My Daily Driver — I love my car, It may not look that great to most people but to my it couldn't be anymore perfect. My 65" is sporting the original factory paint, dropped to the ground with a nice set of empi rims. I have a 1600cc I pulled out of a 75 super beetle that I plan on dropping into the car in the future.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: A little scraping!

A One-of-a-kind Custom Bug — I love this car. It's like driving a new 50 year old car. Not many of these old Bugs left in this kind of condition, and none that look and drive like this one. Hope everyone gets to drive one like this at least once in their life.

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

Pros: A nice riding and driving little Bug

Cons: Too nice to drive just anywhere because not everyone respects other's property

Can't Wait To Get Her Rolling — This car is a beautiful specimen. Very little rust, good paint, many original parts, the engine is true, and she's fun to drive. But she really likes to mark her territory, so she needs a little TLC. Once I get her rolling reliably, I'm going to show her the country!

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

Pros: She's a Classic!

Cons: She's not runnin' yet.

German Engineering At It's Finest — It's an aircooled VW... what's not to like?!!?!? A lot of power that you can really feel. This is a drivers vehicle. If you're looking for auto seat adjustments and power windows and heat and a/c and what not this is not for you. If you love cars and driving them then get yourself into a VW!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, fun to work on... it's a lifestyle!

Cons: Nothing

Its A 45years Old Economy Car It Is What It Is! Awesome! — car is rough from 45 years of hard use and abuse but i wouldn't trade it for the world. upate the engine to dual port dual relief, disc brakes up front and put booster fans in heating ducts and it would be perfect

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its freaking awesome!

Cons: rust

A Thrill And A Classic — I own a Java Green 1965 VW beetle with the standard 1200 40 hp motor. I love this car. She is 100% stock and a hoot to drive. The only draw back is the lack of some type of forced air when the weather is bad. Everyone loves to come tell stories how their families all have owned one and the crazy stuff that happened to them. I cant think of a better entry collector car for an enthusiast to begin with.

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

Pros: Head turner, great gas mileage, cheap to repair and maintain

Cons: No A/C, slightly noisy, slower than most cars

Best Selling Car In The World For Many Reasons. — My 1965 Herbie is my pride and joy. We bought him in August 2008. He is believed to have had only one owner until 2006 in Texas. In 2006 he was imported to the UK and was put on display in a private collection. He has been fitted with a Brazilian 1600 engine with a bit more punch than a standard 1200. He is by no means perfect but he's pretty bloody good. We go to as many VW shows as we can and we have just been given a place on the VWOCGB stand at the NEC Classic Car Show!!!

Pros: Ultimate cool to suit a laidback lifestyle.

Cons: If you need something fast, modern, reliable, comfortable, inconspicuous and practical this is not the car for you.

Jen's Dream Car — i love the look, the convertables the best, four cylinde montor. i love the fact that the trunk is in the front and the back is where the montor is. i like the bugs that have the wind up looking key on the back. The color would have to be red with black dots on it and on the hood eyes so it looks like a lady bug.

Pros: great if you like old classic cars and perfect if you love the gas miles.

Cons: doesnt go fast, like top speed 70

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
