This site is my long form blog on my automotive interests, especially as they pertain to my love of vintage VW Beetles, specifically my 72 1302 Żuczek Brzęczyszczykiewicz and my 79 1303 cabriolet Murbella.
I was out of Beetles for decades after my 71 Standard was towed away by the police in 1994 and in 2017 decided I wanted to get back into them.
I acquired Murbella, my 1979 Cabriolet survivor in July of 2017 and she will remain my stock survivor as long as I can keep her that way, upgrading only necessary components and maintaining the status quo as best I can.
Żuczek came about in wanting to make a Beetle completely my own, as well as have something to do that allowed me to get dirty and expand my skills.
Żuczek will undergo a multi-year long restoration and modding tentatively called Żuczek 2025. He will look nothing like he does now once it is over.
