Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

RED BARON "The Fastest VW on Earth"
Irwindale California 3.14.2010 Drag Day, goes 121mph in the 8th mile. I
followed the crew back to the pits where they found a bent pushrod. Still
a great job and a great car. Legendary.
Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the
foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging
condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since
1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free
given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for
45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE GIVE
US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have one
you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053

A modified VW bus to die for? - well it's killing me!! The long haul begins;
Major flat six custom build from a wreck! Bus had been left to rot at the
back of a barn for 6 yrs. It was going to be converted to a burger bar :(
Didn't relish that idea so I'm now in the middle of converting it into a VW
/ Porsche hybrid. Shouldn't get into too much of a pickle? It can't be
that hard . . . can it??
My T'rusty steed is no longer FeO2, having replaced everything below
knee height [to a girraff] and strengthened wherever neccesary. All
sections made up in galv wherever possible + every weld fully treated. I've
had the new engine in the back just to make sure it fits [it does - JUST,
but had to re arrange a few ancillaries to allow it to slot in!] but took
it out again to set up for the conversion and any little niggles.. ha ha
man have there been some! Glad I did; now that it's sorted; it needs
chucking into the back of the bay though I need 2 progress some more mods
All drive train is matched 911 [the 915 gearbox cost me the same price
that I paid for the bus!] and lines up really well. I've strengthened the
chassis already whilst doing the renovation or should that read
'resurection'? Have also encorporated quick release features into this
engine swap should it ever have to be removed in the future for repairs
etc. Still a long way to go before Mubbsi hits the streets, but when she
does circa 2008/2009, the sun is just gonna keep shining! Even if I had
decided not to go for the custom conversion and just stuck with the
standard re-build it would have been worth it; KEEP THE AIR COOLED's ALIVE
DUDE'S .......you know it makes sense?!:)
To the VW purists out there turning uncomfortably in your beds I leave
you with one thought . . "Would you rather have seen a burger-bar"?
If this vid drives you then check out the two follow up movies, part 2
and, er oh yes, part 3. Part 3's pretty scary, don't go there unless your
prepared to get your fingers burned?
If this vid ain't your thing then your prob not reading this anyway?
Oct 2010, have just uploaded an updat vid 'VW Bus - nice bay but no beach',
check it out if you want to see my busses progress? If not, no worries :)
Nov 2011; my how time passes?
The last video showing the completed build is now posted - check out ' VW
custom bus finally hits the roads, 5 yrs on! This bus rocks!' video to see
and hear the final result!
Hope you enjoy it :) Drop me a mail and let me know sometime.
