Glad you found the site man. Feel free to post wanted ads or ask about any questions you have.

Sounds like a sweet ride- would love to see some pics. That is quite a span of time, what prompted you to pick up another VW?

Bugs on the Hooch
https://facebook.com/events/1600198993536086/?ref=98
This is a free show! Though I guess your car won't be ready yet. Crying or Very sad I'll be there in my bus, say hi if you make it down!

Y U Buggin
http://yubuggin.com
This show is still a few weeks away so maybe you can have your car up and running for this one. And you can drive it around the speedway!

Owners that it. You know much about this bugs history. I was going to look at the 58 green ragtop Callahan had for sale but it sold before I got their. Saw this one on Craigslist this thing seems solid. It has been hit on the drivers side fender and someone put a latter fender on their. Also need to fix the rear deck-lid hinge or find a new one. Im not sure if im going to change the body to tub seal. And a few more things.

I dont really know anything about it.  I just remember when Callahan had it, it had a stock width adjustable beam and the widened rear smoothies.  I think he said his Grandfather found the car.

Just a couple pics from his facebook....
