Reminds me of my old army days and helicopters where we would send newbies out to look for a bottle of prop wash and a spool of flight line.

Every now and then, you get a smart one who would just disappear for a while and then swing by supply and "put in the requisition"!  Or supply would send him to the next echelon, and then he disappeared!

On a more positive note, I finally got my rebuilt original radiator back from the shop. Now to install it in my 1967 VW Beetle.

We'd send them to admin to ask for an ID 10 T form, or medical to requisition 6 feet of fallopian tube.

John, where does that mount on a 67 VW bug?  Did you get a round toit for the instillation?

It goes up front ahead of the air foil - has a direct feed to the number 3 cylinder!

I have a soft spot in my heart for VWs, my dad bought one in 64, it was the only car I got to drive when I turned 16 that year. I had a girl friend at the time, even married her a few years later, a young couple could get into all kinds of meanness in a VW, fond memories.

When I got out of the Army in 69 my first new car was a stripped down VW, it didn't even have a radio and cost $1900.It was a good car until I started using it like a jeep and took into one too many mud holes, the engine locked up.

I had an old VW, my first car. I had to go out of town so I left it with my girlfriend. She drove it until it ran out of gas and left it on the side of the road. When I got back in town I found it in the woods, stripped down to almost nothing. Needless to say I lost my car and my girlfriend after that trip.  :fp

my personal gun i shoot is chambered in 7.62x39 and it always seems to be in store at scheels. Out of all the guns we have it seems That my SKS is the only one that consistently has ammo on the shelves

I had a similar experience with an '83 Mercury Marquis.  Those make really lousy jeeps.

Wow.  Better to find out that kind of stuff before you get married...   ;D

Well that all depends on whether you got the original straight six cylinder or paid for the upgrade for the V8 VW.
