Volkswagen Type 3 Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 2-16-2013
Volkswagen Type 3 Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip The Volkswagen Type 3 (sold as the Volkswagen 1500 and later the Volkswagen 1600) was a compact car manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen (VW), introduced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) and ultimately available in two-door notchback, fastback and station wagon variants.
The Type 3 diversified Volkswagen's product range beyond the existing models — the Type 1 (Beetle), Type 14 Karmann Ghia, Type 2 (Bus) — while retaining their engineering principles, notably the air-cooled engine and the rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The Type 3 followed the Type 1, utilizing a low-profile version of Volkswagen's rear-engined, 4-cylinder air-cooled engine, as well as body-on-chassis construction while featuring ponton styling in contrast to the Type 1's articulated fender and running board. VW finalized the design by 1959 with prototypes ready for testing by 1960. Secrecy was such that even at the 1960 Geneva Auto Show, VW denied they were readying a new design. In 1961 VW announced the new line as the "VW1500".
Production began in August 1961, a month before launch, of the Volkswagen 1500 Notchback, encompassing three-box styling in a notchback saloon body. Production of the Karmann Ghia 1500 (also known as the Type 34 Karmann Ghia) with a coupé body commenced in November 1961 and deliveries started in January 1962. The estate bodied Variant (known as the Squareback in the USA) followed, with the first cars produced in February 1962. Two convertibles based on the 1500 Notchback were also announced with the original models, but did not enter production.

Big Three Auto Swap 2-23-2013
A Short video of some highlights of the the Big 3 auto swap meet.
This event was first held in the spring of 1966 when just a few club
members got together in the parking lot at the College Grove Shopping
Center. The next year it grew to about 200 vendors and was held at the
Sears parking lot in Hillcrest. The event continued there for another year
and then moved to the parking lot behind the old Sands Hotel in Kearny
Mesa. The City of San Diego then decided to ban swap meets, so arrangements
were made to move the event to the Sears lot in El Cajon. As the event
continued to grow, this site could no longer accommodate the huge number of
participants so the event was moved to El Cajon Speedway parking lot. This
site accommodated the growth of the event, but as the parking area was all
dirt and the winter rains constantly turned the annual automotive event
into a mud bowl, a new site had to be found.
With a change in policy by the City of San Diego allowing swap meets,
arrangements were made to move the event to Jack Murphy (Qualcomm) Stadium
in 1980. There the "BIG 3" Parts Exchange has become an annual fixture for
individuals who appreciate those fantastic vehicles of the Past.
There is no charge to the general public to attend this event, however,
there is a stadium parking fee. The shoppers hours are 12 noon to 4PM
Friday, 8AM to 4PM Saturday and 8AM to 12PM Sunday.

HORSELESS CARRIAGE CLUB OF AMERICA
The Horseless Carriage Club is a non-profit association of people dedicated
to the enjoyment, study and restoration of vehicles manufactured prior to
1916. The club was organized in 1937 by a group of enthusiasts in Los
Angeles, California who foresaw the need for an organization dedicated to
the preservation of automotive history.
The Horseless Carriage Club offers membership to collectors, historians and
anyone else with an interest in vintage automobiles and their history. You
do not need to own a car made before 1916 in order to belong. Many members
derive their enjoyment of the hobby by reading about early automobiles in

Yaril's Volkswagen Type 3 - BRtv Episode 3
Imagine yourself back in the Do-Wop 1950s. Now picture what a young car
guy, hot rodder type, would look like. Then take that image, dip it in a
batter of Cuban heritage, add a good dose of upbringing and family values.
Follow that with a splash of love of all things vintage and cool, and
lastly add a great sense of style, attention to detail, and humility. Now
pull that person in the present time and drop him in Miami Florida. What
you might get, my not be too far off of Yaril Quintana.
Yaril is just about one the coolest and nicest people you can meet. He's
the owner of Yaril's Customs out of Miami Florida, and is the builder and
owner of this awesome VW Type 3. He's a hot rod builder and an incredible
craftsman, with award winning capabilities and an astounding sense of
attention to detail. His shop is as clean and as cool and anything else he
puts his name to. Just hanging out there, makes a normal person want to
run out, buy a junker and build it into a hot rod, or something as cool.
This video celebrates his awesome Squareback, and attempts to show a little
bit about the man himself, and what are the principles that drive the kind
of creativity that make a shop like his, a possibility, as well as a
realization to a life long dream.
Let me say again, you could almost not meet a nicer, cooler guy than Yaril
Quintana, with as much talent, humility, and just good core values, as the
ones that drive him.
We hope you enjoy this video. For more on this story and some cool pics

1967 VW Type 3 Fastback: "Inge"
Portland, OR: excellent, nearly all-original 1967 VW Type 3 Fastback.
Third owner, has been with me for nearly 10 years. No rust beyond
superficial surface dings. Pan is 100% solid. Chrome is very good, though
has some minor areas of pitting. Never any sort of major accident (front
and rear are clean), though there is evidence of long-ago passenger side
door repair (done poorly). Glass is perfect. Motor is 98% original and "all
there." Original interior is excellent (no rips / tears; front seats could
use new foams), all correct trim pieces are there, dash is perfect.
Everything works but clock may need attention (regreasing, etc.) Runs,
drives, shifts, brakes wonderfully.
COMES WITH: original delivery papers and early records; original uber rare
*RED TYPE 3 WOLFSBURG FLOORMAT* though it is very well used and has always
had a hole at the heel near skinny pedal; red coco mats, a bit faded;
*extra set of correct Fastback popout window seals* (sourced from a donor
car; not NOS, but very good to excellent condition); original AM radio; NOS
German door seals; NOS Type 3 muffler; seals for turn signals and original
rear turn signal lenses. Also have small box of original parts.
NEEDS: has a slow oil leak on passenger side valve cover; possible new
battery (this one is new but has been driven so infrequently that it
doesn't crank well unless jumped); could use carb tuning or rebuilds and
general tune-up attention; needs new window rubber seals (front and rear);
could use new seals for front and rear trunks (I have one for rear.) I'd
also love to track down some original '67 Type 3 wheels and trim; these
chromies look nice from 10 ft away but the chrome is pretty weak and
starting to rust.
This car is not a show car (yet). It needs to live with a real Type 3 geek,
someone who will care for it and cherish it with the attention and love a
rare survivor like this deserves. I know in 10 years I am going to be very
regretful of this, but right now I do not have the means/time/skills to
maintain this wonderful car like it should be.
[ PS yes, I know I have a typo in one of the last titles... ]
101mm TURBO CTS-V - 1200hp Cadillac!!!
This was probably the NUTTIEST car we encountered at the Pikes Peak Air
Strip Attack - this 1170hp 101mm turbo
equipped Cadillac CTS-V was turning heads everywhere it went. Hop into the
passenger seat as we race down the 1/2 mile raceway at over 180 mph!
1971 VW Type 3 Squareback Wagon - 1600 Dual Port Air-Cooled Flat 4
I thought you might like a look at this classic 1971 Volkswagen Squareback
two-door wagon. The body looks really straights on this one and it's still
sporting it's original interiors. These cars could top 80 mph and return
about 30 mpg fuel economy. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for

132542 / 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/csvxwvo
This cool 1971 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback is an unusual, highly appealing
time capsule that retains its original drivetrain, houses its original
interior and would make any VW collector very happy. This Type 3 has only
changed hands twice in its forty years of existence and was garage kept the
entire time. This resulted in a solid body with factory correct panel gaps
that has never been worked on or taken apart. While this car's paint isn't
concours, it does carry a nice shine and would look great motoring down the
street to any VW show. Open the hood and you'll find the cars original air
cooled 1.6L (1584 cc) 'pancake' engine. The engine bay looks good for a 40
year old car and I'd venture to say that this car has been largely
unmodified save for the two small diameter chrome air cleaners that sit on
either side of the engine bay. Underneath the car, cross-mounted round
torsion bars span the full width of the chassis while an anti-roll bar
connects the cars upper trailing links together. The rear suspension is the
cars original CV joint semi trailing arm system that houses the cars
original 4-speed manual transmission. New correct 15 inch steel wheels with
chrome center caps and stainless trim rings are mounted on wide white wall
165R15 Geostar tires. Inside the car, an all original interior is in very
good shape with only the driver's seat showing any major signs of wear. If
you know vintage Volkswagens, you know that finding an all original '71
Type 3 is almost impossible, especially one that's been this well
maintained. Don't miss your opportunity to own a truly unique car; call
