Greg, I finnally got you some pics for the "readers rides" section. Here is a brief history.... Around 1994 I purchased a '71 Square for $400 I had intensions of resorting it. I had owned some bugs and SB's in the past, but always wanted a Square. When I bought it someone had really messed up the stock fuel-injection system, trying to "re-wire" it. So that was the first thing that had to be fixed to get it running. To get it on the road I located a 2bbl from a friend and bought the manifold I needed and a little work...and I was on the road. Well after driving it around for about a year the engine died. So I decided for a complete restore...ground up. I began to disassemble it, and realized that the body had way to much rust for a restoration. So I needed to located a good donor body as the pan was still in pretty good shape (except of course for the battery area). So I found a '69 with a good body in Alabama ($225.00). After bringing it back to Florida I then stripped it and began working on it. After digging into it a little I found out that it had been hit in the front. And wanting to do this right, I opted to get better panels rather that fix-n-fill the ones I had. And as if the great VW god was looking out for me...someone I did not know emails me about 2 Sqaurebacks in her cousins yard that had been sitting there since his dad died, some 15-20 years ago. They wanted to get rid of them, and saw on my home page that I was intested in Squares. Since they were not that far I went and looked and bought both '68's and a bunch of extra parts for $300. It turns out that the guy used to run a VW service shop. Well got a lot of good parts out of one of them and the other I havent even touch yet. Both of them had been converted to stock dual carbs. Thats were I am at now..I will keep you updated with info and pics of my progress Sean
