No. I've got the old engine, it's only 295 hp.

350 and the average speed (uphills, pit stops, towns etc) would be more like 35 
and 350/35 = 10.  And the max I could handle in a day driving a splitty is 
about 5 hours so that means 2 days going and 2 days back + 3 days there is a 
whole week.  Don't have a degree in engineering from A&M but I can figure that

Uh; we're talking about a bone stock 40 hp panel van with a factory stated top 
speed of 56mph and it's way over 300 miles to Fredricksburg.  I would have to 
leave Wed to get there and take till the next Wednesday to get back.  It 
cruises real nice on the highway at about 50, but no way am I driving 300+ 
miles averaging about 35 mph.  It ain't like cruising a phat chick at 65-70.  
Or even a later model splitty that will cruise at 65-70 also.

Plan on leaving Nac around 5:00 am Friday arriving at Bev's house in Austin 
around 9:30 and leaving soon after that for Fredricksburg.  Will be departing 
the vicinity of Brodie Lane and William Cannon maybe around 10:00 or 11:00.

I will be attending my first TX V-Dub Classic next weekend.  I plan to leave on 
Friday morning or early Friday afternoon and would like to cruise with some 
fellow TCBers.  
If anyone is interested please let me know.  I prefer the safety of traveling 
in numbers.  
One other thing--I saw a 78 super beetle vert for sale today, it looks very 
clean and the owner claims 35K original miles.  I can get the phone # if anyone 
is interested.  The asking price was $9K.
