Good evening, vintage Volkswagen enthusiasts.
I originally started this site back in 2010. (Internet archive) I thought to myself, “it would be really cool to create a platform that showcases the restoration process of my Grandpa’s 1967 Beetle.” (In memory of Frank R. Shoemaker, Sr.)
Fast forward to 2021, we now reach a global audience of vintage Volkswagen enthusiasts via email newsletter and organic traffic. I’m in amazement that so many people own and love the special one year only ’67 Beetle, and have sure met some really great folks along the way. I owe a debt of gratitude to Jay Salser for his countless contributions, friendship and knowledge.
We’re currently working on building a new vintage Volkswagen experience that will not only to continue to document the special 1967 Beetle, but all air-cooled vehicles. Stay tuned as we transition, and I thank you so much for the support over the last 11 years. Questions? Join the conversation below.
