If you ever want to run it at Bonneville again, I have my license current up to 200MPH!! Ray Shubert has the Bonneville Ghia, with the Opel GT front end, that he is restoring we could take them both out.

That is one beautiful photo! I was there that weekend, but I was too busy with an injected Camaro than VWs. We camped two spots over from the Schleys and Lowry. One of my all time favorite VWs.

Hi Russel,

With all your cars you could make your place into a museum for VW Cal look history, like a scotish Pomona/NHRA Fairplex.
Aberdeen could do with a tourist attraction and I'll certainly come up to visit.
Oh but don't forget plenty of patio heaters to get the So Cal feel
