Shayne Howell's 66 Beetle
I've had her since Mar 16
of this year. She's the first VW my wife or I have had since we
were kids but between the two of us had a bug, a bus, a dual cab
and a Type 3 variant when we were younger. Her nickname is Pickle
but her real name is Norah (scratched into the inside of the glove
compartment door. I was told I'm the fourth owner. She's a 66 (Aug
65). Mostly stock except the paint. The engine is a 63 case and we
think it's a 1500 out of a bus. About the only serious work I've
done on her so far is to replace the tie rods and steering dampener
so the front wheels wouldn't fall off (it was really that bad).
Lots of plans for her including fixing the paint but with two kids
in college I count myself lucky just to have her. I drive her to
work (about 9 miles each way) most every day.
