**SHOP IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED**
**Online store is still open. If it's in stock, it ships.**
With COVID-19 and my daughter doing online school, I've got no time for shop activities. Shutdown the shop for a while until I can figure out a way to serve my VW people and still be a kick ass father and husband. Will update the site and alert social media when I'm able to be back at it. Most likely not until some time into 2022. Thanks for your patience!
I'm Aaron D. Badertscher. The owner/operator of this one man show called Wide Five. Just wanted to take a second to thank you for stopping by the site and to let you know if you have any questions about ANYTHING to please feel free to contact me. Stay Rad!

Here at Wide Five we specialize in all mechanical aspects of your Vintage air cooled VW.
Suspension, engine, transaxle, whatever your precious VW needs, we're here for it.
I actually own and drive my VW's, so I know what it takes to keep them on the road and confident that we'll actually make it to our destination.
Always interested in buying more projects if you know of any. Can't save them all, but we try!
