Hi, My name is Alan and I have been into VWs since I graduated High School. I got my first Beetle, a 1971, the summer of graduation and still have it today 17 years later. I have had a couple of other Beetles in that time, a 1965 and a 1973, but sold them because I didn't have the room for them. I love my 1971 and will never sell it. I am currently running a 2110cc engine that I built with a mix of mostly CB Performance and Gene Berg products. Heads are CB 044s 40x35.5 ported and polished (and matched intake manifolds) by AJ Simms. The cam is an Engle FK-8 using Autocraft 1.4 rockers. I am also running dual 45mm Dellorto DRLA carbs which I love and a Mallory Unilite vac advance dizzy with a 6-AL box. The tranny was built by Transform and includes a ZF LSD from Bruce Tweddle. I really like the Cal-Look style and try to keep mine Beetle inline with those influences.
I hope to be able to meet with everyone soon and take part in your cruises and other club events.
