Post New owner from Ballwin Mo
Hey all,
My name is Kyle Cross. I just picked up a 1969 beetle. I have a lot of plans for it. This is the second bug I have owned. The first one I had was a 1971 Super Beetle, that I owned while I was in Highschool. I look forward to the insight I can get from this forum.

Kyle

Welcome to teh site Kyle! You've found a great group here! My better half and I are always up that way either in our 68 bay westy, or her 71 green fastback. Ted (Thorbus) is close to you too, and he's a hell of a guy! He and Roy have helped me a TON recently! I'm still learning, but always willing to help a brother VW lover out.
Hope to see you at some of the events!
Tim from Washington.

Welcome Kyle!

I live in Wildwood off of 109, and have a bunch of air-cooled VWs--most often I drive "Clifford" the '69 Westy Camper Bus.

I think I spotted your beetle at a shop near Manchester Road and Old State Road?

This is a great group--again welcome and let's get that Beetle on the road with some fellow VWs!

Welcome Kyle, '69 is a great yr.. Just enough 60s in the bug while having the updated independent suspension to help keep rear wheels planted. Always have loved the view from the rear view catching each corner of the wide head rest. I'm always on the hunt for a '69 sunroof. Had to find.

So since I originally posted on here, I have made some changes. I sold the 69 (it was in very rough shape) and picked up a 1971 squareback that is in great shape. The motor is seized, but that is being addressed right now by Al Shelton. I would love to lower it, but I am a little hesitant to screw something up. I would love it if someone could watch me/ give me pointers while I do it.

Nice looking squareback. I've always liked those in their stock form. Curious what makes you want to lower it? Personally I'm not into lowered anything, but to each their own I guess.

I have always liked a slightly lower than stock ride height. Maybe it's the inner ricer in me
