Saved from the crusher.

I got a lead on a decent 72 Beetle from a friend that runs a tow service. $900 in really Good shape. Only needed points and condensor and tune. Replaced leakingpushrod tubes. Seemed to be recent rebuild on the engine. Was super clean inside and the heads looked new

Going to make her safe before any engine mods. Had some 83. 944 front and rear brake parts staring me down. Sent them to Lanner for him to work his majic. They look fantastic and the rest of his kit is well thought out, and straight foward. Also, will be using the rear brakes from the 944.
