This is my VW Beetle, my first car, a 48 year old member of the family. I’ve had her since around 1989.
I drove her everywhere as a teenager, then she became a not-so-dependable second car as I became an adult. I had her painted green in college, then my husband restored her and painted her pink and white as a surprise for my wedding gift!
After an engine fire forced her into retirement, she’s been sitting for over a decade, in the garage. Now, she’s been stripped and media blasted, and had a rollback rag-top frame inserted, and for my birthday present, she is on her way to becoming a beauty again! I am so excited and cannot wait to drive her around town… and maybe to the beach! Pictures of her progress to come!
