Post Jordan in Springfield
How is everybody? I\'m in Springfield, 1970 sunroof bug, and have been lurking on thesamba for a couple years.
I am hooked on VWs, but just getting started and I don\'t have any pals in the VW scene.
I have lots of questions, my car is out of commission right now. But I want to drive it!
Hope to meet some of you at June Bug.
I\'ll work on posting a pic of my car.

Great to have you here Jordan! That bug looks nice.

Feel free to ask any questions you have in the \"help me\" section. People are always willing to at least guess.

Thanks for the comments guys, it\'s not in the best shape overall, but it looks pretty good from 30 feet.
My wife would like the ghia vert, too! But I\'m sticking to the bug for now.
Yesterday must have been the get-your-shiny-car-out-of-the-garage day. I saw a great looking blue beetle with whitewalls last night at Grand and Glenstone.

Yeah, thats probably Shane\'s bug.

I pulled my dirty ragtop out of the driveway yesterday for a sunny day cruise, too. There were a lot of doing the same. First stretch of warm, sunny days for a while.

That makes me wish I had a ragtop bus. You think I\'d burn in hell for turning Raby\'s bus into a ragtop?

I thought I'd update here. I had a pan restoration done and engine rebuilt. The guys that fixed it said they had never seen channels held together with cement and roof shingles.
