Interesting comparison between 356 Porsche and VW Beetle

This is for all you closet Porsche and VW Beetle Nutters. I'm one of the latter Nutters!

They also have heaps of other vids on Porsches and Ferraris, particularly the 308 series.

Franny and Heidi run their own garage in Colorado. Their how-to vids are very good for the DIY car owners.

It's a shame they don't do Mercedes! :sad11:

Thanks Mark. Glad you appreciated it! My first three cars were all Beetles. :wav:
