Great pics S@~+#0$#. Cant wait for you to sort out the rest of them.

The stretch beetle looks really unique. Besides the limo all the other bugs look really cute. Theres just sometihng about the Beetles which make you tihnk of them as kind hearted cars.

Cheers to all Beetles !!!

Hey, saw an early 60's beetle, in a house in koramangala. Was a dark colour (maybe navy blue) and seemed to be immaculate. Couldn't make out more as the car was half covered, and i was driving. Is this car in the bbc? Can we have more pix?

EDIT: just saw the pics. It looked a lot like the stretch bug. Is it in a house which has a driveway on the left side of the house?

[FONT=Verdana]Hot or Cool Plugs, what does the heat range of a spark plug mean to your Beetle engine?[/FONT]
The spark plugs’ heat range is an index of its capacity to dissipate thermal energy. The different characteristics of automotive engines regarding operating load, compression, engine speed, cooling, and fuel make it impossible to run all engines with a standard spark plug. The same spark plug may get very hot in one engine type, but may reach only a relatively low temperature in another. In the first case, the air-fuel mixture would ignite on the glowing parts of the spark plug projecting into the combustion chamber (pre-ignition) and, in the second case, the insulator tip would soon become so badly fouled by combustion deposits that misfiring would occur. To ensure that the plug runs between the desired temperatures, plugs with different heat capacities were developed. The so called “heat range”, which is assigned to each spark plug, is used to characterize these heat dissipation capacities. A plug with a lower heat range number (BOS-W[FONT=Verdana]7[/FONT]AC) indicates a cooler plug that quickly dissipates heat to the engine block and cooling system, while a higher code indicates a hotter plug that retains heat. By properly selecting the heat range of the plug, it ensures that the plug will operate between the plug’s designed operating range of 500-900 degrees Celsius. In this range, the spark plug will be self-cleaning, yet will not be hot enough to pre-ignite the air/fuel mixture. [/FONT][/COLOR]
