Welcome to the asylum!

Welcome Steve, converting from swing to IRS... you don't mess around do you :wink: . A fair amount of work but the results should be worth it. You might also run into other things you might end up wanting to do also... so be prepared!

Hi all and thanks for letting me join this forum.
I dont own a vw at the moment but I'm looking at may-be building a replica 356 using a worn out 74 type 1.
Stumbled across this site while researching beetle parts and engines.
I've not had much experience with beetles but in past life's I've been an MOT inspector. I spent a few years re-building old jags here in the UK and in the States and a lot of years building, re-tooling and installing machine's in engine plants.
In amongst these different jobs, I've also had and lost a couple of workshops repairing old and new cars.
I'm on a steep learning curve and hope to be able to put back in as much as I take out.
Not played with cars for a few years, and I'm now a locksmith based on the Essex riviera UK.
Thanks
Mario

Hi Im Bill from Illinois (not chicago) Im definitely new to the vw game but i am a Harley tech so air cooled engines are not unfamilar to me, however vws are lol. I just bought a 63 baja total restore for a great price. Im so curious how to make them fast and fun the hard part on mine is done. But I am a gearhead at heart and even with the bigger engine and cam,it still seems nowhere near the feel I thought it would have. I will be reading and studying all I can love the sight so far. Thank you

Hello People.

I was on the site a few years back. I sold my VW but now have gotten back into the fun of owning VWs. I have a 1956 Oval that is being built for me as an over the top street rod. Have recently bought a 1959 Splitty panel. Am starting the process of getting it back on the road. It will have a late model engine and trans along with a new suspension. Nothing really wild and crazy. Just want it to be a nice bus to cruise around.

Hi all, I’m Tristan and I’m from central PA. I currently own 3 vws, a turboed 73 super, a 72 standard Baja, and a woods buggy I have for racing in the stock class of the Line mountain off road series. I’m going to be looking at turbo set ups to compare to my own build along with many questions I’m sure. I am also looking to find some more support on my suspension set up with my woods buggy. I come from an area where vws are definitely still around, but I really have always lacked a solid mentor for the last 10 years of working and owning these things. Most of my knowledge has come from forums like these, my own research and a lot of trial and error. Thanks for having me!
