He tried every VW salvage yard he could find online with no luck. After noticing the Vanagon and Rabbit ones *looked* the same, I went looking for one locally, and all the yard had was a Porsche 924 a ...

My friend just bought a '77 Westy with an automatic, and the shifter handle/button is missing. Does anyone sell new ones, or failing that, will one from a Rabbit or other water-cooled car work? Thanks ...

Thanks. I actually have a nice digital multimeter I've never used, with a complicated dial i don't understand. I just moved to the middle of nowhere by myself and have nobody to even step on the pedal ...

I'll start by saying I have no wiring knowledge at all. I really need to learn some simple skills. Going to go find a test light now. I'm in a time crunch to get this car ready for the weekend. It's b ...

I found a "Kelly's" frame. It says "Buffalo NY" on top. It was a VW dealer, but doesn't designate that on the frame. I found it randomly hanging in a hoarder's barn here in town, a ...

I'm interested in some too. I don't care about the exact size- just some thin whitewalls that will fit my stock '69. I need new tires anyway, but $130+ each would be breaking the bank.

I was driving my '69 Beetle 'vert the other day, and everything was perfect until I noticed a problem. When I disengaged the clutch to down-shift, there was a clunking/jerking. There wasn't an issue a ...

I missed out on his last pair of bumpers, so he emailed me months later when he got another pair. They arrived in less than 2 days, well packed, both as-described OEM parts. Thanks again Mark!

That looks even worse than the one I found in a local cheap u-pull-it yard. I wish I had brought my camera. It looked like it had rusted away in a barn for a few decades, and then the barn burned with ...
