Nice looking Blue Bug.  People my age use to see these everywhere.  I've owned six Beetles, currently have a '70 Bug.  Every time I see a model like your's I want to build another.

All that talkin' an' lookin' I didn't realize that was yours Johnathan. Great build, clean. Nice to see it isn't accessory laden like so many.

Very nice.  You could buy a brand new Beetle when I was in high school for $1,800, and many did!
