Here is an introductory vid to my new project car. A 1964 vw bug with 84k og miles. had been stored in a barn for the last 10 years. Haven't done much to her besides a major tune up, brakes, new master cylinder and lowering the front and rear. I still need to get off my @$$ and get the drop spindles installed up front
1966 VW Beetle - Inaugural Drive Around The Block
The car is no longer lowered this much. The original beam was a shockless
6.5" narrowed adjustable beam with 2.5" dropped spindles. The rear was
also lowered one notch. It now has a stock front beam with 2.5" dropped
spindles, and the rear has been brought back up to stock.
Check out my blog ('66 VW Beetle Project):
It's been 11 months since my '66 Beetle arrived from California. Today
marks the first time I drove it on the road. It's not done yet, as you can
see in the video, but I'm getting close. Pretty exciting!

because these videos were kinda boring. Thanks and I will get working on
the next one.

How to lower a swing axle VW with DropPlates, similar to drop spindles part 2.wmv
Please see the latest and most comprehensive installation video:
This video demonstrates the proper way to lower an air-cooled VW and shows
how easy it can be to get your ride to drive smoothly even though the
vehicle is lowered. You can do it the right way! It is part 2 in a 4-part
series. The vehicle in focus is a swing-axle Volkswagen that has the short
torsion bars, but soon the racing spring-plates (DropPlates and
RaisePlates) will be available for all air-cooled models.
My good customer Sean from Hawaii says that his ride is the best it has
ever been. You can find this vehicle and my name mentioned in the
center-spread of this the latest issue (March 2012) of Hot VWs. If you want
to know what other people think about Atomwerk Drop Plates then pick up an
issue and open it to the middle!

The Volkswagen Type 1, more commonly known as the Beetle, Fusca,
Coccinelle, Vocho, Bug, Volky or Käfer (German), is a compact car,
produced by Volkswagen from 1938 until 2003. Although the names "Beetle"
and "Bug" were quickly adopted by the public, it was not until August of
1967 that VW began using the name in marketing materials. It had previously
been known only as either the "Type I" or as the 1200 (twelve-hundred),
1300 (thirteen-hundred) or 1500 (fifteen-hundred), which had been the names
under which the vehicle was marketed in Europe prior to 1967; the numbers
denoted the vehicle's engine size in cubic centimetres. In 1998, many years
after the original model had been dropped from the lineup in most of the
world (it continued in Mexico and a handful of other countries until 2003)
VW introduced a "New Beetle" (built on a Volkswagen Golf platform), bearing
a strong resemblance to the original.
In the international poll for the award of the world's most influential car
of the twentieth century the Beetle came fourth after the Ford Model T, the
Mini and the Citroën DS.
