VW Beetle

 

Ahhh, my very first car, the old VW. You either love them or hate them but I had some fantastic times in this car and was very attached to it.

It was a pile of rust when I bought it, should have been scrapped but I was young and with lots of help and metal plates I managed to make it a mobile pile of rust for a few years.

There was only about a third of a floor in it when I bought it so if you ran fast enough you could save a fortune on fuel, bit of a Freddy Flintstone mobile. Apparently they are air tight and do actually float so I guess mine was a land only based version!

I've got some pictures somewhere which when I find them I will put up. I really did have some great fun in it.

Once you get into Beetles you sort of pick up somewhere along the way that Dr Ferdinand Porsche was responsible for the design of 'the peoples car', and then you find out more about Porsche cars, the early ones, and the resemblance to a beetle is definitely (and obviously I suppose) there.

I came across the 356 Porsche when I was about 18 and fell in love with it. When I realised it could be made in kit form based on a VW I was never going to do anything else.

So my beetle never did die, it just became reborn with less metal plates in it to hold it together.
