When: Bout once a week when Im on my way to the Barber Shop
What: Today was a white single cab, Normally is an red rag sitting out there.

Talked to the owner of the shop and he drives the single cab in the winter because he has a gas heater in it, the rag is for the warm days, he let me stroll around in the back, and he has a good collection of old split buses, bays, supers well you know pretty much everything just sitting collecting rust, they are all resting off the ground. Inside is a nice little shop of parts and what not, they have a few things being restored inside the shop. I thought it was a treat that he let me check it all out, and the kicker is hes an old Devil Dog. I stop buy there every once in a while to pick there brains and bug'em Laughing

Thats Toby, cool little place. I bought my old 67 Dx from him. He is a bit pricey on parts but has a good bit of NOS stuff in there! There is an upholstry shop around the corner no more than a mile from him that specializes in VW's. Also sells cars and parts. He is a dealer for West Coast Metric. Called Autowerks.

How do you keep yourself from not slamming on the brakes, pulling on to the side, jumping over the fence and looking around. I couldn't be a truckdriver. I would be late to all my stops. Then when I got to my destination, they would open the trailer and say "This is only part of my shipment". And I'd say, "Yeah, I had to make room for some vw parts, you can go pick the rest of your crap up at the vw junkyard".
