Not much else to report, my car has been great!

Damm zack u got cahones bro. Spotted a patina bug headed over the pass just as the weather got real bad he passed me in a traffic jam at 10mph. It was lookin clean like who ever built this rig made it to be driven daily. I lost him in the traffic but as I drop off my niece in rifle I see him again just cruise like he knows what he is doing. Just sit back and chill and enjoy the drive. Zack has got this he is going to be a Vw driver for LIFE. GOOD JOB John and Gretchen. Raised him right?Gretchen JonesModeratorMarch 24, 2018 at 8:15 amPost count: 1371

I’ve been driving Zacks 66 – Ruby we call her – as my around towner for awhile now!!! This car is a little work horse!! One of those old reliable bugs and engines that just keep chugging along 🤙🏼
I spent all day yesterday at the shop giving her some much needed maintenance and love 😁
changed the oil, changed the tranny fluid, found a loose nut/drum on the right rear and tightened that back up, JJ tightened up the clutch, cleaned up the Fuchs and put a new center cap on one that I lost, aired up all the tires … tightened up the windshield wipers, JJ helped me with a stripped screw and turn signal housing, reattached the arm rest on the drivers door… cleaned the air filter, and JJ tuned the carburetor up a little… lots of little stuff that I keep adding to my list finally got done yesterday! 😁🤙🏼😎
it was cool working beside a “brand new” 66 too! Tom’s and Zack’s bugs are almost the same car 😁
thanks for your help and shop/lift space JJ!!! 🥰
next on my list… super glue the horn ring and new tires at some point!

I believe there was at least one good horn ring in one of the boxes of stuff I brought down a while back. Might take some hard searching to find it though. Been a couple of years.John JonesModeratorMarch 22, 2023 at 6:54 amPost count: 13384
Oh there’s a few good horn rings.. she could just swap it.. she will after the super glue fails…🤫🤫🤫🤫
This car has been awesome!!! Zack drove it all through college. Back and forth over the mountains many times!!! Ruby has been a true road warrior!!!
Now Audrey drives ruby!!! I love how my kids can share a car!!! I love that my kids roll around in a lowered bug with Fuchs😎😎😎😎😎😎✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅✅😏😏

I’ve been driving Ruby tons!! Even as she started sounding like shit, but still started right up everytime! 😅
JJ took her for a drive one day and told me we were pulling her engine that day 😅😅
well today Robert and I tore the engine down all the way and the #1 rod bearing is real bad, all the rod bearings seem not great… it was all worn out in there… saw a stamp that said this motor was built in March of ‘97!! So it did pretty damn good considering that!! It was in a herbie car Zack bought before he had Ruby, then it went in Ruby about 7+ years ago😎
Finally made it to the top of the list for a re-build!!
