Why Gus ?.. well, the gentleman that I bought Gus from, let’s call him Dave, has a son and his name is Gus and that’s that, a little tribute.

The plan is to get Gus up and running, usable and to document the process and have some fun along the way. Dave had brought Gus a long way from where he was structurally, having a lot of the welding done with the funky green panels, but Dave’s attention then strayed to a Kharman Ghia and Gus sat waiting for me to come along to whisk him off and finish the job. ( Which I hope I can )

Gus has sat in my garage for 6 months now.. and we have a plan.. I had thought to keep him as original as he came from Dave and maybe add some flames where the blue had been removed but we will see..
