Seems that its a popular thing. I bought my first car when I was 15 , which was a 69 beetle, and I still have it almost 21 years later. I completely tore the car apart and re-did everthing then, and now Im tearing it apart again to do it right. Funny how things change when you have a income that pays more then 6.00 an hour.
Later Darren

Just noticed I didnt mention anything about my 55, had it for one year and havent even touched it. Cant decide if I should finish the 69 (about 75% complete) or spend all my time on the 55(which needs some TLC) Any ideas, what would you do?

I'm 31 and my Super is 32. My parents bought a standard new in 71. I only paid a couple hundred less for mine than they did theirs. I thought it to be kind of funny anyway. I had a 68 that had a baja kit on it when I was 17. Now that I think about it, my parents bought there first bug when they were 17 too. My Mom has had a few since; but my Dad just had the 1. They are divorced{thought that would make sence of the difference in how many they have owned}. I hope not to ever be bugless again unless I get a Ghia sometime, then maybe.

My mother was 8 when my Beetle was built. She's a 1948, it's a 1956. Although, if I take into account all the modern equipment (996 brakes, 1969 chassis, 1987 944 rear suspension, etc), I think the bug would average somewhere close to my age. I'm 25 btw.

My 1st car that I owned was a 73 Super Beetle. I am 50 now and I am currently working on a 75 1303 GL. My wife says that I am trying to recapture my past but what she doesn't know is that this car will be faster than the past could ever be. I just want to drive the car the way it should have been built in the 1st place. I can't wait to get on the road and eat some rice.
