sleeper vw bug
I took a 60 vw bug that was sitting for 25 years, rebuilt a motor for it,
and took it to the track. Didnt even wash it! to Prove whats on the outside
isnt what counts. Its what we DONT see that does. Motor is all VW with
stock block clearenced for stroker crank, stock crank is welded stroker,
has 92mm pistons to equal 2180, vw heads ported, and dual IDF webber
carbs. mild 125 engle cam. I know its not a super fast car like most other
videos on here, but for what it is, a stock bug with skinny 165 metric
tires, and a stock vw motor with very old hot rod technology, it does
pretty good. The way it is I a ran a 13.41@100mph on the stock tires. I
have since pulled the motor and building 2235 with Mofoco 050 Made in USA

Slammed Ghia meets 3-4" ramp... Fail.
Video that was supposed to show how much effort it is to get my Ghia over a
3-4" ramp.... But, I got wedged, and dad stopped filming, and I was too
busy to care about the video.
Forty Minutes of Slammed Karmann Ghia Fail in Three Minutes.
Tried to get the Ghia out of the garage today without getting any help, so
as to learn a system to get it out without too much hassle. Ended up
spending 90 minutes trying to get it out of the garage, and just when I
thought it was out... Dads Citroen was in the way at the back, and was
frozen to the floor, with a non-working engine. Cue me giving up. I think
next Christmas I'll ask for a really wide set of 5-6 foot long metal ramps.
Damn the 7 inch narrowed beam, and camber at the back, making lining the
planks up an impossible task for a lone person.
