Kentucky Hot Wheels Web Site

khwapicWe’ve created a new web site named Kentucky Hot Wheels, where all things are Hot Wheels and VDubs. Since we’re avid Hot Wheels collectors and VW enthusiast, what better way to share both of our passions. We’ve added a Classified Ad’s section in hope that local traders, sellers and buyers will use it and avoid other bogus online auctions and classifieds. All ads have to be approved by us before they’re posted. It’s a very easy process. We’ll also be using this site to document the restoration of our 1974 VW Super Beetle, so be sure to keep checking back often for updates. If you see anything missing from this new web site or you can think of a way to make it better, be sure to use the Contact Form to let us know.

Tear Down Begins

Tear Down BeginsTear Down BeginsTear Down BeginsTear Down BeginsTear Down BeginsSo, between cutting the grass and trying to make room in the garage for the Beetle, I managed to start the tear down process. Sorting and separating what is trash and what can be re-used. The process sure brings back some old memories of evenings after school when Robert Love, Terry Diamond, Charlie Greene, Ray Roe, Rodney Salyers and myself would spend hours upon hours working on our old Beetles. No big surprises so far, the body is very solid on this car. Not much to look at, but a great foundation to start with. I’ll be posting pictures as I can and documenting the entire process. You’re all more than welcome to join in on the fun and get your hands dirty… You can check out all of the photos here!

1974 VW Super Beetle Project

Coming HomeWe picked up our 1974 VW Super Beetle today in Louisa, Kentucky. It’s a very solid body, no rust in the floor pans, fender wheels, etc. It needs a lot of TLC and some replacement parts. And so, the restoration project begins!
