Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

I didn't buy it the guy who owns it wants me to work on it. He said it was in Hot Vw's in it's lifetime though.

Looks like a great looking car that someone stopped caring about.. Should clean up real nice.

Are you working on it for the original owner/builder, or has it been past on since it was put together like that?

I don't know much other than the car is dusty. I thought someone would recognize it looks like it came from Texas.

Our 1965 "Mexico" Ghia, 2007 Carrera Panamericana participant ... before the race. We took a close third in the Historica A class, which is under 2 liters.

Does the rules really allow you to have the fuel pump in the passenger compartment along with the fuel line?

I know you'd never pass tech at the drag strip.
