I think it's cool!

(i'm not one of the civilized members Dad (Admin) spoke of).

Bug guys are an odd bunch for sure. I love 'em. Makes guys that drive FED's look more normalish.

Love the car! Nice detail and well thought out.
Drove around in my Dad's '73 Super Beetle commuter for awhile when I rebuilt my chevy hotrod motor.
I could get 3rd gear rubber out of the little stocker.

Hi Shaun,

I am in the UK also, we run a blown and injected Rover V8 just 3.9 litres and we have made the eights with it. Last season we backed it down to chase a couple of issues and ran 9.3 every pass and didn't hurt a part all season. If you see us at the races come and say hello, always happy to discuss MFI issues. Running MFI with a supercharger is even easier than NA. We have a RED named Daddy Cool and will be at Shakey next week and the bank holiday meet, then we will be at Dragstalgia and back to Shakey in July. Come say hello.

We are at Dragstalgia, Speed Demon Sam usually makes an appearance as well. It's the best event of the year as far as I am concerned so come and enjoy the fun.
