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.

I have rented the same shitty Duplex in a shitty neighbourhood since Feb. 2011. No garage and I had to put up a fence myself, well I didn't have to but the dogs love it. Rent has been raised slightly a few times, something I do understand. The owner came to us in Nov. and said that he wanted to raise rent yet again, this time quite a bit more than any other time. I told him piss off and the wife and I started to look around for a better place.

Looking at some houses the rent is just way high in my area. So I told her I think this is a sign and that we need to look at buying. We have gone through the steps and pretty much it is going to be the same money renting something better as it is buying monthly. In our search my only wish is it have a 2 car garage attached or detached. I'm not that picky.

There is a street close to us that she would drive up and down because she loves the houses. Well one of her favourites popped up for sale, we looked and put in a bid. It was accepted and we close Monday the 18th. The house is amazing it has a 2 car attached and a 6 car detached, more than I was asking for. It also has a finished basement for my retro game collecting habit. 3 bed 2.5 bath and a big loft over the 2 car. There is a really nice sun room off the back. It was priced close to other houses in the area without the 6 car garage and sun room.

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.







Oh and the house has grape vines, fruit trees, and blueberry bushes.

There aren't very many people I know that fully understand what the garage means to me. That is why I am sharing it here because you all know how Au'some having your own shop is. Now I have to come up with someway of making the garage make money for me.

Thanks all. The house I doesn't really matter to me. It makes her happy so I guess it is a win win! Now I will be more motivated to build stuff now that I am not on a parking pad out baking in the sun.
