Default Foolzvolksie says Hello.

Hello Volksrodders, my name is John and I am Foolzvolksie.. My parents bought a 1959 Bug new and I was born in 1960. Not exactly sure what that means, but I have been around VWs a long time.

I currently have a 1966 Bus, in the family since new, and a 1974 Beetle, a recent addition. I also have a 1984 Diesel Rabbit, a 1974 Lincoln Continental 4 door that is mildly hot-rodded (yes, I know, who builds a 6000 pound hot rod.), and a 1962 Ford Ranch Wagon project car with a 6 cylinder and three on the tree. I won’t mention the ’82 Chevy Diesel Blazer or the ’99 Jeep Cherokee. I don’t want to look like a caraholic (Hi, my name’s John. Hi John!)

I’ve loved Volksrods since I first saw one in the early 1970’s. With the recent resurgence of Volksrod popularity, I have been chomping at the bit to build one. I have learned a great deal from this forum as a guest and felt I needed to join up, so here I am.

My current thinking is to build a pre ’68 bug, beam extender, mild top chop, and maybe mild channel or section, depending on how rusty donor car is. I like the tall and skinny wheel look, exposed engine, more “rod in progress” look rather than Rat Rod look.

The (hopefully) enclosed pictures are my Bug, a backwards me with the Bus in 1974, and the Lincoln.

I'm glad to be a part of this madness. Thanks.
