Don picked up his new Super Beetle tonight. Original owner picked up in Europe and did a little touring before shipping back to the states. Sweet ride but typical damage due to a 93 year old driver. Every panel has a rub. Bone butt stock, well for a couple of days. I like it, the only thing I would do is lower the front. It is a space ship headed to the moon. Oh and for a stock 1600 it is pretty fast.

Nothing wrong with a well tuned 1600. I can blow the doors off of many dual carb setups with mine and bury it at 90, no problem. Some of you have seen that car (green '63) in action.

One piece of advice. Tear the sprayed in foam out of the C pillars. It holds moisture and will eventually rust through.

Might be nice cleaned up and left as is. The McPherson front is a joy in stock configuration. Bushings and dampener should be looked at, though. They have about a 60K life span.

He knows more about these car than you and me combined. Good advise but, he has owned more 411/412 than anyone should be allowed. One should be the limit, he has pushed it.

Kyle dual carbs will only get you so far.

You're in the OC now.

Birthplace of the Cal-Look Bug. You should be in good hands.

Cruisin' up and down PCH is pretty cool in a Vee-Dub!
