So about 2 1/2 weeks ago, my recently acquired Color Concepts Beetle, dubbed "Jr." broke down when the timing belt shredded before my kit came :runnethov and needless to say, a rolled down window, a dead battery and a 6 hour wait for AAA in a snowstorm later she was home. Had to move her in the corner, so I put my '73 (Pops) to pull her. Here are my two jems :D ----->

nice dubs! your 73 looks to be in really good shape as well....

funny how "pops" had to come rescue "jr".....oh the irony....


but your "it's not all about speed" should be on "pops" not your turbo........ :bigthumb:

Thanks guys- yeah it was pretty damn ironic.

The timing belt job is nowhere near finished. I have bent valves in every piston so tomorrow at school I rip Jr.'s head off.

Figuratively speaking of course :D

Oh, and yoyorob my 73 is a full resto. Any rust you see is superficial, ergo a cotton swab and some neutralizer is the fix.

By the way, did anyone notice the eyelids are made from electrical tape? ;)
