so you want me to just start a new thread under Hot Rod Basics and title it Volkswagen

or Classic Volkswagen.. then i dont have to worry about the stupid new beetle

haha.. it has a front engine.. and a radiator

ugh

hahaha

when i read the post ffrom sean's about the kids lickin the TV.. there is a commerical on Cartoon network where a little charcter walks around saying TVTVTVTVTVTV.. then he licks the TV.. and he says TV tastes funny.. and walks off screen

i was laughin because it reminded me of it

the carb on my current Vw says 34 PICT 3.. and the 71s were the first to have it ..

oh well

is is possible for me to get about a total HP somewhre beween 100-200 HP in my bug without drastic changes?

like heads

exaust

but i want it to look stock..

not with the rear hood off and the exaust comming out the side..

i want it to look like a stock bug..

and wait for some one to step up to the line with me and my bug.. and i want it to go..

but not drastic...

You could do it with a bigger engine. But a stock look means giving up better carburetion and exhaust. Both big factors in horsepower. Look on line at some of the pics at Hot VWs for ideas.
Man I'd be happy just to surprise them by the simple fact I beat them with an old air-cooled VW.

vw "40 ford coupe"

i always wanted to take a bug and swap the front fenders and the back fenders, then take the hood and put it on the back with a 40 ford fiberglass front hood. I did it on a model when i was a kid and it looked cool.

there was some confusion in what i plan on doing..


the white/formally yellow one was the car that has good tranny and pretty good body...but no engine
red one.. half floor missing and bad tranny no engine
beige one.. good engine good tranny (autostick one )
in the barn are 2 sets of good heads, one good engine.. and one locked up engine
i wanted to lower this one 3 inches.. suicide doors...and tinted windows on this one.. and take the auto stick out.. and put the tranny out the yellow/white one..
then take the good engine from the barn and get it rebuilt with more HP and put it in this one ... and then when i finish this one .. i'll take the auto stick put it in the white/yellow one.. and then this engine thats currently in the car i'll have it rebuilt and put in the white/yellow one.. and it will be stock..
because.. now i have a job at the car shop and my dad said he would buy me something to drive when the time came but i doubt it..
and i can get help with it at work too. hope yall can follow this.. its confusing


-Cam is in class
