1965 Sunroof Sedan for SALE
My good friend Dave called me up a few weeks ago looking to sell his 1965 Prairie Beige Sunroof bug. This car has been posted on my site since last week and there have been numerous calls and emails inquiring about it. This is a stellar car that is great as a show car or tootling around town. Many visitors have come to the shop in awe of it.

1969 Delta Green Sedan
If you are in the market for a perfect daily drive bug, this ’69 is it.

This car we received already painted, perfect for a daily driver or a first time bug or a cruise night show car. Motor was removed and completely inspected, each cylinder pushing over 140psi which is great. All tins were repainted with gloss black, manifold cleared out, re-welded and painted, and my own NEW firewall Tarboard was installed into the engine bay. I think I am gonna start selling these tarboards for the VW folks out there. Please let me know what you think of it. If you would like a set give me a shout.

I have a full ad page for this bug that you can VIEW HERE. I give all the details on what we put into this car along with FULL HD VIDEO and Photo Gallery.
Please call us at 845.290.9900 to inquire about either bug or email me

I am tossing around the idea of putting up a forum section on my site centered only around the “Vintage Stock BuG.” This is one of my ways to keep that Vintage Movement Alive, steering away from that custom look that we all see time and time again plastered on our limited magazine coverage. I would love to hear your feedback on the matter, would it clutter my site? Too much going on? Or could it be an enlightenment? haha =o) LMK

Well it is that time of year again for some of us and we have to put our lil babies to rest for the winter. So how do we go about doing that? Well I did a small video on it a few years ago that you can check out HERE.

Many will put their bug up on blocks or jack stands for the winter so the tires do not go “out of round.” They will drain all fluids from the car as well or put in a fuel stabilizer to keep the gas fresh or prevent corrosion in the fuel lines. I will be posting a video soon in regards to ethanol in our fuels and how it can damage a classic cars fuel system.

For me, my bugs stay in the garage for the winter, but I drive them or run them at least once a week to keep everything going. My motto is, these cars were made to run, not sit. If the roads are not full of snow or salt, get em out there and stretch their legs, your bug will love you for it.

Until then, have a great weekend,

Chris Vallone
