Starting in January, my old friends and I decided to get together on the first Saturday of each month to work on the Beetle. This is a bit of a throwback to the way we used to get together in the mid 90's to work on any VW projects my mechanic had on the go and the shop, and to work on the 1971 Super Beetle that is now being re-done as Project #Super71.
We don't necessarily get a lot of work done, we mostly talk about the good old days while we eat pizza. I knew that we had to schedule this time so that it would force everyone to free up that first Saturday each month. It was working perfectly until we had to the put the brakes on or little club because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am not sure when we will be able to reconvene but hopefully it's sooner than later.
For those of you who have restored a classic VW Beetle or other Air-Cooled Volkswagen you know that it's much more than just building a car. It's a team sport and it's fun to share the experience with your friends and family. In the long run, everyone wins and can enjoy the project and the stories that revolve around the process.
So I salute all of the garage buddies of those who are restoring a vintage VW.
Thanks for the help!
