    Awesome Car! — Cheap and easy to fix up. A fun toy for what it cost me. Needs disc brakes in the front tho and performance would be a lot better. Lasted 40 years, hoping for 40 more. I love this little car!

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

    Pros: fun and quick

    Cons: need some mechanic experience

    The Dream Vehicle — This is the best of the "original" Volkswagens before requirements and regulations ruined the "Peoples' Car." There is just no experience of "oneness" with your car in sound, feel and emotion. Obviously it is the car for the sixties generation to own and drive .... simply for fun and the love of it!

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

    Pros: sound; feel; history; emotional connectivity

    Cons: none

    Classic Vw's Rule!!! — Fun car to drive, great on gas, gets attention everywhere I go, kids instantly start playing "slug buggy" and at some point everyone has either owned one or knows someone who has owned one and has fond memories of it.

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

    Pros: It's a classic that gets everyone's attention.

    Cons: It doesn't have a V-8...built for economy ...not for performance.

    Great All Around Car And Classic. — The VW beetle is the quintessential economy car of the 60's and 70's. They didn't come with a lot of power but handled like a sports car and are easy to fix. With so many still being driven around, and so many aftermarket parts available today it is still an economical though classic car to own. I don't own one at the moment but I always have my eyes open for another.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive and pleasure to work on.

    Cons: Can't find one for sale.

    Love It! — The '64 Volkswagen Beetle is not for the person who wants to scream down the hiway, darting through traffic, leaving weaker, less-expensive cars in the dust. The old VW bug is more for the Zen-Taoist driver who likes to feel at one with the car, peacefully enjoying the countryside, winding along a river road to the sound of the perfectly tuned sewing machine engine. If you appreciate old-world craftsmanship, and realize that the journey IS the destination, this wonderful car may be for you. Fun to drive? Oh, yeah.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Wonderfully built, easy to fix, available parts, very good re-sale value.

    Cons: Slow, few amenities, low technology, fewer mechanics that understand it.

    Pos '64 Vw — A true POS. Used to huff it's way up any grade over 5 degrees and more than a half mile long on the Interstate at about 12 MPH roaring like a castrated babboon. Grandmothers in Buicks passing you at speeds in excess of 50 MPH faster than it would go with the accelerator floored. Not a performance issue but it did manage to blow out the windshield wiper motor in the worst blizzard in PA history at 5:30 PM on a Friday night on the Schuykill Expressway leaving Philly on the way back to Scranton. Fortunately I located a mechanic who sold and installed the motor for $35 and had me on my way by 6:30. Then he gave me the best advice I ever received. He said you're from coal country right? Yep. Find a stippin' and push it over the edge. Mercifully it blew a valve right through the block when a friend borrowed it. I traded the remains to get the inspection sticker on a rusting hulk of a 1967 Plymouth Fury with torn interior and no headliner that burned more oil than gas. A huge step up in automotive class that was only rivaled 25 years later when I went from driving a Ford Ranger pickup to a brand new Porsche 996.

    Pros: It started. Everything after that was downhill.

    Cons: It started.
