My 1962 VW Beetle project finally seeing the light after being in the garage for 2 years while I put her together from a bare shell and frame. I put everything together from bumper to bumper, including building the engine. The transmission is the only item on the car I did not rebuild. Many hours, blood, sweat, and tears went into this car! She should be on the road soon! I can't wait!!!

I spent the morning working on trying to free up the rear wheels. Heated
them, soaked them in oil, and yarned on 'em till I was sore. Then I
thought of a wonderful solution! hahahaha.. Now on with the rest of my

VW DUAL PORT CROSS FIRE INTAKE SYSTEM
Replaces dual carbs.. and messy linkage.Cuts maintenance costs in
half..tons of room for plug removal and replacement. fits in a bus or bug
with clearance for the deck lid.sounds better than duals.. and has crisp
throttle response at any rpm .. no flat spots even with a oo9 dist, comes
to order with your carb base pattern. works well at 40 degrees temps and
above . do people actually drive their bugs and busses at night? easy
