Just had Rosie dropped off. We flew out Tuesday, had the car picked up at 5pm, stayed the night and flew home Wednesday. She arrived at 12:15 today. She's all original. Check out the pans!!!!!

P.S. We were going to stay for a week but we were honestly just too exhausted. I'm still getting over my ER stay and my wife has a bad back and she's just not getting the rest she needs, so we decided just to cash in and just come home until we can both get better and get some pain management going.

I thought you said Rosie was all original? Where's the rust on the pan?

Trust me, there is rust in the front wheelwell by the bumper mount, the top rear of the front fenders and the bottom of them along with the entire right quarter being lower about an inch. She got whapped and it bent the body up to the B pillar. But the doors still close great. They just need fresh seals. I have the carpet up in the right rear and the windows open to air her out. I'll post some youtube videos in a bit.

Sounds great! Back in the late '70's a friend swapped her blue fastback for my truck for a few days so she could move. Cool ride.

She does need some TLC. The turn switch is a bit wonky, the steering linkage is missive and the interior, other than the headliner, is shot. Have new tires on order, need to get her up on jackstands and check for steering play, do a wiring test and order the seat stuff. The driver's seat has the original upholstery with a pullover pleather cover with another padded cloth cover over that.
I have all of the owner's notes on what he had done to her and such so it's pretty detailed. He drove her every day to work and she started right up when we got there Tuesday. Took her around the neighborhood and we were smiling the whole time. For only 54HP, she moves rather well. Here are the youtube links!

By the way, here is a fun fact about Rosie's owner. If any of you have seen Woody Allen's movie, Sleeper, there is a scene where the nose gets squished. The guy that holds up the flattened nose is our relative and the guy who gave us the fastback. He's 92 now and sharp as a tack! Here is a quick link. Blink and you'll miss him!

Slick! Did he autograph Rosie's nose for you?

Uh, no.
Just got the title transferred, plates, tags and insurance. Need to get to work on the seats, carpet, door gasket material and an overall extensive cleanup.

Just took her out on her first adventure. Went to Home Cut Donuts! The owner has a Hot VW's featured squareback. Got so many thumbs up today!

Heading out to the store. This is going to be the first time my wife has driven her, much less a Volkswagen.

Yeah, our medical conditions just left us too exhausted. We decided to nip it short and try to keep our health and sanity. Couldn't go on any less sleep than we were already on.
Anyway, the weather is changing out there and it's amazing back here right now. Got a lot done on Rosie. Got the seats and interior out. Going to clear a spot in the garage, get her up on stands, pull the wheels and have them ready to go for new tires next week. Ordered seals, carpet and upholstery today too.

Definitely. Just picked up some bedliner paint and the some sound deadener. It was raining so I couldn't get it out in the driveway to wirewheel then weld the pinholes in the pan.
