I got a text from Shark this morning. He's OK with a little bit of roof damage at his place. He said cell coverage is very spotty and had to go over to the University of Virgin Islands get a good signal. He's going to check on friends and family as soon as he can.

I texted with Ranney today -- -- He and his family are OK-- His House is OK But there is no power at all.... Unfortunately, he says there is a lot of work for his dump truck...

Man this is an awesome build. Wish I would have seen this before I bought my chassis. I would have loved to have my torsion bar raised on my chassis. Thought never crossed my mind when before I ordered the chassis.. love the look of your buggy! Nice job!

Did you lower the torsion at all in the back or is all the drop from rsising the housing on frame?

I just saw that 1320 video too and left a reply that says "USVI does VW's right".
I also left a few links to several VI bugs including Deh Sharks.

I discovered this Manx build thread after Irma. So I'm guessing bugs have been put aside and survival is priority 1.

I left the VI in '89 (former Garden St. area resident) and barely missed hurricane Hugo. I returned to visit several years later and they were still in recovery mode.

Praying you guys can get get back up and running with food, water & power ASAP.

I like this perspective of St.Croix's track a lot better than other videos Ive seen posted.
Reminds me of the hey days of the Bavoni track when Haynes Prescription (pro-mod bug of the '80s!), Dr. Ding VW, Wild & Terrible 'vette, Joe Vogel's altered T-bucket injected BBC, Blackman's hemi cuda, McDonalds sponsored 454 chevelle, Thunderbolt rotary, Bodacious Demon 340 duster, Sinbad's CBX, Pooki's sohc 750 and many others ruled the scene Cool

I was a lil'pikni so never had a ride of my own. But I would show up on Sundays with my $2 for a pat'e & vita malt and watch the races into the night. Then hitch a ride or WALK home back to town Laughing
