VW hack in Roswell

Post by CapnLost on Thu Sep 29, 2011 5:06 pm

Hi all, I'm Andrew. I'm starting to get back into my VW after a pretty lengthy hiatus. I have a '67 Westy that *would* run except that it has a gas tank full of varnish at the moment. And it needs RGB/transmission work. And brakes. And metal. Oh, lots of metal. And...and...and...

...that's pretty much why I stopped to be honest :-D But I'm patient, and I'm ready to start chipping away at it again. I dropped out around '06 but used to spend a lot of time with the Peach State Transporters. During this time I was generally "that guy who breaks down whenever we go anywhere." It was good fun but I was always pushing finances to keep things running and stuff. My proudest moment, I won 'Ugliest Bus' at the bus show in Jax Beach...I guess it was '01? Mildly offended the guy I bought the bus from, heh (not the Westy).

The Westy is in way better shape now, but the only pics I have handy at the moment are as I found it. Guess what, I have rusty floors!



I hope to get around to draining the tank and getting the bus running this weekend, and to refresh my memory on what I need to fix. Lots of VWs over the years, just sold my '70 bug yesterday so I'm down to one again. Nice to meet you!

Cool, I've been living down here for three years and the only VW I recall seeing was an orange bay window Westy once on Holcomb Bridge :-/ It's a high-traffic busy busy busy area, I hated driving my bug around here...maybe that's part of it.
