1972 Super Beetle With An Auto Clutch — The car handled great in the snow and was reasonably maintenance free. Parts were cheap when you needed to repairs something. 0-60 in ten minutes. The heater?? well, that was not even optional, as well as the window defroster. Even with those issues, I still liked the car very much.

Pros: Fun, fun, fun to drive

Cons: No heat

Footloose Classic — I bought this car for pretty cheap and am now restoring it. This Super Beetle is a classic, and if you have the time and patience to restore one, go for it! When you get it finished, there's nothing better.

Pros: This is an absolutely beautiful and classic car!  Need I say more?

Cons: Needs a lot of maintenance and/or replacements.

It's A Bug And Cool For The Beach Too. — It would be nice to get the butterfly on the automatic choke to work right for the Solex carb, have tried to adjust it and it works most of the time. A new carb with a manual choke would be great or a new replacement maybe with auto-choke, great little car though.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive when all is well with the Solex carb auto-choke.

Cons: none
