for my first time on the highway, my VW bug gave to me...1 blow engine, 2 angry owners, you get the rest.
So yes my engine is toast. I'm looking for a rebuild place in the New England area.
Any place recommended that specializes in VW's?

Do it yourself, that way if any thing go bad or is wrong you only have yourself to blame.

I'd love to, but unfortunately, I do not have a garage.

Don't need one, a moderate-sized desk in a clean area works fine.

Drain the oil outside and clean up the parts before bringing them in.
...I split the case inside on a plastic washing machine drain pan; worked fine, but if you have a significant other / roommate they may not appreciate.

I found the bug-me vid on engine rebuilds super helpful, might be worth a watch if you're on the fence.

Otherwise, there's a business listing here - https://www.thesamba.com/vw/shops/
And someone more familiar with the New England area might be around in a bit.

Not sure where in NH you are, but there is a place just over the boarder, John's Air-Cooled in Winchendon, Massachusetts.
