Ep 118 Outfront Motorsports John Rykowski
The Subaru conversion in an air-cooled VW is in my opinion the equivalent to the LS Conversion to the V8. Who better then to get the for-most expert on Subaru VW conversions then the man himself John Rykowski. John Has been working with Subaru conversions for over 20 years. Chasing more reliable power he eventually tried the Subaru platform & never went back. We go over the most important things when doing a conversion. The easiest to swap. The parts needed & what to look out for.

Ep 117 George Delfino builder of Shockwave
When it comes to 80's type 3's no one can forget George Delfinos Shockwave. It was first featured in Hot VWs Sep 1984 as a full body light blue square back with graphics. Don't forget the 4-12" subwoofers & 1400 watts of stereo power. The George decides to raise the bar! On a whim while being bored George takes a sawz all to the square backs roof. Then begins the build of the decade. George also has been into car audio even owning a stereo shop. Hear about the times during the 80s in Bakersfield where high tech looking VWs were the norm.

Bill, you continue to do a great job with the podcast. It inspired me to get out into the garage again and turn wrenches. You’ve had some great guests and awesome stores. As a kid in the 80s I’ve really been enjoying your coverage on that era of the scene.
PS you’re wrong about the turtle backs on my car, I know you secretly desire a set for each of your verse dubs.
Thank you for all these great Shows Bill. I have a 1967 Deluxe that I picked up 2 years ago that was sitting deep in a garage for 25 years. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it and it’s months from being back on the road. There’s pictures on it on my Instagram XBringusX. I’ve been learning so much listening to your stories and knowledge. Thanks and please keep it up.
Great interviews with influential members of the air cooled community! I really enjoy the conversations with fellow VW enthusiasts.
