OT Irony by Bill Berckman
Take a look at this newspaper clipping. They interviewed a pregnant lady who was concerned about the effect of jackhammers from nearby construction on her unborn child. The part that is ironic is that during the interview, they have a photo of her smoking a cigarette. Wonder if that would have...

My Bug was squished! Help me to avoid getting screwed! by Al Gilson
Yesterday a moron in a Ford Taurus did a left turn across my lane right in front of me. Needless to say, despite all of my best efforts, I smacked into him at about 25mph. Damage? Yep. Left front fender, bonnet, left front tire, rim and tire. The spooky part is that there is a slight crinkle...

You will have a problem with a type1 bellhousing and 76 and up 228mm flywheels. If you want to start a Vanagon engine on the stand, you will need a 210mm or 215mm bus flywheel. I just saw a bellhousing FS on the Samba. "Mike Rocket J. Squirrel Elliott"...
