Actually it did! :D

Hi there!
I'm the owner of the Radbak (hence my name here with an added C).
I'm from France near Paris.

This car is a looong project wich will never be finished (by me).
It's a too long story to be told here, but in few words:
I started the project in 91, and gave up just after Bug jam 2000.
(It won Best Modified Type3 and Volksworld special award, not bad for an unfinished car).
Since then, I have drove the car maybe 2 times just a couple of miles, changed the front beam for a Type1 one and the car stays on my garage the rest of the time.
So it still perfectly new (and unfinished :roll: )

I've no more place, money, tools, desire to finish it, so I'm thinking about selling it.
That's how I found this board, just after a google search about my car.
(Thanks for the pics Danny Lord! :p )

Here some pics I took after the type1 beam conversion 2 or 3 years ago:

I need to put a new battery and I will take better pics in few days...
If anyone interested by the car, I'm open to any serious offer...

here is a link with pics and specs and mods of the car (not updated):

PS: Is anyone having the Volksword issue covering BugJam 2000, I would love to see a scan of it!
Any pics of my car at Bugjam 2k is welcome too!
(of course my camera broke at the event, so I've got no pics of it :( )

Anyone else having trouble seeing these?
I checked the URL, got it on my browser, added it into the post using admin privileges, and both showed up.

I'll do the same for the others if you guys can't see them.
Maybe my security settings are odd?

Very puzzling!
Dave.

Yes, they're on now. Still don't understand what the problem was, as the link worked when removed from the page, and then the original worked when back on again!
