i got it yesterday. im picking up front wheel cylinders, a fuel pump, and points from clyde tomorrow. i may need help with the cylinders as ive never done that before. it starts right up everytime, but needs a little help running right. i fixed the timing and that helped out ALOT. i know it could probably use a carb rebuild, ill wait and see if the fuel pump fixes it. im excited.

lauren has already started the whole "my bug is cuter because...." wars. im thinking we are gonna be fightin some.....and ill win cause MY bug is manlier!

and i typed that cause she is watching.

Hey, Tito! Nice car. Looks like we've started a trend. A couple of years back, ever other car in the club was white. Now it is blue 63's. Are you sure yours is a 63? Rear turn signals are early models.

Can't wait to see it in person.

3rd brake light? Is this desirable due to the size of the stock brake lights?

Congrats Tito!! She looks sweet. I finally got my '66 Beetle back from Joey. I'll have it up there at the next meet. If you need some help with the brakes, let me know. I'm going to be replacing my wheel cylinders/master cylinder soon also.

Also got my '64 Single cab running. I need a master cylinder for it and should be road ready after that.

Word up!!
