Driving to Work

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.

Enjoy.

    1. It’s a lot of fun, especially now that so many people are following. My goal is to connect ’67 owners globally!

  4. 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

  5. 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.
    Happy motoring….

  6. 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.

    1. I just replaced the lock knobs with correct ’67 ones.
