VW Beetle spotted in Brunswick
Got the green light to buy some toys! In case you need a reminder, here is a refresher on what we’re working with
2 weeks of Beetle ownership and I’ve already been Volkswagen’d.
This is something that I’ve been repeating ever since I was a kid. As much as I like the 991, I like the 996 just a little bit more.
Can someone help me get a little more illuminated on the layman monikers for the current car designs out there? It’s clumsy to say FR or Front mid or Mid rear or rear and then have to clarify, and also, it’s not entirely apt as it’s about bodywork, really, which the drivetrain layout correlates to but won’t correlate…
I’ve always known what cars my parents owned before I was forming memories, but until tonight it never struck me to ask my parents what cars their parents had growing up.
Turns out my grandpa had some pretty sweet rides and thing for flat engines.
He had a cloth-top 56' Beetle, that, in my mind, is spec’d like this:
VW ‘Beetle’ Hebmuller “pretzel window” coupe c1952
Aperson to the front desk please
I know you clowns like this kind of thing.
Saw this while doing Wobbles the Mind’s direct replacement challenge. Almost kinda want it (not enough to get it), even though it’s #1 someone else’s project and #2 a Beetle kit car.
I can’t tell the difference either...
Post all the old Beetles!
It’s an annual event in Austin, Texas. The June Bug Rally. It’s not a rally in the traditional sense, more of a motorized treasure hunt, and it brings out some of the nicest old Volks in the area.
Old Swedish custom jobs didn’t just include Volvo Amazons..
Holy crap, a GT3 RS! Sorry for potato quality.
Gentlemen, these are trying times. These are Victorian times. Enthusiasm for naked engine bays has been thwarted by Puritans who’ve buttoned the under-bonnet tighter than a vicar’s vestments. Therefore, let us remember a time when men could dream about diving wrench-first into an exposed compartment.
