1961 Volkswagen BeetleReview

Volkswagen Beetle Ragtop — Well what can you say about a car that's been around for over 47 years. Yeah it's old but this one is like new... now! Once it's on the road I'll tell you all about it ;o) That should be next week with a small 1200 motor but the big 2L lump will go in next spring.

Pros: Every thing - the ragtop is very cool

Cons: None! It's old so it's always gonna have a few quirks but that just adds charachter

1961 Volkswagen BeetleReview

Best Known Car In History — Baja style fenders, baja gas pedal, Pipe bumpers, engine is a converted 12 volt 71 engine out of a baja, custom EMPI carbuerator, 1600 CC, 60 HP when tuned perfect. Got some nice rubbers on the back, big offroad tires, take it out mudding occasionaly. Love the car, always get complements. The only thing more famous in car history than the car itself is it's rough handling. It has problems fairly often, but it doesn't have any stupid new car kinks

Pros: fun car, complements, if you ever break down, everyone on the road has probably had one at one time, so they pull over and help you out!
Parts are cheap, you can easily fix up one to original quality for about 4 grand
Availablity of parts is huge
Drives GREAT through anything, snow, mud, dirt, always gets you through

Cons: Rough handling, high winds blow you across the road, adjusting valves brakes timing

A Fun Little Car To Play In! By sunflowergal

This car is great for a single person or couple but the back seat will not accommodate a car seat and growing toddler. The car is not made to carry any cargo. It would be perfect for a second car! Read More

This Has Been A Great Car To Drive By NanasCar
