hey, im brand new to this forum and also to the VW community. I just purchased my very first VW and it happens to be a 1971 Beetle. its awesome but i need to know what im dealing with. I have a fair understanding of the aircooled engine and the beetle as a whole but because its so old i need to know what to change, what to look for, and what to upgrade. and little things this car does (ie: back seat catching on fire). i will be fixing up the car myself so anyone with any information would be greatly appreciated amd extremely helpful. thank you.
