need to build a 2789 cc engine? or a 2332cc engine? need new wheels? or drums with 2 bolt patterns? fenders for a porsche? i will have some parts for you. because i want to get some projects forward.
This might be the smallest vw engine in my place for the moment.
we got the engine running, but the carb leaked some, so we have to get a new one.
and the engine tins also, and a better muffler too.
i got the ghia also back to the garage.

not much has happened. Except this pile of parts is now more to be a complete engine. it started as a empty block with these upgrades: full flow, align bored, machined fo the 94 barrels, and now it has new lifters, new bearings, gaskets, 94 mm males, bugpack 4062-10 cam. mildly ported stock heads, 009, better exhaust, and new engine tins, but the carbs are still missing. maybe some 40 mm dells or pdf style carbs...

This bad year has made me do some changes, like the two cabriolet ghias went to to a happy new owner, and this is mainly because i didn't have the money to make them any better, and to be honest, it didn't feel right anymore. so it got a Plymouth Duster instead. Similar that my dad used to own, a 1970 model, slant six, 3-speed column shifter... what a beauty. Heck i do own only two VW`s now. the panel van and the turbo ghia. two mopars, and two porsches. (one audi and one chopper harley.) maybe I'm getting mentally better?
this year has been a rough one as i broke my back too, so lots of painkillers, and nothing i can do. but I'm getting better and hopefully make some updates or video clips - who knows.
