We have some pretty cool cars in the Seaview Way cul-de-sac. My neighbor, Tony, purchased a 1961 VW in 1993 while still in the Navy and had it restored that same year.
In the 25 intervening years he has only put 20 miles on the car. Tony has decided to start enjoying the car and asked me if I would help him install a restored gas tank. Tony knows all about Beltsville Shell and our training in working on old cars.
Here is the restored gas tank installed and ready for a drive.
A few adjustments to the carburetor were needed.
Next we were off to the gas station for a fill up! After getting a fresh load of fuel we are ready for some Crusin'!
Tony's VW perfectly fits the description, "Showroom Stock!" Every inch is spotless.
At the end of the day, Tony presented me with a new wall decoration for my garage. Just like his VW, it is perfect!
Thanks, Tony! Let's put some miles on the old Corvettes and your VW!
