My first Posting!

I have owned a 59 Bug, 64 Sq Back, and 71 Van. Loved them all however the 71 van I baught new and experienced trans probs after 72K had it rebuilt by VW and still probs until I gave it away in 88.

Loved the van and now see possibilities with a little more power.
I like the 3800 GM type II and later engines.

Is anyone using this engine with it's auto trans and getting rid of the VW transmission and rear end? I'm gun shy of the VW trans/rear end.
