She's home. My 1974 VW Super Beetle. I hope to have everything ripped out before Halloween, and maybe start building it back up next spring. If anyone has any motor suggestions I'm here for it. Looking to use an electronic transmission or just do a straight connection.

From the factory this weighs about 1,850 lbs and the ICE made something in the neighborhood of 60 ft lbs torque so I am thinking I have low power demands and some room to grow regarding the vehicle's weight. The fuel tank is just above and behind the front axle, so there is already a compartment in the ideal place for a battery.
