Dial a cam gear Mark Kuttner
What I love about our hobby is that if you want to build a better part. Have at it. Thats where I met Marc Kuttner. While I was walking through the swap meet I met Marc. He has a passion for performance & being an engineer by trade, he made a dial-a- cam gear. His parents were from Germany & that started his trip down the VW path. His 59 Beetle has a 2110 built variable vane turbo so he knows performance. We go deep in cam gear talk. Buckle up & hang on for this podcast.

Ep 123 Steve Knecht Future Shock Builder
Steve is one of the original VW builders from Bakersfield Ca. With is shop Volks Works he built / painted & created over a dozen cars that were featured in the mid to late 80's. His knack for customization & paint put the Bakersfield crew on the map. He also with Chris Addington sold custom dashboards, bumpers and more. If it was cool & from Bakersfield Steve probably played a role in it. He later moved on to the V8 world building more custom cars.
