My dad bought a 73 bug from my cousin. It needs some work and he wants to make it a father/daughter project. Laughing

Thanks! It'll be fun to learn the ins and outs of a bug. The engine is rebuilt so that is one less thing we have to worry about.

Good deal. They are really simple once you tear into them.

That is awesome!!! My first bug was a 73! My second bug was a 73 too! LOL One was a regular bug. Somebody pulled out in front of me and totaled it. I ended up buying the second one, same color, year and everything. Only difference was it was a SB!

I can't wait to follow your progress on this one! Very Happy Congrats to you and your Dad!!

Not sure what dad is naming it. Also not sure what his plans are. At first he says he wants to fix and then sell it, but knowing him he may want to keep it. We will see once we get everything done. He is in China right now so we probably won't pick this baby and start this till May. I also want to work on his bus first since that is a simple fix.

Dad picked up the bug yesterday. He says it runs, but the interior will need some TLC. Should be fun! Oh and I got to name it...Belle. Very Happy

Not entirely true. You gotta worry about the engine every 3000 miles.
You actually have to worry about it now. If you don't know when the last valve adjustment was done, you should do it immediately.

Yes Kyle ...engine is gd from the standout that it's not frozen. We want to drop it, clean it, and tune it. Most of our time will be spent cleaning the interior and buffing sanding out the exterior to get it ready for paint.

Thanks Dion. I love spending time with my dad.
