    if the guy still has it in a few weeks

    i've always wanted a VW bug since i was young.. since i'll have a garage to rebuild one i think i may buy one.. i was looking around and found this one in my area kinda

    my favorite year is a '63.. but '65 is close enough.. basically the same thing

    TheSamba.com :: VW Classifieds - 1965 bug

    when i met my GF she had a 71 bug that had a brand new engine in it and her sister wrecked it.. well she still has the engine and an entire car to pick parts from.. so i say why the hell not.. i basically have everything to get it on the road..

    Rock that thing out. Make sure you convert it to 12v if it is still 6v.

    Bugs are really easy to work on and modify. ULTRA cheap parts too, still.

    I had a 1970 Superbeetle flat window, and I hated that thing though. The bodies go ass over tea kettle during braking.

    I would have expected that comment from Bob Vila. Beetles do take a rollover pretty well, lol.
