Maybe you could wallpaper the bedroom with stickers...I'm sure she would love it,and then you can collect some more.Win-Win!

And..................FIXED!!!!   So thanks to Pittwagen mentioning his "spare 2.0 motor" and my realization that later FI bugs and buses used the exact same AAR in the mid-late 70's and hey, I have a spare bus engine too!  So I went to that spare engine that's been sitting collecting dust, spiders and the odd mud-wasp for the past few years and disconnected and dug out it's oily/greasy/dirty/nasty AAR.   Cleaned it all up, cleaned it out with carb-cleaner and jeez yeah it's opening was just about double the size of the opening of the one I pulled out of my ailing super beetle.  I'd say overall it's about 50% open at room temperature.  The beetle's AAR was around 25%.   Popped it in and tightened up the hose clamps and voila, she started right up and immediately went into that strong purrrr of initial faster idle as she warmed up.  No hesitation.  No chugging slowly and stalling.  Just pure purr.   

Thanks all!

Awesome show!   Bought a t-shirt, bought a back seat full of parts/pieces/metal.  First year ever I did not collect any free stickers.........cuz my wife says I already have over 300 stickers from all over and seriously why do I need more.....   Great to see the folks I know and loved seeing all the vehicles.   Always!

Thanks for all the effort going into the weekend.

Regardless, of the weather I still had a great time!

At last years event there was a food truck called Vdub Dogs. Any idea if the guy is still in business? PM me if you know.

Thanks.
