About the Author

Mark Walker bought his first 1964 VW Beetle at age 16 before he could legally drive. Over 25 years of VW ownership and over 100 air-cooled Volkswagens have now passed by since that point. Mark was the owner and operator of The Bus Station (2002-2013) and Vintage Werks (2006-2007) - both companies heavily immersed in the VW scene that were known for importing classic Volkswagens from around the world, and carrying out sympathetic restoration work. These companies also gained an international reputation for out of the box thinking, high-quality suspension modifications and turning out magazine feature worthy cars. The success and popularity of his business earned Mark the nickname `Slam King'. Mark has written for Volksworld and Camper & Bus magazines since 2012.


It's full of photos and curiously addictive. Octane (UK) --- this is a good book. It's concise and is backed up with lots of experience behind the guidance. Auto Express --- a vital lesson in this book that the classic mainstream could learn from ... More important to restorers than they expect from the title. Classic Cars --- This book shows you how to create a VW with honest, unspoiled character. Practical Classics --- it's a useful resource for those wishing to accentuate their classic's patina.
