"Tarocco" is a Phoenix Red 1972 VW Standard Beetle
Tarocco: A type of blood orange
Nine months of work condensed down to an eight minute slideshow of
something I have wanted to do since junior high. Though I grew up driving
several bugs back in the early 70s, this is the first air-cooled VW I have
had in over 30 years.
Tarocco sat idle for the last 18 years in MS, with only the front half
(partially) protected from the direct elements. The rescue came at
Thanksgiving of 2009. Originally Brilliant Orange, it is now Phoenix Red
(orange by any account), a color VW offered in 1974 on the "Love Bug"
special edition. That was my first new car back then, but it wasn't nearly
as nice as this now 38 year old.
Uncountable thanks to my step-dad and DK for all their hard work on this
endeavor. Living 750 miles from the restoration, my physical contribution
to the project was very minor by comparison.
Brief Specs: 1915cc, dual Weber 40s, Pertronix ignition, lightened
flywheel, Engle 110 cam, full flow oil system (now with a Canton Racing
cartridge filter, NOT the Fram seen in the slideshow), ceramic-coated Exhaust, performance transmission, body
and pan soda-blasted, fender undersides, firewall and all of the pan
sprayed with Line-X bedliner material, VDO Cockpit Royale Series gauges,
custom 600w, 6-channel JL Audio/JBL tunes, satellite radio, third brake
light, remote locking with alarm, 3-way driver's seat... the list goes
VW 1600 Aircooled Engine DIY Rebuild (Slideshow)
Some snaps taken during my last rebuild in 2006. Case, crank, pistons,
barrels and heads were all good to go again. Camshaft, tappets, oil pump
and all bearings were replaced. The tinware and ancilliaries were cleaned,
detailed and/or repainted.

1776cc VW engine
A short clip of me running the 1776 I built a few years ago. The engine
and just about everything else in the video was destroyed when the garage
burned down 2 years ago. I managed to salvage the internals from the
motor, and it's now running dual Weber 40 IDFs. It is currently installed
in an orignal Meyers Manx dune buggy.
