Its the journey , not the destination you remember

Ok, so i'm not really new to the beetle , my ex had one and i really enjoyed it. Now my pick-up is on its way out so I figured a beetle is the is the way to go. Long story short I found this 2002 Turbo S hiding behind a garage with a big ? on what is wrong with it. the price was right , I think, i'm not all thumbs around the engine bay , and i got some great friends that are not "beetle people" but are big into VW's.

the plan is to get it right as my daily driver and post some pics on the way.




As I found her.

taking a look, most likely a broke fork in the trans, its ok I know were to find one. wink. Haven't named her yet but need to get to know her first. The name Josilyn keeps bouncing around in my head though. Don't think I have ever met one so maybe ?

Very nice to see a Turbo S being saved. Fortunately you will be able to find a replacement o2m gearbox or rebuild the one you have relatively inexpensively.
