BackyardBuild Winter 2012 Turbo VW Bug preview.mpg
I finally got around to shooting some real-time video as the cars sits today. As you can tell there are many videos between the youtube footage and now, I will try and hasten their delivery. The white floppy things late in the vid are a couple of Tie-Wraps subbing for windshield wipers. Going fast sure creates a lot of wind noise.

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.
