      Here's my hunk of junk as bought from the previous owner:





      It was originally a 1975 SB La Grande edition in viper green metallic. At least it came with a 2.0L Type IV with weber carbs and a Porsche 901 transaxle!

      CC and Squareback. Two of the five VW's I've owned over the years. I still drive the 69 quite often. It gets the most thumbs up of any of the cars I have.

      It was built by the factory for the street in 1965 (one of two street legal ones...out of a total production of 31 cars. 29 of which were strictly race cars) and has been registered and insured ever since.

      ..currently Porsche powered


      And ya...every time a new cop moves to town he usually wants to meet me and look it over...generally just walking away shaking their heads.

      Headlamps, directionals front and back, backup light, brake lights, license plate light, parking brake, horn, street tires, fenders (they are not original as they have been added recently due to clause in the highway traffic act here which requires cars to not cause road spray....I have argued with law enforcement that I do not drive it in the rain(death wish if u do), but to save the hassle I made little fenders), mirrors, no bumpers required here if they were not originally there (law says you cannot remove bumpers)

      Honestly...this may sound corny...but when I or anyone i let drive the thing the feeling of being Shumacher is unreal....super responsive handling car ...you have an overbearing urge to swerve from sid to side to warm up the tires and the sounds through the dual Supertrapps is phenomenal....I may rework the exhust to a 4 2 1 system to increase a wee bit more performance (like it needs more)


      Currently weight 827 pounds and has 135 flywheel hp ...do the math...theortically 0-60 mph 3.349 seconds...in reality you must feather the throttle to allow only what can hook up through the tires so its probably about 4.2-4.6 seconds...but when sitting 4" off the ground it is quite engaging to drive.
