My Grandfather lovingly gave me his ’67 beetle about 10 years ago. Recently, I asked him what spawned the purchase in the first place. In his own words:
“Eric, my memory is not what it used to be, but … I purchased the VW brand new in January of ’67. (Traded a ’62 Beetle) The price was very competitive, and it was common knowledge that the German VW of old made products that were the result of the highest level in engineering and quality.”
I love you.
