This last month with all the problems it finally made me realize that I need to get rid of the motorcycle and get some kind of reliable car. 1974 'Fusca' Volkswagen BugAlso I need transportation personally to the doctors with my heart problems. I have been offered a 1974 Volkswagen bug ... called a 'fusca' in Brazil ... that was reconditioned by a 'car collector' friend from Recife. February 3, I inspected the car and drove it. It has just been repainted, all the upholstery replaced, engine overhauled, and new tires. Extremely clean, economic, and easy to maintain. Understand that this car should not be confused with our farm school project although I would probably use it to visit local farms and do presentations.

I paid R$ 1,250 deposit for the owner to hold the car (at least for a while) for me to try to raise the balance. It is still there but he won't wait too much longer.

My only real income at this time is my Social Security benefits from the United States ... I get no salary from the school project at this time until if and when we finish the school ... occasionally I get small payments when I do a translation, help with other projects or act as a tourism guide.

I also have a potential buyer for the motorcycle ... The total purchase price is R$ 12,000 (or US$ 5,000) .... For now, the deposit will be deducted.  I would appreciate all the help I can get.
