Hi, My name is Shawn, and I am new to the Orlando FL area. So far I love it here!

Here is my 67...And before I get yelled at, I bought it this way. Actually, I like it, and its pretty fast too. It has a 1776CC engine in it, recently built by Fisher Buggies. As with any older car, It has some issues, however, thankfully, they are minor little ones.

I have plenty of changes coming for it.

I just got it, and have a lot to do...I really want to clean up the inside, as there is way too much clutter in there, and I am moving that fuel filter to a much better location. I hate seeing them in there like that...Not even clamped.

Shawn

This looks very much like a 67 posted for sale today on Craigslist here in O-town.

Actually it is...I got it in haste, without really thinking about needs of the family...

I have 2 18 yr olds and one don't fit in the back, and I go almost 350 myself...so its not as roomy as I remembered...

I bought it because i always loved the beetle, and I was hoping like mad it would work...But I want the car to go to a good home. I plan to keep doing little things to it as I go until the day it sells...If it sells, great, if not, then maybe a diet is in order...lol.

Shawn

PS...I did test fit a bus, and I knew that wasn't happening.

Now that's interesting...I'm going to Lakeland on Sunday to see if I can locate a shifter, and a few other little tidbits. I'm sure I will find a few other things as well. Lord know what I really need. I know for a fact I need a clutch cable installed, I have the cable, just have to figure it out.

I would also like to find two front seats for it, and maybe install correct tails on it, and lose the LED ones.

Shawn

PS, Do you ever ride down Silver Star? I am right by the lake.
