  1. Like others have said here. If not for you, how about your friend. Imagine seeing your friends car starting to burn and you had your fire extinguisher at home in your garage?
  2. That must have felt horrible. Couldnt imagine. Sorry to hear that. Maybe others can learn from that terrible expierience you went through and prevent the same thing from happening to them one day.
  3. Schwimmers did come with a tool box that was really cool. At least most of them had it I believe. Here are some photos of a 1942 KdF tool book I have. Wish I had some of these tools! 😊 Maybe one day I'll find one for my collection.
  4. Maybe it was my friend Rich's Demo? That was back in the mid 80s and 90s. Was always fun to watch folks reaction, especially at a Non-VW event. My 44' and 47' beetles will fun to crankstart up at carshows for folks never having seen that done before. Gotta finish em first though.
  5. Does anybody remember the VW option (aftermarket) pulley, and rope with T handle? The pulley attached to the engine Pulley and you would be able to pull start the motor with the rope and T handle just like starting up an old lawn mover. My friend Rich had one and would do demonstrations of starting the car up this way on his 59 beetle at car shows.
  6. You are on the old site. This is the best one (at this time) to see everything. https://m.facebook.com/autolabradio If you scroll down you can watch todays show. Scroll down more and you can view last Saturday's show. So tgat you know, AutoLab Radio Show has been getting upgraded with a new website, a podcast, facebool Live, etc. So alot going on all at the same time because we growing. Thanks for tuning in!
  7. Yes, this morning! The good news is every show we do is archived each week and be seen any time right here: https://m.facebook.com/autolabradio Enjoy!
  8. I remember seeing once a top US war hero soldier honored by having a US flag draped over the coffin that was placed sideways in the back of a WW2 Jeep. Fellow soldiers walked along both sides of the jeep as pallbearers.
  9. Not my first thought either, but the old Land Rovers are as indearing to the British as our WW2 Jeeps are to Americans. When I thought about it that way, plus knowing Prince Philip actually worked on Land Rovers as mechanic and loved them so much, I started to get it. He was a Car guy.
  10. Brian, looks like instead of "SWEET CAROLINE" maybe the Beach Boys hitg "I GET AROUND" might be more appropriate for you!
  11. Update: Ivan Dutton, the Buggatti restorer will be on the following week so that AutoLabs own Robert Erskine can cover a story LIVE from the UK about Prince Phillip's custom built hearse that Prince Philip designed himslf. Prince Philip as well as the Queen herself, were mechanics during the War, so Robert Erskine will be talking about that as well. I will share what I saw at the AACA Southeastern Spring Nationals in Charlotte last weekend. And of course, my friend (and mystery guest) will be on LIVE to share the amazing story of the famous Porsche 550 Spyder "container" find that he bought and now owns. Watch the show LIVE here on Facebook live: https://m.facebook.com/autolabradio Saturday morning 7am - 9am AM970 The show is archived each week and be seen later on at our website: www.theAutoLabShow.com
  12. Fire extinguishers are like Car Insurance. You should have it, but never want to have to use it.
