Recently, our friend & customer, Joe Lapille, was involved in an accident while working on his bug. He
was grinding out the bellhousing of the transmission case on his 1965 VW Beetle, so that a 12 volt
flywheel would fit (A '65 uses a smaller 6 volt.) The transmission is made of magnesium. The shavings
somehow ignited and left him badly burned. He will  be spending the next month or so undergoing skin
grafts & recovering at Lubbock's University Medical Center. Our thoughts and prayers are with him &
his family throughout this very difficult time.

Amanda, Joe's niece has sent up a blog to track his progress.

Here is a link if you would like to drop him a line.

His friends have established a fund at Wells Fargo to help his family with medical expenses.
