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...

Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt?
Took 45 years to bury it and almost 2 days to dig it out. Have a look.
Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the
foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging
condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since
1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free
given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for
45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE
US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one
you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053

Karmann-Ghia anniversary 50 years 1955-2005
On the 14th of July 1955 the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was presented to the
public. Members of the media and business were invited to the Kasino in
Georgsmarienhütte, which is close to the Karmann factory in Osnabrück.
50 years on, Karmann Ghia friends around the world are invited to take part
in these jubilee celebrations at the historical location, invited by the
big Karmann Ghia clubs of Germany with the support of numerous sponsors and
helpers. Georgsmarienhütte is situated a few kilometres south of
Osnabrück in northern Germany.
This is a short private movie of me as participant - it is not the official
video off the anniversary.

1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Restoration
This is a 1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia I recently did the finish body work
and paint on. The sheetmetal replacement was performed by Kelly "Metwiz"
Brown. Color is Porsche Guards Red. The car is going back to the owner for
re-assembly. Music by The Wind-Ups.
1972 VW Karmann Ghia
1972 Karmann Ghia Convertible. Great little California car, same owner for
the last 8 years. Solid, straight body and very comfortable interior. Car
appears to have had a couple of color changes, it was originally yellow.
The body is very nice with very little filler and no rust. The passenger
floor shows some rust and will need to be replaced eventually if the car is
to be driven in the weather. Otherwise, drivers side is fine. The black
cloth top is in nice condition as is the rear glass window. The interior is
also pretty nice though the door panels are warped. The car starts and runs
well. It shifts nicely and drives straight. The brakes are responsive and
the suspension functions properly with good handling. Car shows 6K miles,
the actual miles are unknown.
Owning a classic VW is a great feeling! You'll get thumbs-up every where
you go, and you'll soon realize these cars have a personality all their
own. If you've ever considered buying a Ghia, or if you've had a classic VW
in the past and want to rekindle that joyous, nostalgic feeling that can
only come from a classic Volkswagen, then this is the car for you. Not to
mention the extremely low cost of ownership, great gas mileage and the fact
that these cars are only appreciating in value. See it at
