    Beetle Crisis TV Show

    You fellow "air-heads" may have seen this already, but I stumbled on to a U.K. TV show called Beetle Crisis by accident on one of the Discovery Channels.

    They started on a 71 beetle on last nights episode, tore it down to the pan and sent the pan out for media blasting, started patching panels on the shell, etc... they have a $5000 quid budget to do a pan up show car. Very entertaining to me because I saw a lot of the same issues they are running into on my bug.

    I have it on the DVR and am going to make a set of DivX files.

    Yup - Classic bound. Some Friends are driving an old Split Window bus down from North Seattle and meeting me there.

    It will be a long trip for them - but they are diehards, and one has been working for Bow Wow in the Seattle area for as long as I can remember. He even took an old Ghia and turned it into a Ghia Batmobile. That guy can find any vw part you can dream up, knows what is good repo and what is bad.

    Maybe we should start a Classic Thread in the GTG section and encourage all the people on here with air-cooled rigs (as Bugzy says OG VWs) to meet ahead of time and roll in together? See if we can get arrested on TV in SoCalEuro shirts?

    We are going to take the bug down to the Breakfast at Balboa too on the 26th and check out all the other cars with the new cameras and lenses - you should roll down (weekend/morning GTGs work so better for me than middle of the week evenings)

    There are more, times and days depend on your cable provider I guess. I too set my DVR to do a "series record" - There are some copies floating around online too.

    Off to create a thread for the classic...
