I just watched the show now I can put my 2 cents in first it was a good story and it will bring more attention to our cars , I guess Ron and I must be getting old I heard them say that it was a frame off restoration I thought that met that you removed the body from the frame you replaced or rebuilt everything on the car new wiring rebuild the frame transmission and any other thing on the car that was bad, this is how we (The Domeck Brothers ) do a frame off restoration

I haven't seen the show yet but I was invited to be on the show as someone with VW knowledge, I'm glad I couldn't work it into my schedule now.

sounds like a neat opportunity that unfortunately would have most likely frustrated you during the process.

I bet it's already all rusted out again. Will Castro is a joke.

I saw the show last night for the first time.

I have never done a restoration job and I have a Ghia so I would never claim to know anything, however I didn't think the restoration was much different between a Ghia and a Thing when I came to doing it right.

As soon as I heard "will have to make the parts because you can't get them anymore" I should have turned it off.

Watching the engine removal made me cringe.
