Since I am sure you having NOTHING else to do.... Grin

Fabs, can you search your dark cave for a few more cars from Hot VW's?

Candy red '69 (?) Karmann Ghia with BIG 2386 turbo, 8 spokes, yes street car. Came from Pasadena area, later owned by Dyno Don.

Deep green Karmann Ghia, tan interior, with alloys, big cc (2110?) motor, dual turbo mufflers tucked under car.

ok...one more, not a Ghia though.... A Puma! From 1987 or 88? SCS drag car/street car....think this one had two motors too...one for street and one for drag.

Think you can pull these from your treasure chest?  Grin

thanks Fabian,

Fabs, after you have done that can you convert your entire VW literature collection to digital format, publish it to the web, and make it unsearchable by key word, year and mag edition.  Grin (You might want to have a good lawyer too.)

The first time I saw that car was when Dee gave me a tour of the place.  It was sitting on stands just inside the shop with 4 BRMs in boxes sitting around it.  It was under a cover, but Dee removed it so I could see it.  It hadn't been put back together yet, but was the new Porsche Minerva Blue color.  I think that was around 1986 or so.
