    I have been involved with VW since the mid 70's. I have owned many VW models over the years. My current ride is a 1964 Beetle that is powered by the 2110cc engine from our old race car. Lots of fun to drive. Hard to stop with stock brakes. I am one of the founders and have been the promoter of the June Jitter Bug VW car show in Niagara Falls Ontario for 33 years. I wish you all the luck Peter on a great informative website for the VW NUT. Keep on Buggin.

    Traded a guitar for my bug that was in pieces in several boxes (it sat that way for almost 10 years!), someone put a 2” narrowed front beam with 2” drop spindles on it , brakes were non existent. Spent some time putting it back together & it’s lookin much better, engine even fired up & ran for a few minutes (needs starter/ fuel system work still). Unfortunately I live in Colorado & the car is at my parents place in California. Goal this year is to get it together enough to have it brought home! My 12 year old daughter would love for it to be her 1st car! (we’ll have to see about that!, lol)

    I’ve been driving a 1967 Beetle for the last five years as my daily driver. I love turning the key every morning and cruising to work or just around the Gold Coast. She “Agatha“ gets a service at least twice a year and a wax once a week. She has a large list of period accessories fitted to her which makes her stand out from other Beetles.

    Lots of body mods, including shaving the drip rails. Candy orange paint with mixed orange and gold pearl flames. Disc brake conversion up front. All new bushings and front suspension. Installed Top Line lowering struts, but just wouldn’t go low enough for me. Converted the struts to coil overs. Now it sits where I wanted it. Mild 1679 engine with dual Scat single barrels. Still working on it, but it does drive....very well. Peace, love and VW’s.
