I thought I'd share and offer this. There is a Salvage yard near me that has a good selection of ACVWs. The owner is an VW enthusiast and he still buys old VW's and add them in, there are always new ACVW arrival there. There are probably 75 beetles ranging from the early 60s to late 70s. 30 bay window busses. 10 Karman Ghias. 2 things, 2 T3s, 2 T4s. 2 Vanagons, one a Westfalia. Even a Porsche 914. Also some buggys. There are hundreds of engines and transmissions. 6 trailers full of parts. It is an awesome place to visit and get some great parts. You can get some cool accessories and OG parts

I'm 16 and one way I make some money is to buy and sell VW parts. So, would anyone be interested in me getting parts for them? I figure if you need a bunch of parts, this may be an interesting option since I can make up bigger orders to save you money on shipping. I can offer a bit lower prices than market too since I can get parts in bulk. PM if you are interested. I'm making a trip down this Friday.

Dang it!
I’ll be in Appleton WI the end of May.
If that stupid lake wasn’t in the way it would be a quick drive over.

Yeah, if it was closer, it is definately worth the look. It is called R G Barnum Auto Salvage and it is in Millington Michigan.

I headed down today, I got some cool pictures

I was surprised to see a 62 or 63 convertible beetle at the junkyard

I can run bulky stuff back to the Northeast if there is interest. Interest means cash of course. Sent you email, too.
