Before I start, we had a small scare this week with my father, he suffered a mild heart attack.  Not much work got done this week, I apologize for that, but thankfully he is up and running and in good spirits, he should be home by this weekend.

 

Parts 3 and 4 of VW Seat Upholstery, Making and Installing

Last week I mentioned a 2 part video on making and installing your own seat upholstery.  Well they have come out with two more parts for your viewing pleasure, parts 3 and 4.

Take a peek here.

 

Our August Open house Show/Gathering is this Sunday Aug 5th.

This Sunday Aug. 5th we will be having another Open House VW show gathering at my shop in Congers NY.  Come one come all from 10am-1pm.  Bring your air-cooled ride, picnic, family members, whatever.  We are here to have fun and enjoy the summer air with our VW classics.  See our latest projects in the works!  My 53 ragtop, the 1967, and the latest Build-A-BuG projects will be on display.  

22 Burts Rd. Congers NY 10920 10am-1pm, shine only event.  Any questions please email me chris@classicvwbugs.com or call 845.290.9900.

 

VW Site for all Semi-Automatic VWs

Many people call or email me in regards to info on the Semi-Automatic VW that started in 1968.  We have come across the semis from time to time in the past, but for the most part we do not work with them anymore.  If you need a good site for Semi-Auto resources (because they are scarce) checkout www.auto-stick.com

 

Latest 67 project pics are up here.  Motor is in, should be drivable by this weekend.

 

 

Until then, Have a great weekend, hope to see you at the gathering on Sunday.
