My father in law passed on January 5th of last year.

He left us a 68 Beetle.

But he left us soooo much other stuff that we just filled up the garage, burying this engine under all of his stuff.

On the 1 year anniversary of his death we decided to finally pay to bring the Beetle home.

We’ve been organizating the garage. Trying to make room. It’s been 4 hours away at my wife’s grandmother’s house. Here are some year old pics.

Bob (father in law) just replaced the floor pan, new shocks, treated the interior. Other than some dirt it’s a decently restored 68.

He had wrecked 3 vehicles from not taking his insulin. We think he was afraid to drive his beloved Beetle that he bought in highschool.

I can’t wait to see it in our garage.

It currently has it’s original engine in it. We don’t know much about the souped up engine in our garage. If you can tell what you’re looking at from the pics, please let me know. I’ll be in the garage for a while painting a 2002 so if you need better pictures of parts for identification let me know.
