History This little car was my first VW love, what can I say. You never get over your first......

This little car was an absolute blast. Picked her up at a fair price and then went crazy! Had allot of fun fixing her into a Cal Bug with all the trimmings. Unfortunatly as happens in many situations, life has a funny way of getting in the way. Some needed home repairs required me to sell her and move on. I will always have a special place in my heart for my first bug.
