Hahaha… I love this bus! It’s actually a 17-year old Suzuki van underneath the cute Japanese bodykit. Looks like a toy car on the road. Too bad it didn’t drive very well. I guess it’s still a Suzuki afterall. Nice to see such cars on Singapore’s streets – will certainly put many smiles on people’s faces.

Just sold the car to a new owner. I’m sure he’ll have his fun and enjoy the car in the days and years ahead!
I put my beloved bug for sale to see if it’ll fetch a good price. The response has been good. Lots of people have come to see it and many have been impressed. Let’s see what happens.
Here is a contact I picked up from a fellow beetle owner in Singapore. The business card actually says “Specialist” in all kinds of Volkswagen vehicles. I’ve not tried them out before, so please check them out properly. If anyone has any experience, please feel free to share here too.

The other accessory I bought at Xin Zhong. Last time, I got the wrong ones (meant for the 70s models) – the result would have been a “raised” eye lid. Good thing I could exchange. Now, finally, they’ve got stock of the 60s eye lids.
Got them fixed at OVP for S$10. Thomas did it himself too.
More “Herbie” looking than ever.
Thomas’ assistant was also very nice. He helped me tuned up the car a bit after I gave him some feedback about my fuel consumption. Great guys at OVP!!
I couldn’t wait to put up my new white wall tire inserts. So I skipped lunch and went out in search of a shop that will help me put ‘em on. Believe it or not, the first shop I went to refused to do the job. Disappointed, I went in search of another. Thank God the second shop did it, and for a reasonable fee too (S$20 for the deal). Nice!!
The tires are taken off and deflated before the inserts are put in place.
Check out the new look. I love it!
