      Almost as hard as replacing the Turbo encabulator in an automatic transmission
      Thats why I am glad my beetle has a manual trans!! I had to change one on a buick once and it took 10 men 4 days to get it done. Thats why I drive a manual trans... That and the fact that it takes 115 and a 1/2 horse power from your motor to make an automatic change gears.
      115 and 3/4 if that engine is less than 100c.i.!

      oh well, fun while it lasted...

      the V10 in a buggy part was believable though(I've seen some crazy stuff up at silver lake, so it's not far fetched by any means), right up to the 17000rpm part, so I played along with the wanting pics...

      Yeah I hear you..as it sits right now I have had over 70 cars from my first 68 SS clone nova when I was 16 to everything from a Renault le car and even a 66 comet GT vert when I was 22...and lifted? Well 3 toyotas with 35-37's and even a 500 hp 13 second 06 LS1 Sierra...now a D max on 37's and more to come I'm sure!!!!

      Trust me you you have plenty of time to enjoy cars...or just to own something reliable,vw's just aren't high on the check list for that.

      Shell, my cousin owns the place, I do all the books so I have to handle all the numbers and PAYMENTS for the project. We been in business for 7 yrs now and it's a fun job because you never know what coming down the drive next, its different everyday.It has took bout 2yrs with the economy the way it is to get the project where it is now. We hope to be done by June weather permitting.

      Folks dont understand what it take to run a business, It will consume your whole life if you aint careful.

      Progress on your shop looks good man!! Looks like the dc in the background is in good hands.

      project prospect...64 ghia, all original, pretty sure its matching numbers(havent verified that yet), runs, needs brakes and metalwork. very tempting...I'd really like to have 12v and a bigger motor/trans combination, narrowed beam and decent drop, then weld in gussets and whatnot for 3pt seatbelts in the back for the kids(5 and 2, I'm an overprotective dad), but since this is possibly all matching, I'd have a hard time tearing it apart like that...

      You guys know you want to vote for me and tell all your friends right? That way I can win a gopro and make some quality videos for everyone else to benefit from

      Scroll a little down and you'll see my vote pane...I'm up against an Audi.

      I got a PM complaining about the post in the slammed beetle thread, the post where he put that blue one up 20 times in a row.
      I deleted 19 of the pictures, leaving his comments and one of the pics. I sent him a PM telling him what I did.

      good news/bad news kinda day

      bad:
      well, i finally went and looked over this ghia today...and whats lurking is major rot. the cell pictures i received (the ones i posted) don't show half of the problem areas on this poor ghia. all four corners of the main body are wasted, the headlight buckets are about to fall out, and there is even a hole up along the body line at the back of the hood by the antenna. It was locked, so I couldn't get in to pop the hood and decklid, which at this point I'm kinda glad I didn't, because I'm sure it wasn't exactly pretty. it's original paint from what i can tell, and the interior is original. it's simply just too far gone for me to tackle. someone else might have the time and skill to handle it, but I honestly don't know enough of how the ghia's are built panel-wise to tear into it like it needs to be. i'm pretty bummed about it...i had my hopes way too high on it i guess.

      good:
      the guy i sold my 73 beetle to has a 66 sunroof beetle sitting in a barn not far from town, I'm going into this one a little less...eager...so hopefully i won't be as bummed if it's a ishtbox.

      the search continues...
