VonYinzer and I have had that same discussion. The sad (or good) part is: what are the next generation of gear heads working on?

Why is it that it seems all gear heads, at one time or another owned an air cooled VW?

Because the gear heads are the only ones who can keep 'em running?

I've never had one. Does that make me not a gear head?
Although I did rebuild one from the ground up for a guy. So I guess that counts haha.

I would sooooooo pimp a beetle in Herbie colors!

But... my Dad would roll over in his grave if I bought a Vdub.

I fear that there may not be a next generation. If we are lucky they will be keeping the same bikes that we are keeping out of the scrap heap now

Had two beetles including a 73 super beetle, best cars I ever had. People always say to me they are so unreliable, I say show me your new ford after 30 years of being passed down from one mechanically inept person to another!
Aah I miss my beetle......^-^

Any updates on the Bug? Or do I need to drag my 72 Super out of the barn and scare yours into behaving...

Great cars. Nice to see there's another fan of the air-cooled bugs.

Here's my '67

Rad. I had a '66 that literally broke in half. Haha. Got it running like a top and BLAM! End of the line. Had to give up all my VW dreams. Just no room to store/rebuild a car. That said, I have an older hippy friend (he's in his 60s) that I have known for years. Anyway, he's got a 65 Single cab sitting in his yard. All there but rough. According to him, if I help get it back on the road its mine. Looking to start messing with it this summer.
