Hello my name is Nathan. I am new to the AAAVW forum and the VW world. I have always loved and wanted a VW Squareback as far back as I can remember. After all these years I finally pulled the trigger and picked up a ’71 Squareback. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but just wanted to take the time to introduce myself.

Welcome to the club Nathan!
It doesn't look like the image works. Some servers don't allow hot-linking of images.
Congrats on your purchase.

Thanks everyone.
I've stripped down the interior to get a better idea of what I was looking at and found the pan had a little more rust than I thought, so that'll need to be addressed at some point in the near future. The PO started work on a 2110cc motor and I need to get the fan and fan housing all hooked up and make some final connections to get the car up and running. Does any one have connections/ideas on where to find a windshield locally?
