Eric B.: 1965 VW Bug

I bought my 1965 VW Bug off EBay in 2004. I paid for it “sight unseen” and had it delivered from California. It was everything that the seller promised to me. I really like this car because it is fun to drive, economical at 20 mpg city, and it takes up little garage space. I am no stranger to VWs. I have owned several Dune Buggies. My first car was a 1975 Bug. I told myself that I would never have another Bug because they are so slow. This one has a 2110 cc motor with dual 45 Dellortos and wedge port heads, with 120hp at the wheels, this car is much faster than my first VW. The car was lowered and has a performance trans by Rancho. It also has Porsche wheels and gauges. I dream of reaching 200+ hp with my 1965 Bug and owning a VW Bus someday. I am a sandblaster and painter. I grew up in Clarkston and live in Ortonville with my wife Jennifer. This is one of my “daily drivers.” I would like to thank Parts Place for their advice and service throughout the years.
