Well, then...


In other news, it looks like the '58 Beetle may be getting a drive train. I'm waiting for a transaction to be perfected. It will result in some improvement to the Gold Bug, such as new mirrors, seat belts and a clutch and trailer hitch.

The engine options are a stroker 1776, a 36hp for racing, or an electric conversion. Transmission options are a 5-speed, or a rebuildable 4-speed that would qualify for the 36hp Challenge classes. The 1776 is really a truck engine, the 36hp is a case only—needs everything and I'm thinking what if I don't get another chance at an electric.
