^^ on that note Franz... A couple years ago you guys had talked a bout a weekend slam job on a beetle for around 2500 ish if i can recall. What would the cost be? something along the lines of your 64'.

My wife hardly ever drives her stock 64 and i hate seeing it just sit there so i have been kicking the idea of dropping it and making it my daily :-k

^^^ ahhh ! Ok. My first thought when you said ski patrol bus was the bus that had the snow tracks on it. I used to have pics of it. I was scratching my :-k head trying to figure out how I missed that build here! Smile

Funny I actually know where there is a coach built snow cat that runs a 25 or 36 hp engine. Was thinking about going back to check it out and get some more info on it. Pretty cool but I can only imagine how slow it would be.

Hey Franz, not pushing or anything, I know you guys are very busy, just wondering if you have had anymore time to get into my pan and stuff. Just let me know, so I can make plans, I don't want you guys to have to store and work around all my junk.

Thanks
Josh
