What p,s me off by John[_28_]
Amongst other things just got a couple of clips for the sun visors of my T3. The whinge is if a manufacturer has gone to the trouble of making a mould for an item etc how much extra work would there be to add two "non return" wedges as on the original instead of one. As it is they tend to not...

Waiting for spring. by Foo Fighter
the top is a little torn on the Cabriolet. so I leave it down and just wait and wait for a sunny day. even if it is a fairly nice day I take it out. Let people think old ACVW's have great heaters. I even left the wiper blades off. I don't like the way they look. I do want another 50 years out of...

car donation? by Sam[_10_]
Does anyone have a good idea of where in the San Francisco Bay Area I could donate my 1965 Ghia? It needs some body and cosmetic work, but is a great daily driver. I would love it to go to a good home, so I was considering donating it to a tech school that could use it as a practice car. I...

76 Bay steering box seal by Bluedc[_2_]
Hi, my steering box is leaking. I have read that you can replace the seals but I can't find anywhere to buy one - does anyone know where I can get one. I am in the UK but will buy from anywhere. It would also be good to hear from anyone who has replaced their own seal.

Almost related: a portable radio by Tuomas
This is the way hobbies get out of hand: ;) I was delighted to find a gray Blaupunkt Lido (made in 62/63) for the grey bus as it has radio cover plate recycled for windshield washer button and I didn't want to change that. So a portable radio and this one fits to style...

Carby bearings by John[_28_]
I,ve noticed that now I have to fairly regularly work a bit of oil into the choke pivots or the chokes seize up on my T3. About every 6 months, not a big deal. Just get some light oil on pivot near where it enters body of carby and wriggle things for a few minutes. Never happened when I used...

distributor problem again by Steven Rogers
Once again my distributor problem is back. I seem to accelerate ok but steady speed driving and the engine coughs and sputters. Disconnecting the vacuum line to the distributor and the engine runs much better (although not perfect... slight loss is power and acceleration). Does anyone have a...

Distributor problem by S R
Good morning folks. Thursday my poor abused 74 bug had a rough time making it home from work. Idle was fine, accelerating seemed ok however steady speed driving (any gear, any speed) and she would sputter and cough constantly. Friday morning I checked my gap and timing, they were ok. Took the carb...

It's interesting to be back and see some of the same names from the late 1990s when I first became aware of RAMVA. I got my 67 Beetle in 1998 and those were interesting times in the VW hobby.I now own 3 -67 beetles and a 64 Beetle with the crank open sunroof. My Father passed away 2 years ago and I...

da poor man's porsche ? by Lamumba
it's amazing how many people don't even know what a Karmann Ghia is. I tell them , Oh, it's a VW. Yesterday someone asked if the engine was also in the rear. I said I hope so. Well, the engine rarely falls out. I have heard of engines getting stolen when left on the side of the road. Run out of...
