of Cal-Finn Inc.
I am Calhoun, Gene. Also known as Cal of Cal-Finn Inc.
I have always loved the OLD VW's, fixing them up, saving
them from the crusher, and doing my best to preserve them
has become my passion.
My best friend, whom I consider a
brother, and I found that we both shared a passion for automobiles,
VW's in particular. So he and I started Cal-Finn Inc. In the past
two years we have rescued seven busses from death, about 20
or 30 beetles from the crusher, and we are attempting now to
obtain 16 ghias from one man who has chosen to let them become
part of the landscape.
Finn and I also share a common interest
in daily driving machines, Audi. I recently purchased a 1958
split window, walk thru, camp mobile type2 which I am beginning
the early stages of restoration on.
I have a 1980 VW Rabbit convertible
which is my wife's that I am preparing to rewire due to a previous
owners moronic attempt at do-it-yourself wiring (ha ha). Anyway,
I am just a VW nut any way you slice it. I am always tinkering with
them and trying to save them whenever possible.

Thank you to Gene Calhoun for sharing his story and for acting on the love he has for VW's!
