Re: 62 RHD Samba on Volkszone

i was tempted to buy some racks for it but looking at the last picture in that old ad im glad i didnt.

Your crew cab is a peach! im looking for something a lot cheaper though so i can justify it sitting around un-loved!

i have a nice puck to go with it if for another £2500 if anyones interested
