What's wrong with this picture?
This 1974 VW Beetle required a lot of body work, some fiberglass work and a change of color inside and out.
$4,200.00 later this is what you end up with.
To make this 1970 Bug look like the red one above, we were quoted $6,800.00 Understandable.
This 1974 Karmann Ghia is in beautiful condition, requiring the very minimum of body work, no rust and as straight as can be. Paint quote, over $9,700.00 The prices are from the same shop and less than two years apart. Seems to me something does not add up. Too bad, our cars are displayed in shows, publications, TV, and the internet. Great advertising for a paint shop. But at $9,700 no way! Some other paint shop will be getting my business and advertising.
