I’ve loved the VW restocal style for a long time now. For those not into veedubs, it’s kind of like taking a nice stocker, dropping it right down for a killer stance, and adding a whole bunch of period accesories like visor, venetians, roofracks and so on. I had my old beetle as a daily for 8 years and sure enough it got some whitewalls and a roofrack, and in the end full taxi signage as well. The roofrack was actually super practical, I moved all kinds of stuff with it.
I finally got round to fitting a roofrack to our EK wagon yesterday. Sure it’s not going to be everyone’s taste, but it’s a little different to all the other early Holdens you see running round and I love it. And it’s always easy to take off if I get bored of it. I chucked some stuff we had lying around on it and took it for a quick shake down test and everything stayed put. The sunset made for some great pics too, which was a nice bonus.
