Yaril's Volkswagen Type 3 - BRtv Episode 3
Imagine yourself back in the Do-Wop 1950s. Now picture what a young car guy, hot rodder type, would look like. Then take that image, dip it in a batter of Cuban heritage, add a good dose of upbringing and family values. Follow that with a splash of love of all things vintage and cool, and lastly add a great sense of style, attention to detail, and humility. Now pull that person in the present time and drop him in Miami Florida. What you might get, my not be too far off of Yaril Quintana. Yaril is just about one the coolest and nicest people you can meet. He's the owner of Yaril's Customs out of Miami Florida, and is the builder and owner of this awesome VW Type 3. He's a hot rod builder and an incredible craftsman, with award winning capabilities and an astounding sense of attention to detail. His shop is as clean and as cool and anything else he puts his name to. Just hanging out there, makes a normal person want to run out, buy a junker and build it into a hot rod, or something as cool. This video celebrates his awesome Squareback, and attempts to show a little bit about the man himself, and what are the principles that drive the kind of creativity that make a shop like his, a possibility, as well as a realization to a life long dream. Let me say again, you could almost not meet a nicer, cooler guy than Yaril Quintana, with as much talent, humility, and just good core values, as the ones that drive him. We hope you enjoy this video. For more on this story and some cool pics check out the whole update on Braggenrites.com

1967 VW Type 3 Fastback: "Inge"
Portland, OR: excellent, nearly all-original 1967 VW Type 3 Fastback. Third owner, has been with me for nearly 10 years. No rust beyond superficial surface dings. Pan is 100% solid. Chrome is very good, though has some minor areas of pitting. Never any sort of major accident (front and rear are clean), though there is evidence of long-ago passenger side door repair (done poorly). Glass is perfect. Motor is 98% original and "all there." Original interior is excellent (no rips / tears; front seats could use new foams), all correct trim pieces are there, dash is perfect. Everything works but clock may need attention (regreasing, etc.) Runs, drives, shifts, brakes wonderfully. COMES WITH: original delivery papers and early records; original uber rare *RED TYPE 3 WOLFSBURG FLOORMAT* though it is very well used and has always had a hole at the heel near skinny pedal; red coco mats, a bit faded; *extra set of correct Fastback popout window seals* (sourced from a donor car; not NOS, but very good to excellent condition); original AM radio; NOS German door seals; NOS Type 3 muffler; seals for turn signals and original rear turn signal lenses. Also have small box of original parts. NEEDS: has a slow oil leak on passenger side valve cover; possible new battery (this one is new but has been driven so infrequently that it doesn't crank well unless jumped); could use carb tuning or rebuilds and general tune-up attention; needs new window rubber seals (front and rear); could use new seals for front and rear trunks (I have one for rear.) I'd also love to track down some original '67 Type 3 wheels and trim; these chromies look nice from 10 ft away but the chrome is pretty weak and starting to rust. This car is not a show car (yet). It needs to live with a real Type 3 geek, someone who will care for it and cherish it with the attention and love a rare survivor like this deserves. I know in 10 years I am going to be very regretful of this, but right now I do not have the means/time/skills to maintain this wonderful car like it should be. [ PS yes, I know I have a typo in one of the last titles... ] AND SADLY, THE CAR SOLD SOME TIME AGO. Still in the great NW, but no longer mine ;-) She's with a good home though, which is the most I can hope for with such a great old VW.
