quote="ttandrobin"]Hey everyone. Tim here from good ole Riverside Ca. Been watching the site for a while, figured it was time to introduce myself. Newest project is a 1960 Beetle I inherited from my father. Hasn't been on the road since 1980. It's gonna be a lot of work. Worth it though. I look forward to talking to everybody.[/quote]

Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.

Yeah no 36hp. Pop replaced it in the early seventies. Not sure what happened to it. Still have the crashbox that went with it in the shed.
