He is in an induced coma with a couple of clots on his brain and a broken eye 
socket among other injuries.  The entire VW and hotrod communities worldwide 
have rallied to Pete and his wife Melanie's aid with prayer, good thought, 
mojo, and cash.   Well over $5000 has been raised so far to help them cover 
expenses.  A tragedy that has restored or confirmed many people's (including my own) 
faith in mankind.
 Update (finally) from the local media: http://www.katu.com/stories/78231.html
 I've seen you, Bob Notch and Brian Fye posting over there, so this could be 
loosely considered T3-related .. I think. :-)  >>

You forgot about Phillip, as he's there too. We're over there trying to let 
others know how superior  the type 3 is compared to a bug. I like going there 
because so many people there think outside the box (or outside the box that the 
box came in :D). What happened to Pete, could have happened to any of us, but 
like John, it restored my faith in mankind with the outporing of support.

John, have you chopped off the roof of that "new" Fastback yet? I love what 
you're doing with the car, can't wait to see the windsheild moved forward, as I 
know that'll be some creative work. : ) I figured out how you could get that 
body line to move thru the door too, use some ghia rear quarter panel parts. : 
) Use the left quarter on the right, and the right on the left. It should 
work.  In a couple of days I'll post some pics of the "pile of bleached bone's" 
(Keith's tag name for it, that stuck) new look. My son re-worked a bunch of 
areas (using more type 3 parts) that he wasn't totally happy with before, and 
repainted the car. It's looking good. :D  Eric, if you're still out there, I've 
started reconstructing my 71 Roadster 2 project to accept the Golf/Rabbit 
convertible top frame. The car should end up looking like John's sketch of a type 3 
Heb. : )  Just a quickie update from north of Detroit.
