June’s collective

A lot has happened this month.  We are actively gathering items for our show raffle, door prizes and goodie bags.  We have been building up the engines that were donated to the club and will have them available for sale.

I was honored to attend the City of Firsts VW club meeting  on Fathers day and boy was I impressed at how well oiled things operate.  I want to get our club to function and operate like other area clubs…  Show season is in full swing now and my web team and public relations guys are hard working to get our show out and about … Please make sure your passing out the flyers for the show.

Our  research team is working hard to keep our calendar full.   Were  traveling as a group and going to different shows.    Looking forward to seeing this years  show and hearing all about what everyone would like to see changed for next years event.

Gary’s 1971 Mod T

This beautiful vehicle was purchased by Gary and Alaine in June 5th of 2011. It is sitting on a 1971 160cc VW chassis with a 4 speed transmission and an independent rear suspension.

It was produced in 1971 in Pompano Beach Florida. In 1973 the plant burnt down stopping the production on Dolphin Mod T. The body had no manufacturing marks on it but has the distinctive Dolphin dash. After extensive research it has been found that this is now one of four left in existence. Dolphin build three different models: the Peanut, a pickup version called the Cricket, and a full length model call the Mod T.

The body consists of 3 main pieces: the main body, the hood and the commonly missing rear engine cover. The body is constructed of fiberglass and has a T front with a rounded boat tail rear, the fenders are wide lipped and flat topped. The Mod T most likely came with a canvas top  and side curtains, these parts are no longer but a memory with top frame mounting bracket and snaps as a fading reminder.

Gary and his wife Alaine purchased the car in Harrison, Michigan on June 5th 2011.

Wayne’s 2009 Jetta

For this months Member’s Ride, we are showcasing Wayne’s 2009 Jetta. Wayne joined the group late last year, just in time to help be a part of the 16th Annual Show.
He bought his Jetta February 19th 2016 completely stock, and it didn’t stay that way for long. One of the first things done to the car was 3 days after it was purchased. Wheels Wheels Wheels! While they were nothing super fancy the but 18’s are way cooler than 16″ stock wheels. Though out the year of ownership the modifications have just kept going.
