You may be asking yourself, “why is there a mention of something other than the ’67 Beetle here?” Well, the crew over at Circle The Wagen are personal friends of 1967beetle.com. Their fantastic film about the vintage Volkswagen will be shown to the world on June 9th. You can get your tickets here. Sounds like the perfect road trip for a ’67 Beetle. Congrats guys on all your hard work; looking forward to seeing the film. Check out the trailer below.
“Circle The Wagen is a feature-length buddy/roadtrip/docu-dramedy that follows Dave, an idealistic adventurer and automotive ne’er-do-well, and his convivial co-pilot Charlie—on their journey down Route 66 in a baby blue ’72 VW bus. Through mishaps and murals, gasoline baths and breakdowns the two discover a teeming underground of vintage VW diehards willing to help save “The Croc” from the scrap heap and rally her beleaguered owner on to California.”

Sarah sat in the driver’s seat for a moment, thinking. She pulled the hood latch, exited the car and removed the jack and tool pouch from beneath the hood.
She chocked the driver’s front wheel.
She popped off the driver’s rear wheel cover, then inserted the jack into the jacking port and raised the car enough so that the tire was off the concrete.
Next, she put the transmission into third gear, pressed the accelerator once to set the choke and turned the key to the “On” position.

Sarah arrived at the office a little late. Since she was such a stickler for arriving on time, her colleague asked the reason for the delay.
Sarah explained that when she opened the garage and got into “Schultz”, her ’67 Beetle to go to work… the battery was stone dead.
After glancing from the window and seeing Sarah’s Volkswagen in the parking lot, her buddy began to quiz Sarah about how she had managed to start the car.
