Stephen, Nothing really new to report. I only got to drive it around 15 miles before I had to return to VA. I had her completely tuned up by my mechanic before putting her back in my garage in NJ.
No question, the ride can be a little scary when big trucks pass you, I just grip the steering wheel a little tighter to keep her in her lane. I’ve owned several aircooled VWs in my lifetime, so I knew what to expect.
The best recommendation I can make is to buy one completely restored. Generally speaking, most restored cars on the market have more money into them than asking price. Now that I’m older, I’d rather someone else do the resurrection.
I’ll repost when I get her down to VA. (edited)
