My 78 Super Beetle Convertible Champaign II
KC_Cliff
A buddy of mine pulled this out of a barn a while back. I'm in the middle of doing the floor pans right now followed by new carpet and a headliner, then suspension. Motor seems to run pretty good, not planning to do much yet other than a tune up. The Bosch Airflow Control fuel injection seems to be running properly and I have been studying up on this system here including the compatibility with the pertronix module. Seems like it will work but I am not convinced yet. There is not a trigger plate on the AFC FI. Looks like the ECU reads RPMs from the coil... More research to do... All fun stuff!!!

'78 Super Beetle Convertible
Don & Jan Mintun
This is a picture of my lovely little bug. It's a '78 superbeetle convertible. It is getting a make-over right now because a previous owner side-swiped a guard rail. I got it for my sweet sixteen birthday. I came home from soccer practice it was in the driveway!!! It is my project car that I have wanted since I could say volkswagen. My dad & I are fixing it up & all we need right now is a door. If you, or know anyone who might, have a door to fit my cute little car PLEASE e-mail me. We are in desperate need of a door!!!
