Pros

Does not eat up money.

Cons

It's old, and important to keep it in good condition, so if you dont have the patience then not your car.

Idk — A very reliable car. Easy when it comes to maintenance, does not cost a lot of money. Good gas mileage. Always fun to drive standard in a third world country, it's like playing a video game. I love it! Everyone should own at least one classic VW.

Primary Use: Family transportation

I Love My Car ! — Best car ever ! Doesn't matter that it's not drivable right now. It still makes me smile ;] You don't get a lot of performance, but you get a lot of power to yourself, because it's never boring and you never know what's going to happen when driving he (not it !). VW Beetle doesn't need a lot of mechanical skills to fix it, it doesn't need expensive parts or etc. And it looks way better than most (for me all) of todays automobiles !
