VW Thing Fun and Maintenance

When I was a kid my dad gave me an oscilloscope and a function generator.  This started me on a journey that turned into a career.  I love what I do, but it's all in the world of electronics and software.  I'm mechanically challenged.

I bought this 1973 Volkswagen Thing for three reasons.  First, I have thought they were cool since my friend Eric and I used to gawk at them on Long Island as teenagers.  Second, opportunity arose - I found this old thing on Cape Cod, within driving (well, towing) distance, almost all original and in pretty good condition but needing some attention here and there.  Finally, I want to be a little less "mechanically challenged."
This is supposed to be a hobby, a learning experience, and oh yeah something fun to drive for the brief but wonderful Rochester summer.

I'll try to make it interesting.  :-)
