About

Back in 2000, I had the misfortune to to take a prescription that I couldn#039;t drive. I sold the car I had at that point (one black 5-speed Cavalier — a transportation appliance at A couple of years went by, and I doctors. The new guy prescribed something for my condition, so I needed wheels again. I could: A) spend on a cheap used car that just blend into the or, B) Find a really decent set up the way I like it. Now THAT car doesn#039;t in. I found this #039;66 in Denver, CO, on eBay. The engine had rebuilt by a nationally-known Corvair shortly before the previous put it into storage for about ten It came out of the rebuild capable of 220 horsepower down to the pavement. Not bad for 164 carbureted cubic inches! It had new tires all around. I won the auction, and out with my wife to drive it A

fantastic road trip, and it half as much as shipping it have. It became my daily for the next three years, in late #039;05, I had it in for state at a friends Corvair restoration While it was up on the lift, I got to see just how rust the car had underneath. I decided at point that it had seen its winter of Pennsylvania road It is now my nice spring day car, and a to drive. It still draws wherever I go with it.

UPDATE: I had to sell my beloved in August of 2009 due to the nation#039;s economy. My overtime had gone and and my wife lost her job due to a work-related that they refused to responsibility for, so we just justify the expense of nearly to insure the third car in a two-driver Our mortgage was a couple of months so sadly I took a friend up on his offer on her. As promised, he has her the complete cosmetic restoration she so

deserved. Of course, she didn#039;t anything mechanically — I kept her up 100% mechanically. he gave me right of first so if he should ever decide to her, I get the first opportunity to buy her

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Coupe

picture of my #039;64 Karmann coupe. A mostly original purchased 5/21/64 from a VW in Boca Roton, FL. The car made its way to the area, and then later to OH. I bought it from the fourth

I#039;ve modified it for street/strip while keeping all of the original Someday I hope to restore it to stock. But for now, I#039;m it in its quick state.

Future call for a much wilder displacing 2332cc#039;s. The car should be of mid-to-high 11 second quartermile with the new engine. Its a 12.80 currently.
