    Ep 173 Brian Sharp Vintage Air cooled parts

    Out of central Florida comes Vintage Air Cooled Parts. Bryan got into the hobby at a young age and a car accidnet side tracked him for a few years. Dipping into the min-truck scene for a bit. Then back to VWs. A compnay started by a couple of VW enthisiest that decided during the lockdown that they should start a VW parts company. First product was the foot rest with dimple dyes. The company starts from there going on to make several parts. The custom touch is what sets them a part from the competition. You can find Bryan at the VW show on the east coast. Good Guy & great story.

    EP 172 EBI Russell Ritchie

    EP 172 EBI Russell Ritchie

    This year in Europe there are two big shows happening the first one is Hessisch Oldendorf . The second show the following weekend is European bug in. European Buggin is the premier event in Europe for the custom VW crowd. Held in Chimay Belgium they turn the streets into a dragstrip the parking and camping areas into a large rave and swap meet spaces. It is absolutely an event to behold. One of the best things out there is the gas or garage set up. Vintage gassers and drag cars from early Volkswagen racing history are on display and are not only on display but are also drag raced. With an appreciation for a lot of the American VW drag race history you may get the opportunity to see some VW legends drag race some of the old cars that they once owned. On this episode we talk to Russell Ritchie who's been putting on VW gasser garage since the beginning. We talk about the cars that will be on display and some of the first times that he was racing with people like Roger Crawford, Darrell Vittone, Ron Fleming and many others. If youve never been its a bcuket list item for all VW fans.

    Ep 171 Greg Sloma Jetta Bus

    Ep 171 Greg Sloma Jetta Bus

    At the VW Classic this year tons of cars showed up for the first time. One of those I caught up with was the Jetta Bus that was featured in Hot VWs recently. Greg Sloma is a hadcore VW enthusiest. He was a born & bread Chevy guy. His son wanted a VW. From that point on he fell in love with the people in the scene. His 1965 VW bus that has been merged with a 2008 Jetta. Its a top notch job. His attention to detail and the quality of the build speaks for itself. Its a great bus & a great story. He also has quite a few other VWs so take a listen.

    Ep 168 Berlin Buick Rob Freeman

    The Berlin Buick was at the grand national roadster show in the gathering of Hot VWs display. It is by far one of the nicest done mid-engine conversions I have seen. The quality of the build the fit & finish as well as the body mods that have been done to such a high level. it's a car that must be seen to appreciate.  Look at pictures Here

Interview idea

This podcast is awesome, I am super excited about this. I think you guys should do all your might to get Sam Rorrer on this show. Any of the old timers should know or know of him and Billy Harcrow, Billy unfortunately passed away on our Easter weekend trip to dumont in 01. Sam is a Air cooled genius when it comes to these engines. Please get this man on your show! You’ll be fascinated with his info maybe he’d finally tell his secrets haha!
**You really need to try your hardest to get Sam on this show, (any vw he built was never beat) I can attest to it as he’s been a family friend of my fathers. he used to work for Rogers European in Downey CA he lives in NV now pretty close to Vegas.**

And just like that I was hooked !

I randomly selected this podcast and clicked on episode 157. Although I was stuck in the most savage traffic along the FDR Drive and TriBoro Bridge in NYC …. the time passed with glorious speed as I listened to one of the most entertaining “gear-head centric” interviews ever ! Keep up the brilliant work sir !

Top notch show

I absolutely enjoy your show and look forward to what comes next!
