We featured Kevin Gorton’s L639 Zenith Blue ’67 Beetle not long ago here at 1967beetle.com. Recently, he sent over this fun video of him driving his vintage pride and joy to work. Meep meep.
He also has a few other fun videos.
Hello, I’m Eric. I founded and curate 1967beetle.com. I also co-founded Lane Russell with my wife Amanda. I drive a ’67 Beetle daily, and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.
Thanks Eric! I'm going to do another one from another angle. Having fun with my 67!
I'm so glad to have given you a platform to share this stuff with the world. :)
You do a great job with the website. I always get excited when I get your email. But to see my video? Awesome!
It's a lot of fun, especially now that so many people are following. My goal is to connect '67 owners globally!
Hello, Kevin...I enjoyed your videos. Takes me back to the days when we drove EVERY day to and from work and everywhere else. Our children and my wife and I have many happy memories of those drives. It is heartening to see people like you still driving and enjoying your Beetle. I wish for you--continued Happy Motoring! jay
Thank you Jay,
I absolutely love driving her to work every day. There is an ap on my iphone "carminder" that helps me keep track of all my records and repairs. I am averaging 29 mpg, thats at 18 miles each way. Keeps me on the repairs.
Great videos. I need to make time to do this myself.
Music: Jethro Tull Song: "Living in the Past", title track from the 1972 LP. I played it many times when I was a DJ in L.A.
1967 Bugs were slaso the first year for inside door lock knob pulls, and you have the later model or after-market ones. Gotta fix that. Don't forget the door shaft collars that go with them.
I just replaced the lock knobs with correct '67 ones.
