recently got an email from Appletree Auto saying they're having a VW contest.
So, I entered...

Voting started July 9th & ends Aug 9th. You can vote a couple times daily until Aug 9th.
The prize is a gift card to their VW parts store which we could use to finish the restoration.
Check out the link below & vote if you can. Thanks for the support & wish us luck!

Thanks a bunch guys! I'm not a VW guy by any stretch, this is the wife's doing.
She begged her dad to give us the buggy I told him NO!!!! lol!!!!!
It's been a fun project & a pain in the ass at the same time.
I know it'll be cool when it's done though, can't wait to finish it & start driving!!!

Here's a few more pics...

The side curtains...




It's butt (those are Corvair taillights)




That face :)



The controls.

We're well on our way to 600 votes but still have a long way to go. I re-read the contest rules & realized what's happening. There are 2 classes, Vintage VW Street (I entered our buggy in this class) & VW Off Road. Currently we are in 1st place in the Vintage VW Street category! The 2 top guys are in the Off Road class. At any rate please keep the votes coming in we still need all the votes we can get!!!
