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.
My 1974 Karmann Ghia
This is my 1974 Ghia. It was a hunk of junk when I first purchased it. Five
years later after taking it compleatly apart it's now my favorite toy. 87mm
pistons too. The gauges on the dash are VDO, but I purchased three "BUS"
fuel gauges from junkyards. I removed the chromes rings and installed them
on the new VDOs. Now they match the originals on the dash.
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.
Original Barn find 1968 GT500 Shelby
This car is completely original down to the tires! This one of a kind find
has never been washed since resurfacing from an undisclosed location in
Georgia. This Shelby is a true barn find and yes, it does start and is
driven on and off it's enclosed trailer to various car shows. The seats
have been changed back to the original ones that came in the car along with
all the SHELBY letters that are missing. The car is a rare automatic.
1965 VW Bug Convertable Barn Find, Long Island , NY May 2010
1965 VW Bug Convertible, original sitting from 78
I have the task of selling a German purchased 1965 Bug convertible badged
at rockers "Karmen" (possibly a European VW badge) for a little old lady,
(original owner). Putting feelers out for price and advanced sale
looking for fast sale at fair price and sell a 1965 VW Bug convertible.
This VW sitting from 1978 inside a garage is in original condition. 81K
showing (probably kilometers). Car is complete, original condition. We have
papers and clear title.
This Bug has issues as any car would from sitting all the years. It is
what it is, luckily in this case.Convertible!!
The top actually looks good, because the sun did not get to it.
There is surface rust on many panels and well as completely rusted thru the
floor, bottom edges of doors, door jambs.
The motor is currently not running, although the owner tells me it was
running when stored. The owner says at that point the motor needed a ring
job as it was burning a little oil.
The car is European, was purchased in West Germany and driven for a few
years around Europe, then shipped to Pittsburg PA, driven there and finally
ended up in a Port Washington garage in 1978; the registration and
inspection stickers are on the windshield from that year.
You motor heads, feel free to email me email@example.com or call
Am hoping that the YouTube video of this car will filter and screen all the
chaff from the wheat. When prospective buyers see the car, all needs to be
done is exchange cash and sign the ownership over. Take a good luck and
make your best offer.
Of course all sales are no warranty expressed or implied at all. Sale is
This VW is sold as is, not running.

BackyardBuild Summer 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
Here is a preview of how the car sits now, summer 2012. I have about 95% of
the bodywork done and have coated everything with 2 layers of black epoxy
primer. Lots more tune up has yielded a good running late model classic VW
beetle. As you can see I have a bunch of work left to do on the interior,
but all the gauges and lighting function. To beef everything up on the
3SGTE engine I had to utilize an aftermarket ECU, I chose the Vi-Pec. The
last part of the video shows what this setup can do. She's fast...
