Dan: This is Jack Nielsen from Simsbury, purchased the PA50 motor from you last summer.
When I got married 50 years ago my wife had a blue beetle and she said that was the only reason I married her. We drove that bug up all over the east coast and I used it for years as a daily commuter into NYC. One night I got rear ended and pushed into another vehicle, pushing in both the front and rear bumpers. Well I had never dropped the collision insurance so the insurance company paid me $500 for the bug. The vehicle still ran, so I removed the bumpers and brackets and installed 4
ft lengths of 2x8 lumber instead. Drove the vehicle for a few more years till the motor finally gave out. Dan the bug ran great in the winter snow and ice. They are great vehicles and I would recommend getting one. Look on YouTube for Mustie1. He does lists of work on repairing and restoring old VW’s. Good luck - Jack
