Well......the repairs are complete just in time for spring. As some of you know, my 2000 project Beetle has been in the shop since August of 2010. "Katrina" as many of you know her, is a flood damaged car that I rescued from Louisiana. She made it thru the Hurricane but sat in 24" of water for 3 weeks. I restored all interior, electrical and many other minor problems since i got her. But unfortunately last year in July she overheated and blew apart. I have to thank Mitch of Euro-Car Specialists for the time and effort he spent in the repairs. Although costly, it has brought Katrina back to life. Again, this is a car that is 11 years old with only 6,000 original miles. I have posted a picture of the receipt for the engine repairs.
Thanks for the help to the members of this forum as well.
