Beetle/bug Pickup project by tricky[_2_]
Hi all for a while now, I have been toying with the idea of making a beetle pickup for me to use for work. It would be more or less a 'standard' pickup design, but with a roof rack capable of carrying full 8x4 sheets . It will probably take me a year (or more) to complete.

6V to 12 conversion q. by Jorge[_2_]
a neighbor with a '60 bug asked me how difficult it is to go 12 volt. I thought the starter was the worst of it. tho you can spin a 6v starter with 12volt. isn't it easier to rebush the tranny and find a bendix that fits the ring gear? where can one get this? TIA g -- Karma ; what a concept!

My odometer has lost its mind! by ChrisKlinger
Filled up just after getting out of work, odometer shows 00621. Got home - straight home - ODO shows 00636. It's a 5 mile ride... No wonder I occasionally seem to get extraordinary MPG. Bet I've been changing my oil too often, too. Chris

I'll post this here, a customer of mine has a rich condition apparently with his 75 FI bug. I've never worked on the FI version, so I could use some troubleshooting help.... any ideas welcome. I've tinkered with Porsche FI from the same era and I assume the fundamentals are very similar hi...

Beutler Sports Car by Bill Berckman
I was reading a car related book called the Encylopedia of Sports Cars. Was reading about a car called the Beutler. They were a Swiss coachbuilder. They did some work for Porsche and used some VWs and related parts in creating their vehicles. The book said that they also built a 4 door VW Beetle....

New to me,,, A "Wild Westerner" bus... by vwluvrs[_2_]
Seems to be a bit of controversy surrounding this colour scheme.. I think the Designers at VWOA were on drugs in 1973 when they came up with this scheme. It is rumored to have been a 1973 only colour scheme, and sold only on the west coast of the US.. Any one have any knowledge of them (other than...
