Hey all... looking for T3 SQB owners in the DFW, Texas area. Haven't seen a whole lot of type 3's roaming the streets. Just curious if there are any owners out there... speak up and make yourselves known.

Rare breed, hahaha... that's what my wife always says about me! Sadly, I think you are right though... T3 owners are few and far between around these parts. Wish there were more cause there are so many things I wish I could bounce off of another local T3 owner.

I'm in the Dallas area and have a fasty, Type 3's are a rare breed in the DFW area.

I'm no expert but I'm guessing the spike during cold running has everything to do with the roofing tar(20-50) in the crankcase.

I daily drive my '67 square in Houston around the Johnson Space Center area. I've been here a year and a half and I've never seen another Type-3 on the road. I see a Type-1 once every couple of weeks and I saw a bay window bus today at lunch!

I moved here from Santa Barbara, CA where type-3s and air cooled VWs are commonly seen daily.

I have two squares here in Arlington. One is my daily and the other is about to become a truck. The daily is a '72 and the other is a '73. Hope to see you around.
