1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is temporary.
Volkswagen Bug Custom Flowmaster Exhaust
custom semi stealth piping with flowmaster sitting horizontally adjacent to valve cover then running pipe to exit in front of rear tire. I needed to do this as I like the sound of the Flowmaster over any other muffler and clearance for lowered stanc

62 VW Beetle
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!!!

Dual Carb Subaru Powered VW Beetle Sound
This is the car running. It is almost tuned. I have to remove my coolant filler tank to patch a couple of leaks it has under pressure. I will make a new video once it's back together of the car driving.
