Rebuild of the beach buggy featured in an earlier video here. The chassis
was holed and I replaced it with another from an early sixties beetle.
Chassis was cut down by about a foot to match the body and fibreglass body
was repaired and repainted. After it was re-registered as a road-legal
buggy I also repaired the leaking push rod tubes and repainted the engine
Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW
Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief
US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome
mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics.
This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full
feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com

Beach Buggy - A trip to Scotland
Mick bought a Beach Buggy on line, the seller lived just a little South of
Glasgow in Scotland, so we borrowed Chris's Ford 4x4 and Peter's trailer,
and headed North one Friday afternoon. We encountered sunshine and showers
on our trip both going to, and coming back from Scotland.
We stayed one night in the Fantastic Sandford Arms in Cumbria, and the next
day we met three of Scotland's finest gentlemen, Robert, Alan and Graham.
Mick and Richard wish thank the Sandford Arms for the excellent
accommodation, hospitality and food, and to Chris and Peter for loaning us
the vehicle and trailer, and a very special thanks to Robert, Alan and
Graham who have made us think even more highly of Scotsman and their
