The Best VW Repair Manual Ever: “How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot”

Wednesday, 5 November 2014

This predates the “For Dummies” books, and although it focuses on VWs, it’s also a primer on how all the systems in a gasoline-powered car work, how to maintain them, how to diagnose trouble and how to fix it.  It’s written as if your Uncle Joe was coaching you, and the diagrams (and comics) are hand-drawn in Robert Crumb style. I learned a lot from it when I was in my 20s, and the book is still in print via Amazon here.

Even if you don’t own an old VW, get a copy and read it just for fun, enjoy the illustrations, and pass it on to your favorite teenage greasemonkey like I did. (It’s the perfect Christmas gift for someone with a VW, an adjustable wrench, a hammer and a couple of screwdrivers.)

Oh, and click on the image to see the big picture.

VW Camper Camper

Live in it. Love in it. Gets good mileage, poor performance on steep grades, but you can repair everything on it with a hammer, a screwdriver, an adjustable wrench and a couple of beers.

Rat Rod Trike

Bunkessa spotted this Rat Rod Trike in front of the local Home Depot yesterday and thought “I know who’d like this.”

She was right. More Rat Rods here.

That’s so lame it’s awesome. It needs flame decals pointing the wrong way.

Out of Beer?

Wednesday, 5 January 2011

This is the very essence of hope: scraping all the ice and snow off with a credit card and hoping you can drive it out of the drift. We all know why he’s going to all that trouble, too, don’t we?

Pretty picture, nonetheless. [Found here.]
