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!

Cool little bug.Great job. I had a '53 in high school, had the funny turn signals that popped out of the door post, 36 hp (my riding lawn mower has almost as much now). I could put $2 worth of gas in it and drive for a month!

Thank you for posting this! The site of your Beetle gave me a serious flashback, and I felt like a kid again, remembering for a moment the days when you took the sight of these cars on the road for granted.

I'm just going to have to get me one of these! ;)
