If I purchased a 1960's beetle for my only/primary vehicle... would I still be able to drive it on the road 5-10 years from now?

Asked by Feb 07, 2014 at 12:42 AM about the Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: General

I've been thinking of selling my 2012 Honda Fit (which is an absolutely great vehicle) and
purchasing a restored 1960's VW bug (with A/C) and using the bug as my only/primary
vehicle... I had a bug all throughout high school and college and loved it and have never
enjoyed a vehicle as much as I did back then, and now I'm wondering if it would be
foolish to purchase a bug because I don't know what types of future regulations might
keep me from driving such an old car on the road. Should I even be worried about this?
Are there any other predicaments I should consider when swapping out a modern vehicle
for a classic one?

That would be neat. I see no reason not to drive an old bug. Just be aware, you will be fixing /working on it more than a newer car, but it could be cheaper. Just keep it maintained and have fun with it.
