Babe Mobile — This was my college car, after throwing the rod thru the bottom of the 55. After getting hit I found a wrecking yard who would repair the dents and paint it this awesome orange! We had a VW club in college and used to do rally's. It would be down to second gear going up hill but it would go like hell downhill... 36 hp.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The color

Cons: The performance

The Amazing Beetle — The care was fuel efficiant (naturally). It was easy to maintain and well built. Acceleration, braking, and handling were excellent for the size car it was. We had a lot of fun driving this car in town and out on country roads. It did remarkably well on the hills of eastern Kansas.

Pros: small, easy to maintain, fuel efficient, fun to drive

Cons: small (although it could carry four adults easily, but not on long trips).

Well.....not Exactly — if you want to get echnical with me its really a dune buggy. 2 dunebuggies to be exact. lol the one is my dad and the other is mine. mine has a 2400 motor in it and my dads has a 1600 in his. they were both bought just as frams and we did the rest

Pros: great for messing around with...especially in the mud

Cons: hard to shift with the clutch being the way it is

Car was in excellent shape. My reason for not buying it was the lack of power seats. I have shoulder problems that make it hard to use manual seats, i.e. the pumping action required to raise and low... Read More
