Hello, I'm Eric. I started 1967beetle.com. I also own Lane Russell, a leading supplier of VW parts for your classic Volkswagen restoration. I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Wow, this is some serious restoring. Nice! Keep up the good work!

  2. i was impressed that anyone would attempt such a restoration–Gareth says that in the UK a person normally can expect to replace the first 3 inches of a Beetle when restoring! Robin Snook and Peter Ferguson were very fortunate to have found ’67s that needed far less fabrication. Kudos to Gareth for this fabulous job. I can’t wait to see the completed car! jay
