      VR6-swapped Beetle. I have a Carfax and it will show that the motor should have between 80-85k miles on it. I've put around 30k on the swap and it's my daily driver, and anyone could fly in and drive it home.

      - 12v VR6 swap
      - lightened flywheel, K&N intake
      - Magnaflow catback
      - Short shifter
      - 2002 square bolster leather swap from a Sport turbo
      - 18" BBS RCs in red
      - clear turns and other lights
      - FK Sportec suspension
      - updated to later steering rack with new tie rods

      It's rock solid and will go cross country if you wanted it to, and I know this because I made a 2800 mile round trip last year with no problems.

      I need a sale because I've already made a deal for an air cooled Beetle. If I were going to stay with water this Beetle would definitely be what I'd keep.

      Everyone where I live knows nothing about VWs and every call goes like this:

      "Hey, is your car an automatic?"
      "No."
      "Oh."
      *click*

      OR

      "I'm calling about your Beetle Bug Car"
      "I don't know if you know about New Beetles, but this one's a VR6 swap... blah blah"
      "Oh, so it's not stock?"
      *click*

      A/C isn't working because it needs two lines put back on. I was told I should be able to put those on, pull a vacuum, and refill and be fine. It never bothered me till last summer but my job sucked both schedule and money-wise so I left it alone. I have time and money to now, I guess, but I'm ready to get back to air cooled cars.

      All the big pieces, i.e., the condenser, drier, compressor, etc. are all installed on the car and I have one of the two lines needed to finish it up.

      Are there any possible issues with title and registration as the car has been modified. Not sure why there would be, but thought I would ask. What kind of mpg you getting daily without hammering all the time?

      I don't know why there would be any reason titling it anywhere except maybe California. The title is clean and has been registered both in Maryland and here in Kentucky with no problems.

      I say I don't hammer it most of the time but that's not what my riders say. Last time I did the math I was averaging 26 mpg, which is what my GTI VR6 also got. I stayed around 30mpg on the interstate.

      Here are a ton of old pictures from when I was selling it last year for a different '79 convertible. Obviously the wheels have changed but otherwise it's pretty much the same. I got that rubber crap off the top of the door panels too.

      I hadn't washed it then, but I have now

      I've always wanted a VR Cabby but I always wanted a VR Beetle more and now I'm going back to air cooled cars. Your Cabby would create quite a stir in my podunk town though, and that part is pretty tempting.

      I'm outside Owensboro, just east of it, so maybe three hours from Lexington and it seems like it's about an hour to Elizabethtown. How in the world do you know E-town?

      Someone to bring money for this is my hope and dream, haha

      Remember, you could always just buy it and ask forgiveness from your wife later. Maybe you found it in Afghanistan?
