I am driving across from California back to New Jersey in my 1964 bug. Just blew a motor though coming into Indiana. Not sure if you can help much but if you have a motor sitting around I could buy it off you and get this thing put in to complete my trip. THanks and let me know if you can help me out.

Hi Cheryl... I see that you and I are the only two in the valley on the Air Cooled Rescue roster. ???? In your bio, you mentioned a good VW mechanic. Could you share his/her contact info? I just bought a 76 Riviera, and will probably be needing some help. Thanks.... Kent

ditto on all the others w/ Karma & Kudos for Colin - do yourself and your VW a favor - book Colin for a visit to your door yard on his annual Itinerant Aircooled tour & pilgramage. You will be amazed at how well your ACVW can funtion when tuned properly w/ a true guru by your side!!

Colin can help you over a short email more than most can help you in person.

The importance and helpfulness of Amskeptic's services cannot, really, be overstated or recommended highly enough. You owe it to your car to have him pay you a visit.
