Im comitting Blashemy!

I am going to buy a 73 VW beetle, as i cannot find a cheap enough ford truck to build. my 1990 f150 is currently in the tranny shop and they have nicknamed it "the nightmare" truck, seems that he previous owners installed the incorrect flywheel and dipstick+tube on the truck before i bought it, so now the shop is having issues find the right parts.

as for the VW, im going to keep it the baja car it already has started to be, its not 4x4, but itll be fun and cheap to learn on whole i keep looking for a mid 70's ford 4x4 to build.

i hope its ok to post a vw note here...

PEACE

I post GM notes here all the time. We're pretty easy going. Just understand we're going to give you crap from time to time for VW posts!

When you tire of the Vee Dub, let me know, I might **** and moan to the wife about how I need to create another lawn jocky from a functional vehicle.

I dare you to wheel a Vdub baja, I'll have a tow strap ready to pull you up the rough stuff. Just poking fun, I dig the ideas of a baja 1000 prepped VW, to cool.

The way things are running around here, I might trailer drag my Bronco to SMORR (someday) with a DODGE, so its all good by me.
