Senior Project: Restoring 1973 VW BUG

$3,825 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 41 months
Cole Ruscitti  CHICAGO, IL
Goal: Modify and rebuild my 1973 Volkswagen Beetle with help from like-minded car enthusiasts over the next 3 months for my 2013-2014 senior research project. I raised the money to start this project during the summer of 2013 and generous sponsorships have kept it going. I need an additional funding push to finish the project by March 1st, 2013

Share: On my blog, I share the process, stories ad resources used to rebuild the Bug

Demonstrate: I will demonstrate the core values of my 12-year Waldorf School education by creating a senior project that includes using my imagination to design the Bug modifications, my mind to fuel the process, my hands to build the car, and my heart to add beauty and a sense of community to my overall efforts

The Bugs first question when I greeted in the garage this morning was: Can I have some new hub caps for our school presentation next week? I reminded her firmly that hub caps are not a dime a dozen and our budget was very tight. She begged and pleaded---every June Bug wants new "shoes" for her big day. I told her I would think about it...... Is it never ending with these Bugs? Now the bug wants shoes! But She is pretty irresistible, and she has been so good lately. What do you think?
