This is Dorus   


That's my wheels, my daily driver, though she's spending the winters, that we're spending Down Under, in a big shed between caravan trailers and other old timers.

She used to be an ordinary Bug until 1984, when a guy called Dorus cut her in in half and spent the rest of the year rebuilding her to a pick-up, as the Americans call their trucks. Of course i better like the Australian way of calling them 'utes', short for 'utility cars'.
