Corey...."Andy, you have an oil leak!" Andy, "Yeah, so, that's what that stuff is all over the back of my Van."


Andy, "Corey, is that it?" Corey, "Yep, Andy, I believe you've pinpointed it!"

Yep, I want one of these!








Below is a pic of my two grandchildren, Emma & Eli. They come by my little garage almost everyday throughout the summer to see what Paw Paw had done to the Vanagon. Eli liked looking up under the Van at the engine! Emma liked the red motor brackets. Here, we are on a hike that I promised them after we got back from the TDI Fest.....they love hiking.







Banquet pics will be posted when they have been tweaked for lighting purposes!

IIRC that one is on a Ford LTD chassis. The interior was never designed to be seen on that car, so it looks like crap up close.

No - it's a fiberglass replica of a Tucker body on a 1975 Ford LTD frame. The plaque next to it even says so.

They can't afford a real tucker one sold at Barrett Jackson for 2+ million dollars
