I am ancient. You may call me ancient master. I probably have more time behind the wheel of a bug than some of the new kids on the block are old. Someone asked me at college if they had pencils when I went to highschool. I think we used sharpened sticks and clay tablets. Unfortunately I am still as horny as I was in highschool. That was forty or fifty years ago. Elvis was the man. TV was black and white, music came on records, they didn't have smog, terrorists, or computers. Mac Donalds cost $3.50 to feed a family of 8 and that was outrageously expensive. But I don't care what happened then, it is being a part of what is happening now that is important.

Man, I'm geezing in this group. I think Chigger has me beat since I never quite got the appeal of Elvis; although, I did like hunka-hunka-burnin' love and If you're lookin' for trouble ... you've come to the right place. Sorry, I don't remember the titles.

The black-and-white reference for me was The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. My brother, who is 8½ years my elder, wanted to watch. I had to watch since he basically loathed the show. My musical tastes were altered immediately.

The McDonald's reference rang a bell for me, too. I remember diving for change after morning swim practice so my friend and I could feast on our bounty.

Now, half of The Beatles are dead, half of The Who are dead, and half of my parents are dead. I have three color TVs, 150 channels, and nothing to watch. Thank goodness for my family, friends, and future.

I am 20 years old. My Bug was born in May of 1972, and I was born in December of 1982, so that makes my bug around 10 years older than I am.

Supa Ninja,
Looks like your statement was spot on. I also thought it would be for the same reasons.
When I was born, beetles were still made with reclining head lamps... (thirty something).

I am 58. I got interested in Bugs in the early 60s when I saw a new Bug with a new Porsche motor in it. It definitly got my attention. In '68 after a rollover in my '65 Porsche I transfered everything I could into our second car, a '66 bug..... good times.

I'm 33, and got my first bug when i was 16 - i still have it 17 years later so have owned it for more than half my life...

When can i start my mid-life crisis? That would be a good excuse to blow a years salary at Remelle...
