An abrupt end to the 1962 VW project
I spent the morning working on trying to free up the rear wheels. Heated
them, soaked them in oil, and yarned on 'em till I was sore. Then I
thought of a wonderful solution! hahahaha.. Now on with the rest of my
1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
I only put 1 gallon of petrol in her tank and after an initial few kicks
she refused to start until it dawned on me that I needed to pull out the
petrol reserve tap. The engine has no timing marks and she spits back due
to being far too far advanced. She's also very tappety.
The drive out of the garage was my first experience of driving her and the
street scene was the first time of her being out on the public highway. At
this stage she had a very noisey rear axle and gearbox and no interior

Oval Window Beetles - BugsVille Large Collection and Barn Finds
BugsVille was a place of wonder and was by far the largest collection of
Oval Window Bugs most have seen in one place. The place was nick named
Bugsville because there were so many VW's, and in one photo I took I
counted 22, most of which were Oval Windows. It was located in
Southwestern Ontario Canada just outside Tillsonburg before the car
crushers came in and squashed them all. This is just such a waste of
history to have them rust away then ultimately be destroyed. If anyone has
any more photos or stories about this place let me know as I would love to
see and hear about it! These photos are at least 12 years old now and I
thought it was time to put them in a video.

Barn Find 1968 Euro Beetle, First Start.
This is her first attempted startup in 21 years! Of course before I tried
it, I poured Marvel Mystery Oil in the upper cylinders, filed and gapped
the points, rebuilt the carburetor, and replaced the fuel pump, plugs, and
Still it impressed me that it fired up after all those years of sitting.
Pulled this old bug from a barn in rural Oklahoma, where it sat unmoved for
over two decades. You just can't kill these old VWs.
Thanks for watching.
