This was the last photo we took of Walt Berry, taken last November at the Pasco BugJam in Dade City, Florida. Walt had driven his sleek Fiberfab Avenger GT12X from his home in Marietta, Georgia to Dade City, Florida for the annual VW show.

We are most sadden to report the passing of our friend, Walt Berry of Marietta, Georgia. To most of us, Walt loved building and driving VW-based kit cars and conversions, such as the Domus pickup Bug. We always enjoyed talking with him about VW kit cars, their design, how they went together and drove. For Walt, he loved finishing up kits that were never quite finished, and putting them on the road for others to enjoy. We believe Walt was 83 years old, although he seemed much younger in spirit and energy. RIP Walter, we will miss you greatly.

In the September 2016 issue of Hot VWs (on-sale now!) you'll find this beauty of a 1956 Oval ragtop, which was once a rusted hulk. But after a few major setbacks, and so many long nights in the garage, it is finally "that Bug" that Arizona's Aaron Swinney always wanted.
