Default Hey, It's soultron!

Hi all, soultron here.
I'm more of a drift guy, but I've had a 74 beetle for a while.
Back when I drove it years ago it was okay, but one day it stuck in 3rd and I didn't know enought to fix it or have enough money to pay someone else. So here we are now...

I wanna make it my daily beater, so the plans are:

Engine and tranny swap (rotary maybe, bus trans? dunno)
Lowering (don't know how)
Swapping fenders (to earlier ones)

Maybe if it gets good I'll fit a split window in there or other stuff I can't do yet.

Either way, I'm just in the planning stages. Here's the yard ornament...

Well, I cleaned it up a bit, but forgot to take pictures.
I'm not sure if I want to use the rotary motor anymore, they are too high strung. We poked around and for some reason I have wide 5 to chevy adapters... They won't help me so I might just list them for sale here or on Evilbay. So far... no good?

Got out and found the motor. No pics, but I'm sure at least one of you have seen one before. I put a breaker on it to see what I'm up against. Turns most of the way around and stops... rust spot? I poured a little automaic trans fluid in to try and loosen it up. Works on lawnmowers...
The distributor cap is broken, so I need that before I can check it out. I really wish I knew what I was doing... but oh well. It's just a bug, no one will miss it if I mess it up.

Consarnit. I'm such a lurker now.
Why is it that when you think you might sell something, people offer you spit, but when you want to buy somthing in the same condition, it's worth gold? Oh, you economy you!

Ok, so I jumped in head first. Old motor likely needs a rebuild.
Found a running motor for a decent price.
Long drive in hot weather to get it, but it's gonna rock. Here's a cell phone pic.
