Road to Rennsport
Spent the weekend helping my good friend Ben Salazar of Der Kliener Panzers fame. He has a 12.5 sec. 105mph Qtr. mile 67 beetle street car more on that car down the road. So I helped him find this low production 69 Long wheelbase sunroof 912 a few years back. He drove the car awhile and decided to rebuild the motor. He got a hold of old big bore kit 86mm pistons and a hotter cam with straight cut gears. With a lightened flywheel and balanced & blueprinted parts this car should move well. With a deadline for Rennsport we need to get it done.
