Headlight Assembly Restoration - 1963 Volkswagen Beetle

Saturday, 04/07/2012

A few weeks ago I restored the headlights on my 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, they were all rusted inside and looked really bad. I had been looking into buying new replacements but decided to go ahead and restore the original Hella headlight assemblies that I have on this bug. These original German-made headlight assemblies are of much better quality than the replacements that come from China, Brazil, or wherever else they come from.

Cruise to Show & Shine XXVIIII with the Miami V-Dubs

Wednesday, 04/04/2012

Here is a little video I've put together of last Sunday's cruise with the Miami V-Dubs to the 29th Show & Shine Volkswagen Event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On our way up from Miami to the show, which was held at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauederdale, Florida, we cruised with about 36 classic Volkswagens. It was truly an awesome and exciting experience to see so many bugs, buses, and a couple of the more unusuals, cruise together. We were turning heads, disrupting traffic, and wishing our cars did not break down half way to the show. I will definitely do it again next year, no matter how close I live from the location of the event.
