PostSubject: Hi from Fallon Nevada   Thu Aug 19, 2010 1:29 pm

I have had a Volkswagen in my life, off and on, since 1963. Towed a U-haul trailer from Georgia to Northern Wisconsin, in the dead of winter,
with a 63 bug, without a problem.
Blew an engine in Arkansas in 1967. One hour and three hundred dollars later, I was back on the road.
I have owned a lot of bugs and some fine transporters, but, They allways seemed to be the first things I parted with when times got hard.
Never again Sad
Right now, I have a 69 bug, a 72 square back and a 63 dropside pickup.
I am very glad that I found this site, good to talk with others who have a love of this aircooled wonder. Plus I am finally trying to learn how to wrench, since good VW service centers seem to be fast becomming a thing of the past.
Eva (my wife) and I hope to meet you all at the meetings.
Thanks
Dan

Thanks for the reply. The 63 is a single cab and my daily driver (in bad need of a tune up) The engine was replaced 2 1/2 years age, before I bought it. I must say that I am more than a little intimidated at the thought of adjusting the dual carbs on it.
It does draw a crowd, whenever I take it to town, I will take some pictures and post them.
