About Me

Hi everyone, my wife Sherri and I (Richard) are on our way this weekend to pickup our '73 VW Thing in Las Vegas.  We are spending our winter down in Yucca Valley next to Joshua Tree NP and will be home in June.

We have been home for a little over a month now.  Making good steady progress on the Thing.  We had it sandblasted before bringing it home.  Body is off, a new 1/2 pan is installed, trans rebuilt and in.  We had a 1776cc dual Kadron carbs, so it is ready to go in too.  Have discovered that lots of parts are missing so have been busy finding little bits and pieces.
