My daily driver is a '73 VW Camper and I also drive a '73 Super Beetle. Aircooled is the only way to go.

i had a 72 that the body was almost mint but the engine had like 800,000 miles on it and the rings were just gone i wish i didnt sell it but then again i dont like cars

Re: Both My Aircooleds

It a 1974 Standard Beetle.

It "probably has about 400,000" I built the speedo so there is no way to really know.

In the last few years it got a new front end, rebuit german driveshafts, new heater boxes and muffler. rebuilt motor, new wheelbearings, and has been converted to four wheel disk brakes,

And thanks to a new "german" carb this month I'll be eating a lot of rice.........

now I really need tires, the newest ones are from 90...........

Re: Both My Aircooleds

when you see them here in ohio, the heater boxes, floor pans, and fenders are rotted away from the salt the state puts down during the winter. i had a 74 auto stick.

Re: Both My Aircooleds

If you saw them here it would be the same, Minnespolis salts so bad the cars are all grey in the winter.

This car ony comes out april first to november first

Re: Both My Aircooleds

Proper rails are not that bad, Tube steel chasis, and there is no shortage of engines and transmissions, "even new oness" no cars get destroed for that. I woudnt mind buiding one myself someday,

I just hate to see good sheet metal cut up.

Also every year I get pestered by kids who want to cut my bug up for a dune buggy or a baja.

Its almost funny, they think I don't know what I have and they try to bullshit me, I always get a certain ammount of bitter humor over the idea that I can't possibly undersatnd cars enough to know what I have.

Re: Both My Aircooleds

man those bugs are dangeruos

Re: Both My Aircooleds

Xyplestop Florbledo /

nah, 16 years and I'm still here

You are thining of the old swing axle ones, that ones IRS

Re: Winter Salt

The salt is so bad in Boston that I bought a second set of Mag rims for my Newport on eBay to use in the snow instead of my Chrome ones for next season... I'm lookin for some studded snowtires too.... I know they exist cause I got one on a wheel I bought from scootertherapy in Madison WI. If anyone knows who sells these please share :P

Re: Both My Aircooleds
