Of course you know Sharky our First Fasty that recently met an accident.

After the accident, I was thinking of repairing her. But when I evaluated the damage, it might not be wise to have her repaired. So I looked for another fastback to replace Sharky. I talked to Jun Lumbre, a fellow type 3 buff, who has five type 3's in his garage. One of them was for sale. A 1966 Fastback.

After we talked, I told my wife, she'll be good candidate and would call her "Sharky 2." I did not know that my wife immediately called my fellow vee-dub buff, Arman Hipolito, and they conspired to buy Sharky 2 to surprise me. They met secretly and consummated the deal.

Arman, HD and others, from the Nips Volkswagen boys (to whom I am a member too), towed in silence Sharky 2 in the dark night and left her in front of our house.

This morning when I woke up, my wife told me to see something outside from the window. To my surprise I saw a Fastback which looked like Sharky 2! I immediately rushed outside to checked her! Yes, indeed, the fasty was Sharky 2! I called all of them and gave my thanks. Aman, you are the man!

Yes, indeed, she was Sharky 2. My wife secretly bought her for me to replace the original Sharky! Now Sharky is back on the road in the person of Sharky 2.

Thanks to my wife, Malu, who really felt the pain I felt when Sharky met her untimely demise. To the Nips boys (Arman, HB, Lester, Jun Lumbre, Kulas, Rene, Gilbert, Bugsy, Poliboy, Jun Ruiz, Hommer, DX Boy, Audwil and others) for helping my wife for the surprise. To the rest of the VW community in the Philippines. To the Araneta Boys (Jimmy, Brio, Aris, Erwin, Raffy, Laurence, Eric, Tito Ed, Tito Babes, Daniel, Mon, Edmundo, RJ, Marvin, Ricky "the Bulol," Jimmy "Tigas" and others) who were always there too.

And of course, to the rest of the forumers at the www.thesamba.com and www.vwcp.org who were there too to give me encouragement and support. Thanks a lot guys!

Thanks, notchboy. We just had our celebration at our home for the rebirth of Sharky in the person of Sharky 2. We called all the vee-dub boys who helped my wife consummate the big surprise. Everyone was happy. We had some good chat, bbq, beers, and lots of food. I'll post the pcitures soon!

The surprise was really a thing I will never forget for the rest of life. Our lives were touched by our Karmann Ghia, Super Beetle and especially (original) Sharky. Sharky 2 will always be here as a living testimony to the great story that I save (original) Sharky once who was about to be wrecked in a junk yard when I bought her, and, thereafter, she gave up her life for me to live another life.

This is a celebration of life! Long live Sharky! Long live all our vee-dubs! Very Happy

Wow! You picked a great wife! Very Happy Glad you're back in the Type 3 scene so quickly and with such a nice example! But, an early T3 isn't a "shark nose", is it?

Thanks a lot, Tram. I am happy too to be back on the Type 3 scene. I'll be having a long day this comming weekend to transfer some cool stuffs from Sharky 1 to Sharky 2 (i.e. Rag top, empi sprint stars, etc.)

Yes, I know, our '66 Fasty look more of a dolphin that a shark. Nevertheless, Sharky was so dear to me that's why I want to have her name back; henceforth, "Sharky 2" was borne! Very Happy Very Happy

thats a hard hit there Dong. I am always looking out when i am driving around here. I been all over the world and i am going to have to say. the Philippines have the worst drives i have ever encountered.

No one gives right away. AND they fell if no one is looking who care, they do what they want. A lack of stop signs over crowded roads and side street with jeepney drivers and tricycles make for a interesting drive.OH yes lets not forget the taxi drivers here. I did not know Cracker Jack's was still giving out licenses.

WEll sorry to see your car taken from you that way after just getting the sunroof put in it. The good thing is you where able to walk away with out getting hurt.

OH YA When do you guys meet up and where?

Man, thanks a lot. I saw the 1968 Squareback you bought in the Alabang Show. She is Hot. I would like to have a Square too.

Well, the traffic situation here in the Philippines is a situation we have to live with, and live with and ~~~~~~~. I guess, most drivers have their own world.

You can join our VW group called The Nips Volkswagen Boys" based in Antipolo Rizal. We meet every Fraiday and Saturday night at Shell Marco High way, Antipolo City, Rizal, That is nearSta. Lucia Mall.

I have another vee-dub group the Araneta Boys. We meet at Areneta Avenue, Quezon City at the Shop of Jimmy Galvez. This one is near SM Center point.

I am also a member of the Volkswagen Club of the Philippines. We can meet, man. I'll PM you my cell number.

Again, thanks. Sharky 2 wants to see your Squareback~~~ Very Happy

On Saturday, 9 July 2007, we removed the engine of Sharky 1 and installed the same on Sharky 2. It was good that the engine was not damaged during the accident; however, the IRS trasmission broke and the same got separated from the engine. In fact, the Bell housing broke. But was is good news it that I am still alive~~~~~~~ Very Happy I'll post some picture later~~~ Cool
