Great Car — its a great first car because its easy to work with. The one i have is a good car but i cant get the thing to start i need help. i can turn it over and the belts and pullys turn over with no problem. i do have gas and oils yet it still will not turn over and run. i have a suspision it is the carburetor but i do not see any problems with it unless you have to have the oil bath top on when you turn it over. any help would be great

Pros: 70s and 71s vw bug body parts are compatible with this year

Cons: interior side panels get weak slowly

Fun Car To Drive And Get Stares And Thumbs Up From Pedestrians And Other Drivers. — Bought this car in California in 1985 as a spare vehicle. Original color was kind of a dark tan but it was kind of ugly. Had it painted with an excellent paint job in 1989. It now is the color of Pistachio ice cream (Light Green) and really stands out. Paint is still good after 23 years of California, Chicago, and Florida weather.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: What can you say about a 43 year old car? Best looking old VW in the area

Cons: Nothing really

A Beautiful Bug! — The VW Bug is an eye catcher and great conversational piece. It is excellent on gas mileage and very capable of getting you to your favorite beach and up mountains. I have enjoyed simply going out on Sunday drives to my favorite coffee cafe shop or favorite parks for a picnic.

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

Pros: Great weekend fun car and for daily commute car to work or school! Very low maintenance!

Cons: Small cargo space.

Go Out And Get One — In the procces of rebuilding and having fun. Its my every day driver. I bought the car from a person that onln drove it 6,900 miles, and it sat untill I came and saved its life. These are by far the the must uncomplicated cars to work on.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun and easy to work on.

Cons: not a damb thing.

Simply The Best Car Ever Made — simple easy to work on. extensive aftermarket support. great people. the performance is, well, terrible compaired to today's cars. altho, with the aftermarket support, these cars can be made to outperform most of the top sports cars. everybody either has owned a vw, or knows somebody that has, so the car is as much a conversation piece as transportation

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nothing like driving the most recognized car in the world

Cons: more maintenance to keep running.

The "modern" Beetle :-) — New project for 2009, a 1969 Beetle. It's a 1300 model, with a dechromed body, and in a good general shape for its age... The chassis will be rebuilt, new colour, updated interior, and a prepared engine. I want this car to be my daily driver, a classic California look from the late 70s.

Pros: It's a Volkswagen...

Cons: ... it doesn't run yet!

Vw Bug! — Bought this car in 2002 and it cost £600 - Approx £8k later and this is it now! Pic 1 shows the front suspension wound right down and narrowed beam, 20mm ground clearance!!! Images 2 shows rear wheels wound right down too! Spent 2k on the interior seats from Bernard Newbury and the wheels cost £1k... oh and its now on its 3rd engine (they keep blowing up on me!!) My baby, only comes out on sunny days hence its only done 30miles this year!!

Pros: Appearance and simplicity

Cons: MPG sucks - about 20mpg!!!

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
