My 1st car was a 1970 Beetle, that I purchased for $750 when I was 15yr. My father & I restored for over a year to have when I turned 16yr. I had so much fun in this car , that I never purchased another car that wasn’t a VW. My father passed away a little over year ago, and I hit the mid. Life crisis so I bought another one. This time I bought a 1974 beetle that was lost in a warehouse in NC for 26yrs, now with Slade & other of local VW community friends we are slowly but surely restoring this one.
