The Sea Blue Bug behind it has been to the show a few times up there and the Notchback wants its turn.
I am the second owner of the notchback and it's very stock and original with original paint that shined up very well.
It was very well taken care of and it runs very well and to me is so fast/speedy comrade to the 1200cc's I am used to.
However, pushing and bump starting a notchback is not as easy as pushing and bump starting a Bug!
It has been a great car and we hope to drive it up soon.

I took the Notchback on a cruise a couple weekends ago to the Snoqualmie ski area here in Washington.
Just as I started it up to leave the summit and head back down it vapor locked.
As I worked to fix it I pulled the metal input tube on the fuel pump right out of the fuel pump.
I got the air out of the lines and had a nervous drive home with a fire extinguisher at the ready thinking the little tube would pop out and spill fuel all over the hot block.
I didn't know the old fuel pumps used pressure fit tubes and I plan to put a wire on the fuel line and around the fuel pump or something that will secure the fitting in place.
