The Pinkback ('72 Squareback)

Hi guys,

Let me introduce my newest aircooled car to the members of this board where I used to spent so much time and gathered a lot of information & inspirations from. Of course there are other platforms nowadays but still I like this forum the most as people here can appreciate other's efforts the most. (having said that my instagram account is sleepair_vw - if somebody would like to follow)

Long story short: this is my 3rd aircooled I own, started with a yellow standard I have totally rebuilt, followed by the red 1302 built from scratch, and now I'm driving this late model squareback from 1972.

Time is flying, I became a dad in 2020 that forced me to sell the 1302 and buy something more family friendly. I'm not a Transporter-guy at all and always had a thing with estates, so I focused on 411/412s & Type 3 Variants. I realized also I was not going to have any spare time for a project car so the aim was finding something I can drive and live with as is. Took me good 2 years to find an interesting car, and when I say interesting I mean the general shape, the extras and, well, the color too... On the other hand there are a bunch of cool parts in it I will share later on. I already did some minor updates and have some plans for the future as well but most of it is just aestethics, nothing fancy. It's not going to be a hardcore germanlooker but still something different from the slammed type3s out there with joy of driving and performance in the focus.
By now also the color is getting to grow on me

I bought her in Germany by the end of 2021 when I was visiting the fantastic Arimighty show in the Netherlands but due to administrative tasks it was delivered only in March 2022.

This is how she looked like when I bought it:
