About 4 years ago Petri and I went up to some dudes shop in b-town to buy some air ride parts. We got talking and he has Steves old 67. He was doing a full once-over, so the 'fuschia' is long gone. So I guess the car is still in the GTA.

Hey Guys. Thanks for thinking of my build. I haven't. I am real busy. I have been working on my basement. My wife just gave birth to our daughter things are great she is healthy and the wife is doing well.

Greg(tuned perfection) has been telling me two children is a different ball game. Get your shit done. Free time will be tough to come by, I guess I am in trouble. Ha, Ha. I guess we'll see.

Thanks for the kudos on the first build. That was a car I learned on. I built it in highschool. I did alot of stuff right and a ton of stuff wrong. I had a ton of fun driving the snot out of it though. I drove to a ton of U.S shows with it with out a hitch.
Those were the days.

Thanks guys. This site keeps me motivated. I'll be back on the bus soon.

Steve

Let me know if my opinion was right. Depends on you too. I am pretty hands on with both my girls. Help a lot with dinner, showers (yah- now showers, thank gawd no more drawn out baths!!), bed time routine. Usually so tired by the time they go to bed I fall asleep with one of them.

But like a few guys have posted on here, spend an hour a day in the garage, and you'll get shit done. All I can do right now, and I make it work. Try it. When your home renovations, that bring much more return on investment than your VW renovations, are done of course. Smile

Steve, your '67 was the shit for sure. I remember it clearly, likely since it was a similar build to mine, just more extreme. Thank goodness you were normally in the '67 under class and I was in the '68 and up class. Or you would have kicked my ass every show. My '68 is up for sale again on Kijiji, since the dude is buying my bus. But my old '68 still basically looks the same as it did when I built it. Each owner updated it a bit though.

Anyway congrats on the newest member of the family! =D> And hopefully you will be rolling the 21 with mine and Pete's shortly.

Had a bunch of pics, and gave them to a friend to scan them about 10yrs ago. He moved to BC, and we lost touch.

I think I still have the negatives. I'll have to dig around.

Reviving this thread from the dead! Steve, update us!

Steve approached me earlier in the spring about making some replacement butterflies for his 40IDF carbs. The ones he had, had a hole drilled in them (usually done to fix improperly tuned idle circuit) and the edges had been bashed and mauled. Not being able to find any off the shelf, he started searching for other options. Well, he came to the right guy! A few years back I'd run into a similar problem with a pair of 44IDF's and had made the fixture to turn them. Butterflies are round, but not perpendicular to their plane. Weber's (in my experience) are 78* from 180* as stamped on their surface.

Steve, I'll see you Sunday my man!

Why buy when you can build?
I've spent hours on parts that you can buy for pennies.

So this bus is rolling (or about to)?! I thought it was far from it. Can't make it to V'fest. I would've liked to see it in the 'flesh'.
