    I read about this Chris Vallone and his company, Classic VW Bugs, this evening on foxnews.com
    (http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012/02/20/vw-fan-finds-success-restoring-classic-beetles/?intcmp=features)

    Chris restores Bugs. But he also has dozens of VW restoration tip videos on his YouTube channel and via his website, http://www.classicvwbugs.com/

    A great resource if you are working on a VW based TD.

    Excellent! Wish I’d had that rear window replacement video 30 years ago when my ’71 Beetle’s back glass was vandalized.

    This makes me nostalgic for my first car, a 1967 Bug.  But I was young and sold it, thinking I was moving up to a four door Datsun, after having the motor rebuilt and body repaired after it was hit by a Land Cruiser on a rainy dark night.  What a mistake that was to let it go.  Had company sedans for 15 years (boring) and then minivans and Ford Taurus’s (boring times two) with the family growing up. 

     

    On my own now, I finally got some fun ones to drive.  Sure wish I had held onto that ’67 though.  I bet a lot of us say that about our first car.
