It all started in the winter of 1988/89 at the age of 18 when Louis built built his first car, a 1967 lemon yellow Cal Looker which was a feature cover car in the June '89 edition of Volksworld Magazine. Although it was no show winner it did receive a fair bit of attention at the time due to the overall concept of following the colour scheme from the outside right through to the inside.

Fast forward 22 years and just after hitting the big 4 0 midlife crisis mark in 2011, and with New Beetle's being fairly cheap now, he thought it would be great to recreate the concept, but with a future retro twist.
