1965 Beetle - headed home

After a couple years of shelf-warming followed by a couple months of progress, little Schultz is finally going to his new home today. Our VW club's summer picnic is today at Pam & Doug's house, and we will be leaving this little guy behind when we head home.

He'll be in good company - here he is with 'little Rudy,' the other replica I did for them back in 1996:

Thanks very much for the kind words, all; coming from all of you it means a lot.

In the 1:1 car world it can be hard sorta justifying our hobby to the folks who 'used to do it as a little kid,' so it's nice to receive feedback from those who really get it. <_<
