New Project

Our new project
I have wanted a VW Bug since my parents got rid of theirs in the 80's. I was so excited when T and I decided to start looking for one. We found this one a 1968 VW Beetle. We were hoping to find a 1975 since that is the we both were born but all those were either just shells or junk. Oh well, we might have to try and get a 1975 VW Bus instead.
This one does looks terrible but the engine is pretty sound. Although, we did have a fun time getting it home. We were about half an hour from the place we bought it and an hour from home when the fuel line came loose. That was fun here it is 9:30 at night on the side of the freeway trying to get it to start. I was pretty glad T was able to fix it enough I could coast to the next exit and get to the gas station. We temporarily fixed it enough to get home. I was glad since I was driving it. I think I also forgot to mention that the breaks were iffy so ... well that is a longer story. The point is it is home and ready for us to work on it.  Next time we are towing.
We plan on doing the interior first and hopefully get it painted in the spring or summer next year. I am so excited I can barely stand it.
Hope you all are having a great summer.
