You buy lot of parts on swap meets, on Ebay or on your favorite secret seller ?
So, please share with us, your treasures found....
I find this afternoon one original VW licence plate frame and a funny original "DDS" California licence plate.
Enjoy !

Great...like anyone from the east coast can follow that up...   Angry Tongue Wink

Last fall I got a

1.  "new" counterweight 69mm crank
2.  Oberg filter
3.  30mm Shadek oil pump
4.  Berg relief cover
5.  Magnum straght cuts

Very small club show in the area.  All from the same guy...he also had a set of Italian IDAs with linkage and jets...didn't have that much more $$$ with me.  2-3 will go into my 2110, 1 and 5 will probably go into my 1835...

There's not usually a lot of VW stuff at swap meets in Denver. My best find, though was a nearly complete set of Bug-In plaques for $25.00. No kidding. Unfortunately, I fell on some hard times a few years ago and had to sell them. I've a nearly complete set again, but it's cost a lot more than $25.00!

That was a pretty good score!!
I did fairly well in the Denver area... that show where I saw your car I nabbed a pair of late pop outs for $15, a Race-Trim oil cooler block off for $5, a pair of aluminium 40hp ratio rockers for $10, and a chrome 4.5" Sprint Star for $22 Wink The pop outs and Sprint Star are on my car now...
Here's a shot of you car I took at that event... VW's On The Green

Nice picture! I guess I need to look a little more carefully. I did find an EMPI steering wheel (the woodrim one with a black padded horn button) and an E-Z-R shifter in an early 70's bug in a junkyard once. I also got a set on wood dash knobs ansd window cranks too. I didn't have a bug enough socket for the steering wheel with me so I had to buy the whole column. I think I got it all for aropund $100! I think it was in '96 or '97.

What with craiglist being free and the prices of digital cameras and computers going down all the time, swap meeting will probably keep going downhill. Angry
