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.
Lada hand crank start
I made an attempt of starting my Lada with a hand crank, and it went
smoother than I'd thought. It was unstarted for a week. The preparations I
did before starting, was removing the license plate to access the hole in
the bumper, turning on the ignition and pulling the choke out fully. Of
course I also checked that it was not in gear =)

Hand crank starting a Renault 4CV
That's right... we're not cranky...., we do laugh a lot ......and like to
" hand crank" start an engine. Who needs a starter? We don't need no
electric starter !! This year's 2012 GPNW microcar show was blessed with a
bunch of "crank-pots" .....one being, Terry Cassem and his delightful 1960
Renault 4CV. Part of the Friday night meet and greet parking lot antics is
playing with, and talking cars. Specifically microcars. Here we see a
combined effort on the correct way to hand crank start a Renault 4cv.
1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
FOR SALE (July 2, 2013): SOLD
Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's
chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past,
I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the
car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone
will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones
you'll see in the BugMe videos.
