Still got the 66' Beetle I bought when I was 15 sitting in my folks' garage.
I need to get it out of there one day and get it back on the road.
Nice buggy!

I have a 1974 VW Thing - I have been building and rebuilding VWs since high school and I have owned at least one of every model.

I had every VW except the Thing and KG.
My favorite was a 67 SO42 Westy I got for $800. Pimpest ride at my whole high school!

I used to have a 69 beetle with the drop spindles on the front & a buddy of mine had one also but he Hung a 350 chev off the back, couldn't drive the thing if the street was wet the front end was so light.
