Happy Easter


Went home over the weekend to visit Kermit.  Put the new signal switch on and it did help matters at all.  I still have both tail lights flashing when when I turn right.  I blew a fuse and went up to the local NAPA dealer for a fuse.  One of my friends offered to give me a labor discount if he could drive the bus around town!  Replaced the fuse and started looking closer at the wiring and a piece broke off the fuse block.  That needs replacing.  Then I got to thinking . . .  hey . . .  I don’t have the ground strap connected under the bus.  Of course I didn’t think about that until last night after I was already home.  AND the speedo cable broke.  On the highside, the he started right up and ran like a top!  I think Ill go back in May and bring him back home for the summer.  Dad is going to put some tinted glass in the windshield and Ill rebuild the windows.

Almost That Time of Year

Well, I still have not made it to an Illinois function yet.  They had the annual swap meet in Wheaton on the 28th, but I was here in Sunny Texas.  Not that it was a bad thing the weather is great (mid 70’s) AND . . .  I did get to go to my first official sanctioned VW event!  The Southwest Championship Bug In at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, TX.  They had Drag races, swap meet and a car show.  Too bad I don’t know how to use my digital camera…. all my pics are over exposed, but here are a couple . . .  It was a great time… a lot of cool cars and buses.  It was a bit of a drive from Ft Worth, but it was well worth the trip.  Not a s many folks as I expected, but a great time
