Got our old girl back, new clutch, clutch cable throwout bearing, transmission seals,wheel seals and rear brakes. Parts and labor just over $500. Seems to go good now. While engine was out the mechanic let me in his shop so I could take engine sheet metal off . Took it all home clean it up and repaint it, now even engine looks good.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.

Had 2 bugs, 66 and 68 in my earlier days. Got through college in the 66. Remember putting a stinger exhaust on it, spacers with bolt pattern for chevy chrome reverse rims with baby moons, and all little doo-dads inside.
Even installed an old Paxton supercharger. Never could get it to work right. Everytime you would floor it, it would throw the belt. No matter how tight it was, that belt was history.
Remember having someone heavy sitting in the rear seat and having the battery short out everytime you hit a bump?
Oh, the good old days.
