Greetings from South Africa

Post by zafgak » Tue Feb 02, 2016 4:30 am

Hi All

Zafgak here from Johannesburg, South Africa - A 56 year old fart who is still 18 in his mind :)

Just bought a 1600 Beach Bug for Fun ...

Needs a new battery and there is excessive play on the steering ...

Thought this Forum may help

Welcome to the STF!


You sound like you'll fit right in, many of us ..."experienced" individuals here.

There's a great deal of good info in the various "stickies" and search works well these days.

You can also search the STF (or most other websites) using Google site search

Example:
(what you want to search for, but not in parenthesis) site:shoptalkforums.com
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

Welcome to the forum Zafgak. Your just a young man in prime of life. I'm 72 and still enjoy driving my Ghia which I imported from Japan to UK 8 years ago . Took me just over 4 years to refurbish and now I'm out driving it when ever the wife lets me.
