Frank Buoniconto is the owner of Gilmore Enterprises. He loves air cooled VW's-- you'll only have to spend a minute on the phone to tell just how passionate he is about the cars. Frank might tell you that he doesn't know a lot of things-- but there are 2 things he does know, unquestionably:
The latter of those two things is why Ed Muha, the founder of Gilmore Enterprises started the company decades ago. He's sold the business to Frank in the past few years, and he also now keeps people cool with new A/C units for their Aircooled VW's. Now when VW first installed these units in their own cars, the units were pretty terrible. Not only did they drain a lot of the horsepower off from the motor (on what was already a pretty slow car), but the things didn't crank out half the air conditioning they needed to keep a few occupants cool.
So Gilmore has done what even Volkswagen themselves never did-- they created air conditioners for your old Volksie that actually work. Using modern technology and Good-American-Know-How, Gilmore Enterprises has created under-dash (and integrated units for the 73-79 Super Bug) units that look downright similar to the ones VW used to offer, but actually keep you cool. They don't make your motor hot, and they keep you cool in the worst of heat. To prove it, Frank moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, when he purchased the business, just to show how effective they are. Well that might not exactly been the reason for the move, but it works.
Frank swears that these units will keep an old Beetle with a 1200 motor cool enough on the inside of the car that you won't even break a sweat, and the motor just hums along like it normally would.
If you have questions, Call Frank. He'll take the time you need to get your questions answered so you can stay cool too. And if you happen to be at one of the local VW shows, look for the Gilmore guys. You'll see them around!
