Yeah! Them Cadillac buggies are super rare!
Yeah. I’m thinking I might be replacing that early on. Might take some time though. Can’t get it on the garage (full of stuff for the animals) and has been raining just about since I unloaded it. Still uncertain of just what I want to do with it.alykatParticipantOctober 9, 2021 at 10:32 amPost count: 675John JonesModeratorOctober 10, 2021 at 6:38 amPost count: 8200

Saw that Ryan Rodriguez won another short course race and Donnie Donovan got second..👍🏻alykatParticipantOctober 10, 2021 at 7:44 amPost count: 675
John, just gonna flip it then?
Not certain. These are a lot of fun (had a couple down the line) but I hate the idea of needing to wrap it up in tarps for the winter as I have no inside place to store it and open air driving this time of year sucks. Also still working on getting the Bugatti kit streetable and with my hand problems everything takes 10 times longer than it should. I guess if I could turn a reasonable profit I’d let it go, but at the moment I keep thinking about how much fun it will be next summer.John JonesModeratorOctober 11, 2021 at 6:38 amPost count: 8200

Thanks John. I know you would, and I really appreciate it. Days like this I really miss the old horse barn. No electricity and no heat, but it did have a concrete floor and a roof so I could store stuff inside and not be working in the dirt. Plus all the parking space outside. I have been slowly trying to work a deal on a T3 driver, so we will see how that goes.FranzModeratorOctober 11, 2021 at 12:47 pmPost count: 4405
Chris Schwartz in B.C. Canada assembled his Ruiz Okrasa with Porsche linkage and tin that we detailed for him. Looks gorgeous! Inspired by Pete’s Karmann build.BBWBParticipantOctober 11, 2021 at 4:50 pmPost count: 1111
Beauty! Same colored , cloth covered wire I use on my old XS650.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.WAY2COOLParticipantOctober 12, 2021 at 5:25 amPost count: 335

All credit goes to Franz and his vision! Stuff like the 356 linkage, fuel pump, filter & coil bracket, along with lots of other details….none of that was ever on my radar. That man can do amazing things when you stay out of his way!
I installed my engine almost 3 years ago to the day…October 10, 2018. About 14,000 miles on it since, and I still love it. 62* F this morning, high today of 78* F, no chance of rain. The Ghia is sitting in the parking lot outside my office right now. Snapped this photo over the past weekend…it’s aging well I’d say:FranzModeratorOctober 12, 2021 at 10:25 amPost count: 4405
Thanks Pete. Chris wanted you to see it. He is in love with your ghia.
