My wife Gina and I headed to Phoenix, AZ for the 2012 Bugorama. We had many VW plans for the trip. Saturday we started off with the Pomona in Phoenix Car show and swap meet. We had heard there would be a VW section – no such luck. We saw some Ghia parts and 3 or 4 VWs. So after an hour or so we headed to the Grand Opening of Airkewld. Airkewld has been a strong force in supplying high quality aircooled VW parts and has now expanded past just on-line sales to a full fledge store in Goodyear, AZ.
We got there early and Pete gave us a personal tour of the store, garage, and new parts he is carrying in stock –I really like the six shooter clutch cable adjustment nut. All of Pete’s parts are top notch. His finished pans are really impressive. I can’t wait for the type 3 parts.
The 17″ Smoothies are very nice. These rims are very well built. They look just like the original 15″ version. You can see every part is on the wall and in stock. I would love to be able to drive across town and pick up a front beam or a set of disc brakes.
As the Grand Opening progressed the people and VWs started flowing in. I’d like to congratulate Pete and his crew on the grand opening and for a great looking store.
