oh, ha the image loaded this time
havnt posted on vortex alot but decided to start so hear is a look at the dubs that ive had and the 65 that i am currently been putting alot of time and money into. i will post a build thread of my 65 to keep you all updated on my resto
my 2002 audi tt 225 quattro
my 97 jetta glx
and my current project 1965 beetle SLAMMED
I have 4 or 5 of those TT motors in my shed..My neighbor is an Audi/VW tech and he's constantly getting cars,parts,and s***..He has a few 8cyl. engines stock piled...I never even knew audi made an 8cyl.
Dudes weird...holds on to stuff for ever then dumps it all and starts over.
I picked up this '61 Beetle (German) in West Bend, WI last Monday. It's my first air-cooled and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from it. It currently has a 1600dp from MOFOCO (MILW, WI) with less than 1k, but the electrical is stock 6v so there are issues with the battery constantly getting sucked dry and I'm sure other problems will come along. Instead of spending the time and money to upgrade to 12v, I'm looking to sell this motor and try to find a nice rebuilt stock 1200. I'm not trying to make it faster so I don't have much desire to adapt the 1600. I just want to get it running, maintain it, and maybe give it a little drop. Otherwise, I feel this car is perfect the way it is.
hey 71...is that your old ride? my buddy Rony bought it from some dude in Fla and absolutley loves it...freshed up some stuff here and there,put a killer bamboo headliner and floor mats in from my buddy..he made em out of scratch....Ronny added a few more bits.
love that f--kin thing!!!
here's mine as of the new rendition...
