Dear All-- I have just joined this board as a new owner of an old Beetle. I have a 1967 Orange beetle that has been garaged for the last 20 years, but I am told that it was driven into the garage. very little rust. I am looking for a trustworthy auto mechanic who can clean, tune, plugs, belts etc... the engine and also handle the detailing of the interior. The car is currently in westchester but will flat bed it to the right garage.--Any tips?? thanks in advance...Mike

Hey Mike!
Mike here, too.
There is a shop down here on LI that most ACVW folk use for things outside the comfort zone.

GT Precision Imports

As for detailing, of the car needs a serious clean inside out I have a friend who owns Detailers Garage. He's based in Bayside.
Warren Lau
Warren has a following of seriously high end cars. But he's always taken time to help me select products to detail my cars myself.
He can get you started with a good clean car, and you can surely keep it that way once you have a good base to start from.

Be sure to post up some pics and your cars story and progress in the Long Term threads.

For sure we hope to see you at at some shows, if you see a DVG logo stop by and say hi!

Mike, welcome. If interested we can easily help you tackle these easy DIY items yourself. If your so inclined. Regardless, can't wait to see this car!

Take care
