My First Attempt At The California-look.... — This was my first car - bought when I was 16. All the work was carried out by myself and my father - Volksworld Magazine called it the 90's version of the trad-cal-look, and I was pretty pleased with that!

Pros: low n slow

Cons: couldn't really think of any back then...

Cute As A Button, Tight, Easy To Drive — The 1972 Volkswagen SuperBeetle is a bit different from the 1973 like I had previously. There is "barely" a dash, and the windshield is much smaller. Drives better, however.

Pros: economical, efficient, darling

Cons: having ignition troubles lately

Camoflaged 1972 Beetle — This car just oozed cool, did 0 - 60 in about 2 and a half weeks and you had to open a window a bit to shut the door, but this car was amazing

Pros: Everything

Cons: If you don't mind going slow and keep trying to put the shopping in the engine there isn't any cons

The Novelty Wore Off Real Quick. — I thought this would be a good idea for a 2nd car - clearly I had a lot to learn. It was either too hot and you stuck to the seats or when it was raining it was a death wish. It was in the best condition ever - only done 90,000 miles by the one lady owner - its true I swear. I got stupid money for it when I sold it so overall it was worthwhile.

Pros: It was a novelty.

Cons: The list is way too long.

Labor Of Love... — We had no idea of what we were getting into w/ this bug. Time MONEY energy and MORE MONEY!!!! Ha! We love our bug and won't stop until it is perfect. But I liken it to having a Harley Davidson once it starts it doesnot stop!

I Love Her — I love her, My 1972 super was the first car I purchased, and I treasure her. very reliable, if not rather grumpy when its cold out, she is hard to start at those times. I love the attention I get when driving her, it seems as though everyone has had a bug at some point.

Owner for 10 years, 5 months

Miles Driven per Year:300

Pros: great car

Cons: carry a towel cause the defroster doesnt work all that well

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
