Moyie Springs mud bogs May 2009 Part 1
Moyie Springs, ID, is the Sturgis of mud bogging for eastern Washington,
northern Idaho and western Montana. Just a little bit here I recorded with
my camcorder- trust me being there you would see a lot more! Background

Detroit Mud Run 1994 2/3
Part 2. Detroit Maine. Tricky track for some reason. Mudosaurus gave up the
VW bus transaxle (skimmers need automatics - one gear is very limiting)
for a chevy powerglide 2 speed with 6000 stall converter and trans brake
and a ford 9" rear axle with aluminum spool. This cut the times almost in
half (with the Nitrous installed later
on) When driving up to the starting line the engine would often flood out
and take awhile to clear up, I found out later that the carb would shake
from vibration and dump fuel. A stiffer carb mount would have probably
fixed the flood-outs. After installing Nitrous oxide later in 1994 the engine was damaged
from a series of unfortunate events so I replaced the VW beetle engine with
a 350 chevy V8. Even with the NOS it ran slower times than with the VW
engine. The front end is 1973 VW Thing front spindles and ball joints with
fabricated control arms and VW Rabbit steering rack with modified tierods.

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

Hyper Bug 1641cc turbo/nitrous VW Beetle Drag Car
Shot this video this weekend at Farmington, NC. The Hyper Bug has been
around for A LONG time, but this was the first time I have seen it with
this engine - 1641cc, no frills turbo
with Nitrous. I didn't expect much...boy
I was wrong. The car actually went much quicker than this run, but I missed
the first pass because I just didn't realize what I was about to witness!
