Tom and Brutus in Tyrone

Post by tom petersen on Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:34 pm

Hello, I've been following your site for a year or so while I am restoring my 66 Type 1 "Brutus". It was new to me in 1997 and my wife and I drove it for 5 years. I commuted in it to Atlanta and put about 40,000 miles on it before parking it in 2003. Started restoring it in May of 2008. Getting close now and aim to have it back on the road by June or July. Replaced the 1300 with a 1600 DP with dual Kadrons in 1997. Just had to have more freeway power! Other than an earlier cosmetic restoration, the Bug was very original and needed a lot of running gear replaced.
Here is a link to my photobucket album if you are interested:

Welcome Tom, I go down Hwy 54 each day in O'Bugga. He is a '66 as well. I think VW built more '66s than anyother year. LOL I work in Clayton Co. you may have seen me. If you need any help with anything let me know.
