Introduction-Hello


Hello All,
     Sorry if I put this in the wrong section! emoticon


My name is Adam, I'm from Scotch Plains, I came across your board awhile ago with the intention of always joining it and finally got around to it! Thought I'd just say hello!

Re: Introduction-Hello


Sure!

this is a picture of my 1968 Bug

Image

My '68 was my first beetle, and me not knowing much about body work and mechanics..i had the car fixed for me, and this was the end result. I use this car pretty much every day, in truth this is my very first car i ever bought, and i've have had alot of headaches with her at one point almost to the point of just getting rid of her, but in the end after having the help of my dad, and Pegasus I enjoy driving her every single day!

and a picture of my 1974 bug- excuse the pictures i was editing out the bumper as this is the only picture i have of it as of right now from the PO.


Image

I guess you could say after i got my '68 i litterally got the "bug"...I bought this in late August, just for tooling around, and actually for the transmission, as it's hard to locate Autostick parts these days...[although there is a guy on the samba that has a crap ton of AS parts for sale now..]

this car was a so much fun to drive home, my girlfriend was following me home after i bought it and i was comfortable going 70 on one of the major highways with it.

after we got it back to my family's house, I drove the car as my daily for a few month until I decided i wanted to get it a bit more solid,

Once the spring comes my: girlfriend, my sister's boyfriend and myself are gonna be cleaning the car up and hopefully get it up and running by the summer. it needs a few things, but this car is trying to be done on a budget.

after getting my '68 autostick professionally done, i wanted to attempt to try my hand at this first hand for the most part.

Here is my overall idea for the '74
