Topic: hello (Read 2175 times) previous topic - next topic


hello my name is Tim and I've been a vw fanatic since I bought my first bug 17 years ago.  I currently own this 67 you see above and have been steadily making progress on it.  Paint was done by a friend of mine, If I knew he was going to do such a great job I would have done more body work, but for a daily driver I think the dents here and there just add charecter.  I've been wanting to join a club for years but a very irradic schedule tends to keep me from committing.  But I would like to give it a try.  I work mostly swing shift, and most saturdays in the summer, but i would like to attend a few shows with the car this year, and meet some folks that have similar interest. heres how she's sitting now.

Hi Tim,

  Welcome to our site, glad to have you here and look forward to you becoming a member of the club.
BTW, That is a nice looking bug you have there, mine currently looks like your's did at one time, the lovely primer grey. I have most of the exterior body work done, and I am currently re-primeing it whit one area at a time. I work out of town most of the time, so it is hard to go full force and knock it all out. Once I have it primed I will be doing my own paint job and hopefully have it looking like a new bug! Like I said, I work out of state alot and am unable to make it to alot of functions, but when I do get in town I make all the effort I can to meet up or get to a meeting, so don't worry, if you can only make once or twice, we understand!!
Hope to get to meet you soon and pick your brain about all sort of bug stuff. I have always been a bug fanatic, but just recently my wife purchased a 75 Bug for my birthday and when time allows, I do what I can.

Take it easy, and welcome to the site!!

welcome to the club, dude.
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.
