If I ever do another VW project, it'll be a Notchback...

I've only seen fastbacks & wagons, never a notch.  Was this model imported to the US ?

Yes it was... according to Wikapedia, from 1961-1973.  I have more pics but need to do some digging to find 'em.  Here's another shot to hold you over...

Yeah it is a good time ... if I needed a hobby I'd try it out, for sure! Ron's Notch is prettymuch stock, mechanically. He's also got one of the Ozwald family's old sports racers. That sports a healthy 2-liter, and it might weigh 1,000 lbs. I've driven it ... wheeee!!!

Ron's the historian for the PHA — check out the old pics if you haven't yet!
