New to forum - NW OKC

Postby derbug » Mon Nov 11, 2013 10:31 pm

New to this forum, but not new to Volkswagens
In the mid 70's managed and owned a VW repair shop "Der Bug Shoppe"
located NW 10th and Council Rd.
I have a 73 Thing tagged, running and drivable .....but will be updating
the engine ... rear tires too big for near stock engine, dual port, really do not
know that much about the engine, for Thing was running when I traded for it.
I have a 73 type 1 bug, which is my bucket list car to turbo, which will need
a near total restoration
I am a former member of the Volks Club Of Oklahoma City
many years ago
I restored a 74 Bug for my daughter about 4 years ago, she drives
it daily to work, 40 miles one way, black with chrome stinger, no bumpers
Looking forward to the Volkswagen Community at this forum
PS My good friend joined this forum the other day, he has the white 68 Type 1 Bug
He also was a member of the Volks Club OKC before he moved to Phoenix Az.

The only t-shirt I have left for my VW Repair Shop
art work was done by Dudley, one of my customers back in the day

Rear tires 265-75-15 this photo, have replaced with 235-75-15 with coil over shock on front,
now only 1 1/4" drop in the front
