Re: Back in the game!

I don’t think that type of advertising would go over very well today.

It reminded me of a story an older guy told me. He was driving in the thick german fog and ran off the road, hit a tree, was ejected through the windshield and walked away.

For anyone that has driven an old VW, that’s a hard story to picture. That car fit me like a shoe.

A VW is also the kinda car where people advocated not wearing seatbelts because sometimes “it’s better be be thrown free from the crash”. 😬

Too bad your so far away from me, I still lots of old type 1 parts around.

Really nice car

My first car was a 76 beetle. Exactly the same color as yours. Drove through whole of southern africa with it. Sometimes people could not believe that I got to some places with the only 2 wheel drive bug. Bugs are really good in sand but not so much in rocky areas.

Have fun and enjoy.

ha, wow. I totally thought it was gonna be about a kid and safety but there's not much safety in those things so... sterotypes about women being shitty drivers makes sense

Re: Back in the game!

Hi, how are you enjoying your car? I'm just looking at one on Mpls cl, same yr, not quite as nice as yours, but rust free....but $14,900! Yikes, but they are getting rare, and Maxi's are going for over a k now....I want another air-cooled, but here's the thing, I drove one about 15 yrs ago, and was astonished at how primitive it felt compared to a modern car, and until recently I have been the "beater king", but my '94 Tercel is like leaps and bounds ahead of the beetle, but still want one, I guess my question is, are you able to enjoy it as you thought you would be able to? Are you happy to have made the purchase? I totally trust your opinion as you are prob the only person I have never met whom I would buy any mechanical thing from sight unseen, as I know you "get it". I just bought myself a Lincoln Town car, cuz, you know, I deserve it, so not buying any cars anytime soon, but an air-cooled is a dream to have once again, and curious about your thoughts on it now, vs. when we had them as kids. I so miss my '71 super convert....
